iNTeLL (of 2nd Generation Wu) Feat. R.A. The Rugged Man - KNOW THE GOSPEL
iNTeLL, son of Wu-Tang Clan's U-God, and carrier of the legendary Hip Hop collective's creative torch, ponders an important philosophical and theoretical question with producer DLP on his new album Computers For The Hood.
"What could a young mind in the hood do with a computer? Create art? Start a business? I'm not sure, but if I could give out computers for the hood to find out, I would," he contemplates. The record aims to unite old-school with new school, featuring guest spots from hip-hop legends Method Man, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, R.A. The Rugged Man, Ruste Juxx among others.
The journey to Computers For The Hood was a long and arduous one for iNTeLL, as he was having creative burnout, in addition to ongoing stresses caused by the COVID pandemic. However, this road has led to the best work of his career so far. Computers For The Hood is a tight 11 track showcase of creative partner DLP's raw old school-influenced production that still has a modern flair perfect for 2021. The beatwork serves as the perfect canvas for iNTeLL to confidently lay down memorable bars, hooks, and stories that serve as a perfect homage to his home turf of Staten Island.
The lead single and video "Know The Gospel" with R.A. The Rugged Man is out now
