Nope.

Final Thoughts:

The Saga Continues is proof that not everything Wu-Tang Clan produces is absolute gold, so what went wrong here? Well the whole project just feels lazy, as if the emcees weren’t really into the project, but just making it for the fans. Wu-Tang is still an amazing group of rappers, but The Saga Continues is really boring, I’m not even kidding, it feels like they were half asleep while putting this sloppy mess together. When you’re as big as the Wu-Tang is, fans have big expectations for your collective albums, The Saga Continues couldn’t have been what fans/critics/or the emcees themselves really wanted. Can we all just pretend it didn’t happen? Please?
