raekwon rza beef
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. What he's demanding would cripple the budget in a way compared to whatever else we had to get. I don’t think the office is going to do that for him; that’s on the business side.

Creatively, it’s like I said—creatively, I haven’t worked with Raekwon in years. Maybe we’re on different creative paths, that’s very possible. He mentions that a lot in his articles. I can respect that. Creatively he may be looking at [things] one way and creatively I may be looking at [them] the other way. But we haven’t been in the studio together in years. So when you come into the studio with me, anybody, magic happens. It takes time to make art.

Me and Raekwon haven’t been in the studio in a long time for us to even say, creatively, I don’t know where he is at or I don’t know where I’m at. We can’t even speak because we haven’t been there rocking, yo. You hear some of the old Wu-Tang songs, brothers would come to my house, they’ll do a song and record their verses and they would come back three days later and be amazed at what I'd done with what they left. I sit there as a producer and I add things and I construct it and I’ll orchestrate it. I’ve been doing that for years now; I can define it, I’m an orchestrator.
