GZA on 'Liquid Swords 2', and New Album, 'Dark Matter': I'm a Slow WriterIn a new interview with ExpressNightOut.com, The Genius made mention made mention of both the elusive Liquid Swords sequel, as well as another solo LP, Dark Matter.

Before you get too excited, it’s important to note that GZA has laid out the title and concept for Dark Matter, but has yet to even begin crafting songs for the album. As for Liquid Swords 2: The Return of the Shadowboxer, which he announced in 2010 would be produced by Wu-Tang cohort, The RZA, he didn’t offer any more details on the project’s progress.

“I am definitely a relatively slow writer,” he said in the interview. “I’m fastidious and a perfectionist.”

GZA did, however, say that the new album, Dark Matter, will be based on, “years of interest and reading, and from watching shows on networks like Discovery and National Geographic and from TED [Technology, Entertainment and Design] talks.”

The Wu rapper has made headlines most recently as he’s begun a series of lectures at some of country’s most-prestigious universities. Among those, GZA has recently imparted wisdom on students of both MIT and Harvard.
