"It's been awhile since we've done [the whole album], since the early 2000s, maybe," Inspectah Deck told Billboard. "It's 25 years, man, and we stood the test of time and we're still proving ourselves -- and people still appreciate you like that, which is dope. So it's gonna be fun. We're definitely gonna give you the business, 'cause that's what Wu-Tang does. We get up there and keep the essence of hip-hop alive. We made our music just to be a voice for the voiceless, and that's what we continue to be 25 years later, so when we get up there, don't expect a lot of Cristal popping. When you come to our show, you want some food for thought, and we've got our aprons on."
