Everything seemed to be going very well for Wu-Tang Clan recently. They are gearing up to drop their new album, A Better Tomorrow, and sent shock waves through the industry when they announced they were only going to be selling one copy of The Wu-Once Upon a Time In Shaolin, which is a secret album that features 31-tracks.

However, Raekwon recently talked to Rolling Stone and voiced many frustrations with RZA over the creative direction of the group and album. During the interview he went on to say that he hates the new Wu record, "Keep Watch," and that he is basically 'on strike' from the group because he and RZA can't see eye to eye.

"I hate it. I hate it. I don’t hate shit, but I hate that fuckin’ record. It ain’t the gunpowder that my brother is spitting; it’s the production. And I ain’t shitting on the producer because he’s one of our soldiers," Raekwon said in the interview. "But if it ain’t where it need to be… It’s 20 years later. We talkin 'bout a whole new generation is sitting here representin' and making fiery shit and you telling me that we comin out with some mediocre shit? That ain’t part of our plan."
