Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon has updated diehard fans waiting to get their hands on his crew’s delayed A Better Tomorrow album after a publicized fallout with group leader RZA.
With their rift finally behind them, Rae said the Wu movement is back on track.
“We finally reached some kind of great agreement, me and RZA. And, yeah, everything is starting to happen… it’s starting to make sense. I can’t really give you too much ballistics on that, but as far as me being on board to do what I’m supposed to do, my team is telling me that it’s going to be a great situation. So I’m excited.” (Clash Music)
Wu member Ghostface Killah recently acknowledged how much effort and force was needed to keep a veteran hip-hop group together for decades.
“You can’t really get mad at it because look at all the groups you know that was from back then. They replace them with new members and some n*ggas die off. That’s what happens. So, to try to keep this family together, yo, it’s f*ckin” hard,” Ghost said in an interview. “We love each other, but love and business is two different things. You gotta understand. We’re men now. We ain’t coming in on some Fat Albert And The Gang sh*t like we did early on. We got heads on our shoulders now. We got babies. Some of us is grandparents. So, you gotta make sure your foundation is right. Wu-Tang is the foundation.” (Complex News)
Raekwon admitted business complications had delayed his involvement on a new Wu project a few weeks ago.
“I’m happy. I love the Wu-Tang fans. I love my crew,” Rae said in an interview. “But it’s business. When you got babies, nothing don’t count unless it makes sense for them.” (Shade 45)
According to a Wu-Tang blog post from last month, a truce between Rae and RZA had been made.
