LINK: RZA & MTV Talk 8 Diagrams
After less-than-happy comments from Raekwon and Ghostface about the way RZA is running the Wu, RZA spoke to MTV about the making of the new album, 8 Diagrams, and the relationships within the Wu:
"Over the years some of us have grown in doubt, or maybe some of us have grown creatively in different directions," he said. "But I will say that when we do come together, a lot of things just seem to evaporate. When we get on the stage together, we can have a problem 10 minutes before we get onstage. But once we're onstage, we feel like everything evaporates."
"I was so aggressive and so unfriendly to people at one point, and now I feel like I'm good," he said. "I can sit here, I can talk to people, I can shake hands. I feel like I'm a mature man. I think it's important for me and my crew. It's not all about making music to punch people in their face. [I want to be] making music to inspire people to stop punching each other in the face."
