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.
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.
