One of the biggest questions in Hip Hop music is whether or not the Wu-Tang Clan will ever put out a sixth studio album. Raekwon recently sat down with Vlad TV and talked about the beef Wu-Tang has had in recent years explaining that it all goes back to the group's founding by RZA.
"My thing is, RZA assembled the team because he felt he had a relationship with all of us, and more importantly, everybody respected RZA for his craft and his passion for what he loved. Because even though we loved it as well as he loved it, he was in love with it. When you dealing with a cat like RZA who got family all over and relationships, RZA was a Staten Island nigga who lived everywhere. ... He pretty much knew everybody. But at the same time, the people that he knew probably wasn't fond of us at the same time neither because they didn't grow up with us."
Rae also spoke on U-God's lawsuit against Wu-Tang Corp.
"I looked at it like it was real. It was business, man. Don't take friendship and humbleness out of pocket because we're doing business. So at the end of the day, yeah, RZA was on the chopping board. A lot of niggas was like fuck that, I'ma deal with it this way. Other niggas could have felt like this or whatever. But more importantly, niggas got to the bottom of what it is they needed to get to. I didn't challenge that situation then because I'm looking at a friend and I'm looking at business. It's fucked up because at the end of the day, this is the man who helped me get out of the streets."
