GFTD connects with Jackie Paladino over the 88-Keys produced ‘Soothe The Soul’.
Using the video as a launching point now that the 2nd Generation WU legacy is well underway with the debut of single â€œ7.O.D.â€Â last Fall and now with â€œNew Generation,â€ iNTeLL and PXWER have set off on a new branch of the WU Family Tree by coining their new project GFTD. â€œWhen we launched â€˜7.O.D.â€™ back in November, we had more than just the two of us to represent 2nd Generation Wu,â€ he explains, in response to similarities in the grand â€˜father and kidâ€™ combos that include the Lennons, the Marleys, the Kravitzes, the Dylans, the Coles, the Zappas and the Van Halens among others.
â€œNow, because SunGodÂ [son of Ghostface Killah] is on Tour with GFK and YDBÂ [son of the late Old Dirty Bastard] is on tour with WTC, me and PXWER have decided to be GFTD. Pronounced â€˜Giftedâ€™, also an acronym stating Go For The DreamÂ or Going For The DomeÂ became our music will expand your mind,â€ he continues.
Now, as they continue prep on the upcoming GFTDÂ album, iNTeLL and PXWER are looking forward to the new stage in their continuation of the WU legacy. â€œEvery few years, Hip-Hop reaches within itself to bring out something new,â€ he concludes. â€œThis nostalgic sound from the new generation became what we now know as 2nd Generation Wu (Pxwer, SunGod, YDB & iNTeLL) from the gathering of royal hip hop lineage. â€˜7.O.D.â€™ was born and The World was awakened to a different but familiar style that Hip-Hop seemed to have found within itself.
However, thereâ€™s even more departments within 2GWU just like from â€˜Wu-Massacreâ€™ and â€˜Wu-Blockâ€™ from the original Wu lineage. After digging deeper into 2nd Generation Wu, we unearthed the GFTD. Comprised of 2nd Generation Wu members iNTeLL and PXWER this dynamic duo expresses the greatness embedded in their DNA as they formulate their own ways to uplift and educate the masses through longevity and timeless music.â€
