Raekwon Blasts RZA And Calls For A Change To The Wu-Tang Clan

| April 18, 2014 | 0 Comments


In a recent interview with Billboard, Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon responded to negative comments made by fellow Wu-Tang Clan member RZA.

RZA told Vlad TV, “I haven’t had a chance to really talk to him about why [you’re not involved with the album]. But I would say that maybe creatively we on different paths.” What’s your response to that?
 I don’t know why he said he didn’t speak to me, because he did speak to me. We spoke about two weeks ago. It was me, him, his brother and business partner Devine and we talked about why I’m not there right now. They know where I’m at and at the end of the day, him saying he didn’t speak to me is a bold-faced lie.

And yeah, we are at creative differences because at the end of the day, I want to win. I’m used to being a winner. Being that I feel the team is being compromised by his so-called “logic” of making music, I have a problem with that because I love my fans. I would never want to give my fans anything other than the best. So when we’re sitting there discussing the creative process of making a great album for the fans, I’m not going to never settle for less. I’m not the only one [in the group] that feels this way too.

What do you mean specifically when you say the team is compromised?
 This sh%t is not right. It’s not making us give the fans the best that we can give them. So of course we have a problem with that. It’s like coming out with some music that you’re not feeling. Therefore, it’s being compromised by RZA and his brother Devine, Mitchell Diggs. My thing is, yeah, he’s right, we’re on different pages when it comes to being creative because RZA, you’re not in the field no more. I’m still paying attention to what’s going on and an amazing group that’s got so much potential to be bigger than what they are if they just focus and come out with great music. On “Keep Watch,” you put this new young kid on there who nobody knows who he is – and I’m not taking shots at the kid – but I don’t even know who he is. That song is something that the crew didn’t have knowledge of, from what I’m being told. Dudes ain’t feeling good about it.

Could this be the end of the Wu-Tang Clan?  You would think with all that they have been through that this is just another bump in the road.  For those who have siblings, we all know how easy it is to bump heads with your brothers or sisters.

Who knows, maybe they will sell the one-copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for a few million and put their issues aside.  They would have to divvy that up a couple times with all the members that they have, but I’m sure that achievement along with the cash would bring them closer together.

Be on the lookout for A Better Tomorrow to drop this summer…maybe.
