Raekwon Says He's "On Strike," Criticizes RZA

Posted by - 12:47 PM on 04/17/14
The odd, acrimonious situation in Wu-Tang Clan over their 20th anniversary album A Better Tomorrow continues to escalate. This time, Raekwon took long winded, angry shots at RZA over the situation in a Rolling Stone interview. He says he's "on strike" from Wu-Tang, and says RZA's "like being a coach and you won rings back in the day, but now your team is in ninth place. Itís time for a new fucking game plan." The interview is chock full of insight from Rae on a number of topics and is well worth the read.

Lot of Wu Tang news today.


What else?


Edit: just read the article and it makes me really fucking sad. There is no communication within the group.

Good read. Not sure what to think of A Better Tomorrow now. I personally love RZA's production, but if Rae(my favorite rapper) isn't happy with the work then maybe something's up...

Awful. Sucks to hear that there's more tension in the group and I'm so sad to hear about Andre feeling that way. I really hope he gets help. A quick search of his name brings up a bunch of articles, almost all of the headlines of which focused on the self-mutilation rather than the attempt, which... feels so disgustingly sensational and opportunistic. I don't know, maybe it's just too close to home for me, but it bothers me.

I had a post for it this morning and then was like "What the hell am I doing?" and decided I'd let you or someone else do it.

Just reeks of exploitation. And no way would people be civil or anything about it with the nature of the injuries. It would turn into a gross joke fest.

The comments on Gawker were bad enough, I don't even want to think about what they would be like here.
