In an interview with MTV’s “RapFix Live,” Rae admitted that, at times, he can be the most difficult Wu member to deal with.
“The bottom line is: Of course I want to see a Wu-Tang reunion. Of course. Who wouldn’t?” he said. “I just want everything to be right, the business. When we made a lot of our great music, it was because we were in harmony. You cannot put guys together if there is no harmony, and on top of it, we’re doing business. As a man with children, I have to always look at that. It’s bigger than sometimes just the thought of it, the fact of it, it just gotta make sense.”
Raekwon continued, saying that despite any differences he and RZA may have had, he was indebted to the Abbot. “What RZA did for my life and my career, I can never repay him, but more importantly, I know what I’ve done: I’ve built my bones. I’m on over like two (thousand) or 3,000 records,” he explained. “I’ve created a brand for Raekwon, too. So, my thing is: I always just want to be fair about the business.”
“I’m not saying anything bad about RZA, but we’ve had problems in the past. That’s with any crew; every crew go through this, every artist, but then, hey, enough is enough. It’s like you just want things to be right and be fair,” he explained. “We got people running around with tattoos on their neck, their head, their face, their feet, their arms, they naming their babies after us,” he said of the Wu’s impact. “They’re doing all of this and all of that, and when it’s time to do business, we’re grumpy? That’s not fair to everybody.”
