Raekwon Vs RZA Over Wu-Tang Clan Album
In an interview with Grantland, Raekwon says the group "cannot leave everything in RZA's hands no more." "He has done his job to the greatest of his ability when we were younger, but now every man plays an imperative role in this situation," Rae explained. "[RZA's] plan was to do a more humble album. We was like, 'Nah.' You can't do that with the hardest group in the game."
Last year, RZA spoke to Grantland about the making of A Better Tomorrow stating that Ghostface and specifically Raekwon were holding things up. "I feel like we have enough material on the album. I just need Raekwon to come onboard fully," RZA said. "I need some more energy from Ghost and GZA. If they give that energy, I will give us a great last album. If they don't give us the energy, I gotta figure out a plan B."
But in this new interview, Rae makes it clear, this was only RZA's opinion and the group has a lot of varying views on the project, which have made it hard to complete the record.
