For Wu-Tang's next project, the entire Clan won't be present. RZA confirmed to VladTV that Raekwon will be missing in action on the group's next album A Better Tomorrow.
"I haven’t had a chance to really talk to him about why not. All I see is the press going back and forth," he said. "But I would say that maybe creatively we on different paths. I’m creatively different than I was in the ‘90s."
The Chef has expressed his disappointment with the Wu in the past. He told Grantland last month, "I would be the first one to say that we cannot leave everything in RZA’s hand 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. 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.”
However, Wu Stans, have no fear. Rae will mos def be on the one-off LP, The Wu - Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which has already bagged a $5 million bid.
