As if the Wu Tang Clan hadn’t made enough hip hop history in their storied career, the first single from their new album, 8 Diagrams, hits yet another milestone (more so music in general). The Heart Gently Weeps interpolate the Beatles’ White Album classic (where the guitar is doing the weeping). Accompanied by RZA‘s smooth guitar production and Erykah Badu‘s hauntingly beautiful chorus; Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and Method Man demonstrate that while the hood life can easily make one’s heart weep, eventually you have to rebound and get back to business. Dhani Harrison (George’s son) helped supervise The Heart Gently Weeps and judging from its quality, George is looking down, listening and very proud of how his work was arranged.
