Raekwon Speaks Out Against New Wu-Tang Clan Single and Album
On Tuesday, Wu-Tang Clan dropped their long-awaited first single for upcoming album A Better Tomorrow, but since that point, members were interviewed in Grantland, including Raekwon – who allegedly hasn’t been involved in the recording process, according to statements from RZA.
Raekwon spoke about this stance, giving two reasons for his lack of involvement. For one, the rapper claims RZA doesn’t need to be directing the entire process. He said, per Pitchfork: “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. His plan was to do a more humble album. We was like, Nah. You can’t do that with the hardest group in the game.”
But that’s not all. Raekwon claims that no one in the group can agree on the direction of the release. He told Grantland: “It’s like getting the United Nations to all agree on one f-cking thing…Now, here it is, the 20-year anniversary that’s so decoratedly respected that we might not even be on time for this sh-t.”
Although a promo single “Family Reunion” came out over the summer, “Keep Watch” is Wu-Tang’s official comeback. The track, produced by DJ Mathematics, features Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, and GZA.
What’s your perspective on A Better Tomorrow? Will it really arrive “soon,” as the group has been saying?
