Raekwon Is Excited For The New Wu-Tang Album
RaekwonAdvice: Don’t let a fellow rapper’s co-sign go to your head.
Raekwon: When you can get somebody that paid their dues for so long to speak on you, hell yeah, you muthafuckin’ right that helps. But, at the same token, I think that it should be used as a medal, and not as a weapon. You can’t lean on somebody just because one muthafucka feel like you nice; you still got the world to please. So it’s still about working as hard as you can to show muthafuckas, Yo, this is why Dr. Dre believed in me, or Eminem, or whoever believed, because they see I believe in myself. So you can’t get too flabbergasted or open too quick. I seen many niggas come in and think that they the niggas ahead of time, based off what we telling them, and, at the end of the day, they lose focus. Don’t get too souped up and think you that nigga—that’s when you fall on your face.
It seems that all is good in the land of the Wu.
Raekwon had been very vocal about airing his displeasure about participating with a new Wu project, but after a talk with the RZA he seems 100% on board. DJ Whoo Kid spoke with Raekwon this past week on his show the Whoolywood Shuffle. The iconic MC spoke about getting on board for the new project.
"I'm just excited to just get it going and just come with something that's going to be crazy. I don't want to be attached to nothing that ain't winning."
Rae just chalked up the squabble to making sure the business is right.
"It was something that needed to happen and we working it out," the Wu-Tnag founding member said. "Like I said I love the Wu-Tang fans. I love my crew. But its business man. When you got babies, nothing don't count unless it makes sense for them."
