Raekwon speaks on the possibility of a Wu-Tang reunion, as well as his relationship with RZA.
Raekwon released his Lost Jewlry mixtape earlier this year, and while the legend continues to pump out solo material, fans are still anticipating another release from Wu-Tang. Rae, who had previously spoken of the beef withing the group, and said his Wu brothers were not taking the possibility of a reunion seriously, shared a few more details on what is going on with the Clan.
"The bottom line is: Of course I want to see a Wu-Tang reunion. Of course. Who wouldn't?" he said. "I just want everything to be right, the business. When we made a lot of our great music, it was because we were in harmony. You cannot put guys together if there is no harmony, and on top of it, we're doing business. As a man with children, I have to always look at that. It's bigger than sometimes just the thought of it, the fact of it, it just gotta make sense."
Rae spoke at length about his relationship with game changer, the RZA. "What RZA did for my life and my career, I can never repay him, but more importantly, I know what I've done: I've built my bones. I'm on over like two (thousand) or 3,000 records," he explained. "I've created a brand for Raekwon, too. So, my thing is: I always just want to be fair about the business."
"I'm not saying anything bad about RZA, but we've had problems in the past. That's with any crew; every crew go through this, every artist, but then, hey, enough is enough. It's like you just want things to be right and be fair," he said. "We got people running around with tattoos on their neck, their head, their face, their feet, their arms, they naming their babies after us," he said of obsessive Wu-fandom. "They're doing all of this and all of that, and when it's time to do business, we're grumpy? That's not fair to everybody."
