RZA on Raekwon’s Strike: ‘I Want Him There And We Need Him There

rza-raekwon

The (Wu) saga continues. In what may be described as a feud but is more likely a familial disagreement, RZA referenced the latest barb between The Abbott and Raekwon. The pair are having disagreements over the Clan next project. Last week, the Chef explained he’s on strike.

“I’m in a limbo situation,” he told Rolling Stone. “I am on strike. It ain’t the fact that I don’t want to be there. Because of course I want to be there. But if we’re there, we gotta do the best everything. We gotta work 10 times harder, because that’s what I’m signing in for. I’m not about listening to somebody that’s not an artist telling me what the fuck they think is hot.”

RZA told Hot 97 today, though, there has been a lack of communication and when the two finally spoke after a six-month silent period, an older interview the RZA did appeared and the confusion created tension.

“I want him there and we need him there,” RZA pleaded, beginning near the 15:00 minute mark.
