A day after buzz behind Wu-Tang Clan's 20th anniversary reunion being in jeopardy, new reports suggest everything may once again be back on track.
New tweets from the iconic rap group's verified Twitter page claim Ghostface Killah and Method Man have already started to crunch away contributions to the Clan's upcoming studio effort.
"Wu-Tang this is how it is going down Method Man has laid four verses, Ghostface Killah just laid two new verses, and 2 verses from Inspectah Deck. The new Wu Tang LP is coming together. We moving baby....#BetterTomorrow.," a post read May 1st.

Just yesterday, a post surfaced on the Wu's Twitter account which placed blame on individual group members' management for causing a huge setback.
"Well the mighty Wu-Tang Clan let there solo managers ruin the 20th anniversary campaign.," someone tweeted from the Wu Twitter account on April 30th. (Wu-Tang Clan's Twitter)
A few weeks ago, Wu's Raekwon explained why a reunion should be more meaningful than putting extra money in their pockets.
"The bottom line is: Of course I want to see a Wu-Tang reunion. Of course. Who wouldn't? I just want everything to be right, the business. When we made a lot of our great music, it was because we were in harmony. You cannot put guys together if there is no harmony, and on top of it, we're doing business. As a man with children, I have to always look at that. It's bigger than sometimes just the thought of it, the fact of it, it just gotta make sense." (RapFix)
Last fall, group member Masta Killa hit up SOHH and spoke on the delayed regathering.
"The reunion already started, man," Masta told SOHH. "You know what I'm saying? [laughs] That's something natural. That's like coming home for Thanksgiving. Sometimes all the family shows up, sometimes you might be missing a brother and you're like, 'Ah man! It would have been the bomb if he had came.' You know? We're gonna do what we do naturally but I'm definitely looking forward to bringing it all back together and holding up the 'W' again. Whenever that comes, just know it's coming. Just know it's coming." (SOHH)
