RZA continues to celebrate 20 years of Wu Tang, with the crew having debuted their first album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) back in November 1993. While there were plans to release a 20th anniversary reunion album to commemorate the group’s success, very little information surrounding about project has been released. Last week RZA spoke up about what was causing the delay, calling out Raekwon and other Wu members for not being 100% dedicated to the project, and last night, during an appearance of the “Arsenio Hall Show,” RZA took time to address Raekwons’ response and further elaborate on the delay.
“I think when you do 20 years of music and your fans are still supporting you, before you close the chapter it’s good to do one more album,” he said. “I been reaching out to all the Wu-Tang brothers and all of us came to the table so far — Method Man came and did a lot of verses, Inspectah Deck, myself — but Raekwon is the last one to come to fit his verses on. So in the article I was like, Yo, Raekwon, my brother, we need you. Come on up here, drop your verses and let’s make this one final album for the fans… I know Raekwon’s gonna be there, he know I love him, and we got nothing but brotherly love for each other. But put some of the business to the side and let’s go make this music, yo.”
Wu Tang Forever? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
