Ghostface Angry at “Wu-Tang Hierarchy” Over The 8 Diagrams Release Date

In an interview with MTV News, Ghostface Killah expresses his frustrations that the Wu-Tang Clan will release their new album, The 8 Diagrams, on December 4, the same date Pretty Toney plans to drop his new solo LP, The Big Dough Rehab. “I had December 4 for the longest,” Ghost told MTV. “But the Wu album, brothers was kinda late on doing whatever they were doing and pushed it back…on my date. I’m not [mad at] all the members. It’s not based on the members, but the hierarchy at Wu-Tang Clan is on some bullshit. They trying to fuck around and make me push my album back and doing all this. But niggas ain’t fucking around or give us money when we did them Wu-Tang tours. They first one, they paid us after a while, but this last one, niggas is holding onto a lot of money. And [they’re] upset based on that. It’s a battle right now.” The Big Dough Rehab will be Ghostface’s fourth album on Def Jam Records and will feature guest appearances by Raekwon and Method Man, and production by Scram Jones. Producer Sean C. will helm the boards for the LP’s lead single, “Celebrate,” which also features the legendary Kid Capri. “The Big Dough Rehab is my album,” Ghost told MTV News. “8 Diagrams is their album. But it ain’t got nothing to do with the regular members. ‘Cause I love Raekwon, Masta Killa, U-God, Genius, all them. But it’s on right now.” In addition, Tony Starks claims SRC Records CEO, Steve Rifkind, who signed the Wu to Loud Records, has allegedly made calls to stop Ghost from releasing The Big Dough Rehab on December 4.

    shit i’m just glad Scram Jones is gonna be producin on the album and i was kinda thrown off that both albums would drop on the 4th….i definitely feel the same way as tony on this though

    first!! dag son, wu-tang can’t be bickering like this. someone has to back down. been anticipating this too long. not a good look on either side.

    I can understand how he feels.
    Like its crashing him, and his album.
    Ya know Wu are gonna get more publicity.

    WTF the big problem Ghost ?

    It’s money in the bank either way, his album will probably do better if he rides out the WU album and drops it in Jan or later when they got all the hype because the WU will be turing all the fuck over for a while anyway and he won’t have time to do his solo thing.

    Sounds like a ego thing to me with “who’s the best in wu-tang” that’s the shit that fucks good groups up and good music, at the end of the day I think he would cake more if he waited it out till like march when the wu ture’s slow down.

    Shit, if you die hard Wu like me you gone cop both, but I understand what he sayin though.

  • I.N.F

    So far Ghost’s albums been betta than most of the fuckin Wu albums with the exception of 36 chambers. No rocket science, Tony Starks is the shit to watch for.

  • lil real

  • stoneyisland

    fuck all this hierachy shit, be a man and say whats on your mind, if you got beef with another man dont hide behind some fancy word. Man up and call that nigga out, settle that shit like men sun. Everybody know Ghost is really the only wu tang member still relevent and some of them other wu cats are probably made jelly, but what the fuck is ghost suppose to do? i’m a cop his new shit before I cop the wu album.

  • Accurate
