In the continuing saga of RZA vs. Raekwon, the former has given the latter an ultimatum: get on board with Wu-Tang Clan’s new album, or said album is not coming out.
The key ingredient to any successful relationship is communication, something the Wu-Tang Clan is learning the hard way.
All is not well in house of the Wu-Tang Clan, with one of its most prominent members going “on strike” and lashing out at the hip-hop group’s leader, RZA.
By no means should Raekwon fans be decrying the lack of new material right now; Wu-Tang Clan is about to release new material, after all. But the rapper has his own solo material to dispense too, including new track “The Living Room.”
Everything is not right with the Wu.
“To us, [the album] felt like a summer in New York: the johnny pump, the dollar slices of pizza, the Italian ices. There’s nothing that tastes, looks, feels, smells like a New York summer anymore.”
Raekwon leaves the track untouched for the most part, aside from adding a few of his own verses that sort of counteract Lorde’s original critiques of excessively indulgent musicians.
If Raekwon has his way, the respected MC’s third installment of his acclaimed Only Built 4 Cuban Linx series will feature one of hip-hop’s biggest visionaries–Kaye West.
