Wu Tang Clan’s Method Man has said that he is planning a joint album along with fellow band members RZA, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah.
According to MTV News the rapper said that the foursome were “in discussion” about the project, which would also see some producers outside of the band involved.
“It’s in discussion right now,” he said. “I don’t want to say it’s written in stone, but it’s in discussion. I want some feedback from the fans to see how they would take that.
He added that the album would feature some “RZA-produced tracks aswell as some outside producers, of course, and we gonna have Wu Tang members on the album, but it’ll be a Rae, Ghost and Meth album.”
He explained that he preferred collaborating to working solo, hence his desire to gear up the project.
“Honestly, I don’t want to make an album by myself,” he said, “but it’s something that’s required, and the fans want that, so I’m gonna do that.
“But the same way with my shows, I like doing shows with brothers instead of just doing them by myself. I like to have a crowd around. And have that input to make the project better.”

Is this the end of the Wally era? As part of Def Jam’s 25th Anniversary Pack, due out in Fall 2009, adidas will reportedly be doing shoes with Method Man, Redman, Young Jeezy and Ghostface Killah (seen here). “Tony with the goalie mask” gets a Forum, complete with a multi-tone purple upper, white sockliner, gold “G” logo and his face on the tongue. Predictably, Starksy also gets the gumsole. Just don’t wear these in the heavy rain. More flicks after the jump. [Via Kix and the City]

The Wu’s Ghostface Killah is set to be immortalized in a comic book of his own, by him and featuring him.
The upcoming comic/graphic novel is titled Cell Block Z, featuring a boxer character named Cole Dennis who is framed for a crime he didn’t commit.
Here’s the summary, via the publisher: To his fans, Cole Dennis is a heavyweight contender with a devastating right hook. To a city being held hostage by chaos and terror, Dennis has a grit and charisma that make him the shining hope for justice—until he is arrested for a brutal murder. Framed for a crime he did not commit, he finds himself captive in a foreboding high-tech super prison whose masters secretly conspire with the government to turn inmates into tomorrow’s most terrifying bio-weapons — with Cole Dennis as the intended prize specimen. But Dennis is nobody’s lab rat. Reborn as a towering engine of destruction, Dennis will prepare for the fight of his life. He will rename himself Ghostface Killah and with his righteous rage stop these madmen.
The book is illustrated by Marvel’s Chris Walker and screenwriters Marlon Chapman and Shauna Garr helped the rapper pen the story.
Cell Block Z will hit bookstores on July 29, via Hachette Book Group.
