From Wu-Tang Corp: "The legendary Hip-Hop group, Wu-Tang Clan, has recently cleared the first ever Beatles sample for their upcoming Album, 8 Diagrams.
The group was originally scheduled for a November 13th release but due to the magnitude of the sample and the History being made, 8 Diagrams will now impact on December 4th.
Special Thanks to Danny Harrison & Erykah Badu for helping bring this song to life!! Also Thanks to The Harrison Estate & The Beatles for helping make this possible!!"
It's weird though. Didn't Ghost sample that tune already? On that My Guitar thang that I had labeled as Star Guitar on one of those classy ATD joints. Yeah. He DID. Well, sort of. He raps the shit out of some instrumental cover version of the thing. Listen here. It's great. That shit was too expensive for those dumbfucks at Epic to be arsed to clear - but RZA's on some serious shit this time round. According to Wikipedia, George Harrison's son Dhani Harrison (a big Wu-Tang fan) and John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers are on the song, called Gently Weeps, that features Mef and Ghost playing a drug addict, and drug dealer, respectively. RZA calls the latter's performance "one of the best lyrics I'm ever heard him say". Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
