Wu-Tang Clan’s Cappadonna recently chopped it up with SOHH and gave a small update on the upcoming Wu-Block compilation album along with why it is time to pass the torch to hip-hop newcomers.
Capp also said he has no plans of giving up the microphone for good despite decades in the rap game.
“It was good man, everything was going well,” Capp told SOHH when asked about the upcoming Wu-Block album. “I’m just here to deliver the message, man. Whatever it takes, that’s what we do. We got the wings that give us the ability to fly above. It’s just about staying relevant and staying true to the kids. I do feel like it’s time to pass the torch but I love the sport and as long as it’s God’s will, I’m going to continue to go out and touch the people. I love this too much.” (SOHH)

Album talk to the side, the Wu’s GZA recently revealed some in-house issues the Clan has experienced.
I have no idea. There’s been talk. But I don’t know what going on, you know? I can’t say. I mean, we haven’t been on the same page in years,” GZA revealed in an interview when asked about reunion talks. “Nah. It is what it is. Sometimes that match burns out. So, no, I don’t feel bad about it. It’s good. I’m grateful for everything we have done throughout our careers and if there’s nothing else to put out, then there’s nothing to put out. I’m constantly writing and working. It doesn’t stop there.” (Rolling Stone)
Last year, the Wu’s Raekwon recently hinted at plans to do something special for his Clan’s 20th anniversary in 2012.
Next year also marks the 20th anniversary of the formation of the Wu-Tang Clan, the legendary hip-hop group that first introduced the world to Raekwon, the rapper says that the collective has big plans. “We’ve been sitting around talking,” he says. “We got something lined up. I can’t speak on it yet because it’s still confidential until it’s actually solidified.” (Billboard)
