Shavo Odadjian From System Of A Down This interview with System Of A Down’s bassist, Shavo Odadjian, pretty much confirms the rumours regarding the album with the GZA. Lets hope it pans out. Link

What have you done with them?

I did three songs on the new record. We have future projects. I’m working with the GZA to do a record. We’re going to put a record together. I’ll bring in Meth (Method Man) and RZA. It’s an album. It’s a story that GZA is writing, and I’m writing all the music to it. Each song’s going to be a chapter. We’re working on it separately. But right now–when this tour ends–I’m going to go and we’re going to work in the studio.

How did you meet the Wu-Tang Clan?

I’ve been a huge fan ever since I can remember, when RZA used to be Prince Rakeem. What happened was we got offered to be on this compilation for Loud Records. They asked us to either pick a Mobb Deep song or a Wu-Tang song. I really wanted to do it, and the band was just, “We don’t do rap.” I said, “I know we don’t but we can do it System style. Let’s do a Wu-Tang song. It would be cool to do for me.” We decided to do “Shame on a Nigga,” which, with four white-looking dudes, we did it and I was kind of leery of yelling the word “Nigga.” I was friends with Method Man because we toured together and we became friends after the tour. I was at a Method show, I saw RZA there, and I said this is what we did. He said, “Well, I’ve heard it.” He said it’s good. I said, “Can you be on it please?” He said “It’s good the way it is, but I will if you want me to.” A week later, we go in the studio, and I met all of them. We did the “Shame” song, and I guess I got some [phone] numbers. We’ve been contacting each other ever since. Right before this tour started, they were in L.A., RZA called me and said, “I’m in L.A. come hang out and we’re doing a new record.” I went the first day and they were like, “Do you want to play on this thing?” I went home, got a bass for the next day. I went in again and we recorded until 7 a.m. And, man, RZA was really cool. We jammed, really. Then GZA asked if I wanted to do a record and I said, “Hell, yeah.” If you asked me a year ago or two years ago, who would be my dream lyricist to work with, I’d say probably GZA because I’d say he’s amazing. He’s not just a rapper. When everybody’s hanging out smoking weed, he’s reading the dictionary. They don’t call him the genius for no reason. I’m looking forward to it.
