RZA Gave Drake the “Wu-Tang Forever” Sample for Free

This should put the whole debate over whether this track is an authentic Wu-Tang tribute to rest.  The Abbot himself weighed in on the issue in an interview with Rolling Stone:

I appreciate it. He sent me song because they couldn’t clear the sample. So I did it myself, personally, for free. Free of charge. Because to me, that’s what we meant when we said Wu-Tang is forever. We didn’t think we were going to live forever. We meant that the energy of what we do would spread on in culture, generation by generation. And by Drake absorbing it and having that influence in his life and having it be a part of him, it proves what I’m saying. And I’m really proud that he chose that rap.
