Inspectah Deck has long been one of the more lyrical members of Wu-Tang Clan and also, one that has been more dependent on the success of the Wu brand compared to some of the other members.
Recently sitting down with Vlad TV, The Rebel INS explained that a lot of the problem with Wu-Tang right now is how they are being managed and says that there needs to be more cohesion when business decisions are made.
“We’re lost business structure-wise,” he said when asked about Wu-Tang Clan’s recent problems. “When you look at other successful entities the business platform that they use, whether it’s let’s get a tour manager that nobody knows so that there’s no personal relationships in between so I don’t have to feel a way for knocking on your door or banging on your shit in the morning telling you to get up. Simple things bro, ’cause it frustrates me because I feel like if we did have certain structures, an artist like me who doesn’t have a hit single on the airwaves, would still be able to capitalize and take advantage of the success of the whole. That’s what a good management or business structure is going to do.”
Deck also compared their situation to one of a good basketball team with lack-luster coaching but clarifies by saying the coaching hasn’t always been poor.
“We’ve got a good team with a bad coach,” he said. “Or a good team with a good coach, who’s just coaching bad right now… I’m not going to discredit my people and act like they haven’t done anything or been instrumental to us getting to this level but at this level, you’re uniform got to be nice, man.”
Inspectah Deck also says he supports the success of Method Man and RZA when it comes to acting and directing but relayed that their absence has made it a little harder on other members still sticking to the musical aspect of their careers.
