In celebration of the release of his new collaboration album with producer DLPComputers For The Hood, iNTeLL (mastermind behind 2ND GENERATION WU, son of Wu-Tang Clan’s U-God, and carrier of the legendary hip-hop collective’s creative torch) will be playing two upcoming shows in New York this July.
The first will be this Saturday, July 10, supporting legendary Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg at Lot45 in Brooklyn, NY (411 Troutman St, Brooklyn NY 11237). The second will be an album release party on July 17 in Beacon, NY at Barking Frog (436 Fishkill Ave, Beacon NY 12508). Tickets will be available at doors for both shows.
The journey to Computers For The Hood was a long and arduous one for iNTeLL, as he was having creative burnout coupled with the 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 for the synergy between creative partner DLP’s raw old school-influenced production that still has a modern flair perfect for 2021 and iNTeLL’s beatwork of memorable bars, hooks, and stories that serve as a perfect homage to his home turf of Staten Island.
“We ended up being able to secure verses from Method Man, Del, the Team Backpack champion Denzil Porter, Tahmell (son of Rakim), my second collaboration with Mickey Factz, Ruste Juxx, and the king of lyrical Horrorcore R.A. The Rugged Man,” he describes. “This little project turned into a full-fledged studio album with notable features, incredible production and a message that resonates.”
Computers For The Hood by 2nd Generation WU’s iNTeLL x DLP is out now independently.
