Common and RZA are working together on the upcoming adaptation of the 70s book series ˝Black Samurai˝. Common will apear as Robert Sand and RZA will apear as an executive producer on the project. Developer of the show is Andre Gaines, who has the rights to the original Marc Olden series, and it’s developed under Cinematic Studios.

In the series, Robert Sand is a black man trained by a Japanese samurai master . He goes on a mission of vengeance, hell-bent on
killing the terrorists and evil powers that have killed the people that he loves. The project was first adapted from it’s source material in a 1977 film that was starred by Jim Kelly.

Gaines talked to Variety about RZA’s role in helping to bring the project to light and add a bit of validity to the series.
“There is a long tradition and storied relationship between hip-hop and martial arts,” Gaines said. “Having RZA and the Wu-Tang Clan brand on board to executive produce will validate the series even more and mobilize the fans.”

frenkie kontra indigo

Točno dva mjeseca prošlo je od tajnovitog boravka u Berlinu gdje je ovaj trojac marljivo radio na novom materijalu. Otkako su ugledali prve fotografije na društvenim mrežama, publika nestrpljivo čeka da čuje šta su to Frenkie, Kontra i Indigo pripremili u prelijepom berlinskom Red Bull studiju . E, tom čekanju je konačno došao kraj! Danas je službeno najavljeno da uskoro izlazi njihov prvi zajednički album .

Poznato je da FM Jam trojac već godinama surađuje na koncertima i pjesmama, ali ovo je prvi put da su se okupili oko zajedničkog projekta. ” Putanja “, kako je ime ovog LP-a, sadrži Indigovu produkciju te Frenkijeve i Kontrine prepoznatljive britke i oštre tekstove. Svi oni koji su slavili “Gdje god su moji” i “Uz zvuk sirene” mogu se radovati novim bombastičnim trakama i novom vrhunskom repu!

Jedini gosti na “Putanji” su Shtuka te srbijanska legenda Juice , čiji govor krasi sam kraj albuma. Treba napomenuti da su za naslovnicu albuma odgovorni Mario Ilić , koji je objektivom foto-aparata zabilježio cijeli boravak u Berlinu, te jedan od najboljih njemačkih dizajnera – Adopekid iz Hamburga !

Druga velika vijest vezana za ovaj album je i ime izdavača. Naime, Frenkie, Kontra i Indigo “Putanju” izdaju u suradnji s hrvatskom, odnosno svjetskom diskografskom kućom Universal Music . Podrška ove diskografske kuće potvrđuje samo da se iza “Putanje” krije vrhunski materijal koji će biti dostupan i za digitalne prednarudžbe početkom sedmog mjeseca .

Sam datum izlaska albuma je 9. rujna 2016 . U međuvremenu fanove očekuju brojni singlovi, videospotovi te kratki “making of” dokumentarac koji će nas lagano uvesti u “Putanju”. Budite u pripravnosti!
