XXL: Let’s start from the beginning. What were the issues between you and Raekwon?
RZA: I spoke to Raekwon, and Raekwon did tell me his business demands for the album. His demands for the company were at the level that wasn’t feasible. What he demanded would probably decapitate a budget for any company, for a budget on the Wu-Tang album. Every album got a budget; you take that budget and make that record.
