RZA Blames Raekwon For Wu-Tang Album Delay
In celebration of Wu-Tang Clan’s 20th anniversary of Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, one of the founding members of the Wu paid a visit to The Arsenio Hall Show.
RZA spoke about the death of ODB, The Wu’s impact in hip-hop and the status of the next collaborative album. A few days before the Wu’s 20th anniversary, RZA conducted an interview with Grantland and shared his thoughts on Raekwon and Ghostface Killah’s work ethic. “If they give that energy, I will give us a great last album. If they don’t give us the energy, I gotta figure out a plan B.”
Later on, Rae responded to RZA’s article and voiced his displeasure. “Yea I just read that RZA article? Shit is funny to me. I love u RZA, u know what it really is.”
When asked about the Raekwon situation, RZA discussed his comments with Arsenio. “I think when you do 20 years of music and your fans are still supporting you, before you close the chapter, it’s good to do one more album.” He continued to say that many of the members have come to lay down verses for the album except Rae.
