As mentioned a couple of weeks ago (See: [nburl=http://www.wutangcorp.com/clan/gzagenius/news/show/462/]GZA Mixtape Update[/nburl]), GZA/Genius is releasing an exclusive and limited edition album full of classic songs and unreleased gems. The album, titled Collections Of Classics will be for sale April 24th. Apart from the collection of classic songs GZA has given the fans throughout the years, there’s also some new material. Besides the song Killa Hills 2004 performed by GZA’s son Justice (See: [nburl=http://www.wutangcorp.com/clan/gzagenius/news/show/413/]Killa Hills 10304 2004[/nburl]), there are also five more exclusive songs including one song like you never heard GZA before. The beat for the intro was done by the newest Wu-Tang Element, Bronze Nazareth. All in all, it’s a real collectors item. The first 300 copies are signed by GZA himself.
Collections Of Classics shares the same concept as Liquid Swords as far as the track listing is concerned, the back cover is like a story instead of a regular track listing. The album, however, also contains a fold-out part that will give you the real track listing as well as the name of the new, unreleased and exclusive songs. You can read the story on the back of the album below, it gives you an idea of which tracks are on this upcoming album:
YES, YES, YALL.... WHEN THE FAT LADY SINGS I WANNA F@#K for PUBLICITY and FAME. SPARRING MINDS stood SILENT as THIRD WORLD LABELS were DASHING thru KILLA HILLS to give the SILVERBACKS a HIGH PRICE, SMALL REWARD. SHADOWBOXIN before the DUAL OF THE IRON MIC creates a HIP-HOP FURY, wanna be MC's MIC TRIPPIN off of LIQUID SWORDS & it's extraordinary wordplay, what is the meaning of C.R.I.M.E? WU BANGA 101 was taught in room 1112 the first question asked was about the Brooklyn Zoo & were they from an ANIMAL PLANET. Before the class is over you will know the difference between Hip-Hop & Rap, & the most common question always asked is... DID YA SAY THAT?

Note that this story is not the same as the track listing and that songs do not appear in order.
The album will be sold in Europe when the GZA tour is starting on April 30th in London. We’ll list the dates for the GZA European tour on the site as soon as we get them later this week.
