Raekwon Reveals Expectations For Wu-Tang Clan Reunion

Raekwon says his daughter graduating from high school is "Like 100 albums dropping in one day."

After saying in April that he was on strike from the Wu-Tang Clan and frustrated over the group's “Keep Watch” single, Raekwon now says he is excited for the group’s forthcoming A Better Tomorrow album.

“I’m happy,” Raekwon says during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. "I love the Wu-Tang fans. I love my crew. But it’s business. When you got babies, nothing don’t count unless it makes sense for them.”

The rapper adds that age is catching up to the group, so for him, it’s now or never to make a last great album.

“At the end of the day,” he says, "I just still know that you’re only as good as your last swing."

In May, the group posted on its website that Raekwon and RZA reached a truce and that Raekwon would go to the studio to record his verses for A Better Tomorrow.

Despite all the hype surrounding Wu-Tang, Raekwon says that his greatest accomplishment of 2014 is that his daughter graduating high school. 

“To see my seeds do that,” he says, "that’s like 100 albums dropping in one day for me."

Raekwon says he is especially proud of her because he dropped out of twelfth grade. He promised to buy her a car once she graduates.

      with out Raekwon WuTang would be lame, he's like the main spiter of the group, he got plenty of punchlines, his flow is just complex but he got bars for days yo, definitely one of the top spiters in hiphop along side Nas, AZ, Mega, MfDoom, Ect

    Rae is so cheap he's buying his daughter a used Pinto.

      Yeah, Chef is made cheap, off course why would he buy his daughter the latest Mercedes? Why would he teach her the value of working hard and get what you want on your own? Dumb fuck, that is the reason you got Kneegrow confused fuckers like Kanye, Chris Brown and the likes.
