RZA Regrets Not Doing “Wu-Tang Forever” Remix With Drake
Days after Drake released his 2013 song, "Wu-Tang Forever," Wu-Tang Clan member U-God said a remix was in the works. Nearly four years later, the remix has never been released and now, RZA reveals the group missed out on recording it.
During an interview with Power 106, the Wu-Tang leader was asked if the collaboration would ever take place. "That should of happened," RZA said before praising Drizzy and revealing the group was on tour at the time.
RZA said Drake threw the group an alley-oop with the offer for a remix but sadly, the group missed it. The rapper also said he regrets not making the remix. While he doesn't regret it for popularity reasons, he does wish they could have worked together because as a veteran, he has a duty to work with the youth and "rekindle that fire."
Elsewhere in the interview, RZA also discussed the group's Once Upon a Time In Shaolin album that was purchased for $2 million by Martin Shkreli, and a recent meeting he had with Kanye West.
While recent reports state the album was sold on eBay for $1 million, RZA disputed the claims, saying paperwork has yet to be signed. He also revealed he was trying to purchase the album back himself but legalities were getting in the way.
As for his conversation with Yeezy, RZA said the two spoke less than 10 days ago and said the Chicago rapper was in a "great place." RZA didn't hear any new music from ’Ye but did say the rapper was "about to get busy."
