Over the past few weeks, rumors have been circulating that the Wu-Tang Clan may release a final reunion album on the eve of the 20th anniversary of their seminal debut Enter the Wu-Tang: The 36 Chambers. Now, in a recent interview with Global Grind, Wu-Tang alum Raekwon speaks on the possibility of the Clan’s reunion.
The Chef expressed his doubts about the tentative reunion, saying that the Clan as a whole hasn’t taken the necessary steps to begin working on the project. He explained that it’s paramount that the crew approach the project with a more serious attitude to ensure that it is financially beneficial for all parties. Despite his trepidation, however, Rae said that he would be all in for a reunion project.
“We’ve been talking about it and it’s a lot of discussion about it, but it’s not consolidated yet,” he said. “We know as a group that 20 years in the business is something serious, so there was a couple of conversations going on about it…you know, everyone’s so nonchalant about shit, like they don’t know if it’s going to happen. For me, it’s like I don’t respect that because it should happen. It should happen in a way where it can help us from all the shit we’ve been through together.”
He continued, “We’ve made a lot of money, of course, and we’ve lost a lot of money, and it kinda put certain cats in situations where this can help [them] right now – at the end of the day, it can help all of use, but it can help the ones that really need to be helped and it can put us back where we need to be financially, back in the game as one of the iconic groups in the game, but it takes a lot of loyalty, it takes a lot of love, it takes a lot of respect. I want to see it happen, but more importantly, I want to see it done the right way.”
