Raekwon announced the project's first single would debut within two weeks.
"We gonna be dropping the motherf*cking single, I'm telling y'all now, look at me," he said in a video last weekend. "We dropping the single in approximately ten days. Ten days from now...You like the song, it's all good. You don't like it, that's all good too. I ain't expecting everybody to like anything and everything, just keep it real with yourself. But at the end of the day, I feel good about it. I feel good about the movement, I feel good about that y'all able to get this motherf*cking record and yo man, just visualize the audio man."

Rae recently confirmed fans Ghostface Killah, who played a prominent role in the original disc, would also contribute to the album's follow-up.
"This is me going back without a record deal," Raekwon described in an interview with Angie Martinez. "I ain't care about the radio, I ain't care about none of that. All I cared about was giving y'all something that I felt was from the heart and putting together that poisonous production. We got an all-star production crew on it. We got RZA, we got Dre, we got Pete Rock, we got Marley Marl, we got Erick Sermon, we got Alchemist. They all wanted to get down...We got them all to come in, make a robot to challenge RZA's production. So these dudes are like another Voltron that came together on the production tip...They made me go back to straight up Champion hoody and dirty Timbs again...Ghost is on there, he did what he had to do for me. He's still doing his thing over there with the Def Jam thing so we had to fix a few things so he could -- that's corny to me, but like, I gotta respect it because I know when Wu-Tang first came into the game, we all said we were gonna go do our own dolo thing."
