rza wu-tang clan new album
How did “Keep Watch,” the Clan's latest single, come out?
That was a planned single that I didn’t put out. That was done by the office. I didn’t produce the track, that was produced by Mathematics. He’s a dope hip-hop producer; out of the few people from the camp I think he still got that authentic Wu-Tang sound. He still has the past sampler [and] he still uses that when he makes his beats. I guess the guy went into the studio and wanted to try that formula. I was actually in Thailand when that song was released. I was filming a movie. When I came back they said, this is going to be the new single. I asked, “It sounded cool to me, did everybody else love it?” They took a vote and this is what they ended up with.

I said I want to get back into the studio and work on some of the songs I was working on, because I think one of my songs is good for the world to hear right now, too. I’m doing that right now. The next single will be a RZA-produced track I have, a song called “Ron O'Neal.” It has Method Man on it, Ghostface on it, myself, Inspectah Deck, and I’m looking for that to be the next single.

Where did the name for the single come from?
Ron O’Neal, you ever seen Super Fly? The song is named after the actor in Super Fly, he was a fly motherfucker. It has that '70s pimp vibe.

rich homie quan wiz khalifa tour
What made you go for artists like Rich Homie Quan and a Tyga this year?
When we start out planning the preparation for the tour and then looking at what artists to go after—or we’d really like to have—there’s such a broad or big list that comes together for all the different possibilities. And then, it sort of does come together like a puzzle. And with certain artists, you know, you have to go through different variables with the artists in terms of availability, interests or just, you know, negotiating the deal. And there are different factors as to who we end up getting.

So, as you start to craft your wish list, some things come together and some don’t. And the ones that do start to develop a certain pattern. I do feel like the first two years it was a little bit more of a mixed bag in terms of the different styles, I think which is what you were alluding to. It was a little bit of, you know, one act was a little bit radio style, one act is a little bit more Pitchfork style, alternative. In this case, it did sort of come together as what’s more of a chart radio-type of lineup. But I think that [the tour] started putting together some really good artists and stacking something a little stronger than what we’ve had in the past.
