“I’m really confident with what we’ve put together with II,” Raekwon states. “It’s another classic. I challenged myself and I didn’t try to repeat myself or topics. I just had to make sure I captured the feeling that the first one had and gave to the listener.”
In the classic song “How High”, Redman says “I get it on like Smif-N-Wess, who cliques the best.” He answers the question on the BO2 intro with “talk that greasy, on and off tv, even pigs love the bosshogg’s cd, what you find hard, I do it easy, I could see why the next guy want to be me.”
Executive Produced by RZA, “CHAMBER MUSIC” features: Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, RZA, U-God and Inspectah Deck, plus affiliate Killah Priest, alongside classic hip-hop MCs such as AZ, Havoc (Mobb Deep), Cormega, Kool G Rap, Masta Ace, Sadat X (Brand Nubian) and Sean Price (Heltah Skeltah). This is the album hardcore Wu-Tang fans have waited years for.
The eleven captivating songs on Shontelligence were recorded over a two year period. Co-written with producers Sturken and Rogers, the album presents an array of songs which display Shontelle’s depth and versatility; like the motivational anthem, “Battle Cry,” also featured on a compilation album inspired by President-Elect Barack Obama’s campaign called Yes We Can: Voices of a Grassroots Movement, and “Life Is Not An Easy Road,” a reggae-influenced track that encourages strength in the face of adversity.
