Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon and RZA are reportedly back on good terms and are expected to reunite to finish up an upcoming group project following a publicized feud. #WuTangBack
According to a Wu-Tang blog post, a truce between the "Chef" and "Bobby Digital" has been made.

Recently, RZA revealed there were two possibilities if the Chef did not take part in the upcoming group release.
"I haven't said this publicly but let me say this," RZA explained in an interview. "The album is slated to come out in July. If we don't come to terms I think within the next 30 days, then this will have to be an album without Raekwon or it'll never see the light of day and that's a very strong potential because I would not want to put out a Wu-Tang album without every alive member available. I can't put Ol' Dirty on it because he's not here physically." (Sports Illustrated)
Recently, the Wu head said a big misunderstanding had torn Rae from him.
"I'm gonna clear one thing up on the Raekwon thing. The newest article in Rolling Stone, Raekwon says I'm a bold-faced liar, right, which I'm far from. I don't even lie. I'm a grown man, I got children. I only got one rule in my house, 'Don't lie to me.' But what happened was I just did an interview a few weeks ago that 'just' came out. Later. I guess when it came out he read it. I spoke to Raekwon about eight days ago but the interview was probably fourteen or sixteen days ago, so he says RZA's a liar, he spoke to me. No, when I did the interview, brother, I didn't speak to you. I hadn't spoke to him in six months before then until recently. ... He gave me his demands, which we presented to the company - but it was no lying." ("The Hot 97 Morning Show")
In an interview published last month, Rae said Bobby Digital needed to come up with a winning strategy for the Wu.
"RZA's the type of dude where, in the 90s, he ruled. Now it's a new day. You're not attached no more. It's like being a coach and you won rings back in the day, but now your team is in ninth place. It's time for a new f*cking game plan. I sit here with integrity all the time. When it comes to my music. When it comes to my business. When it comes to the fans. I'm always going to give them the best of me. And I know the Wu-Tang Clan is built like that, but if they're sitting there listening to one man, ain't no "I" in "Team."" (Rolling Stone)
