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) is proud to independently release Computers For The Hood, his brand new collaboration album with producer DLP, today. Aiming to unite old-school with new school, Computers For The Hood features guest spots from hip-hop legends Method Man, Del tha Funkee Homosapien, R.A. The Rugged Man, among others. In addition, iNTeLL’s new music video for “Know the Gospel (feat. R.A)” has been released simultaneously with the new record. You can stream Computers For The Hood here.
In addition to the new album, iNTeLL will be launching a new designer clothing line this year. “I’m excited to be released a clothing brand called ØFF•SPRįNG on June 18. It’s a collaboration with a company that uses A.I. to design the art. Shoutout to UrbanCoolab for all the help here!”
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.”
