RZA talks, we listen.
That’s been the trend for 20 years, as true today as it was then. In an interview with the Hot 97 Morning Show, the Wu-Tang mastermind discusses everything: his upcoming movie Brick Mansions,, work ethic, turning aggression into creative energy.
And, of course, Raekwon’s “strike” from upcoming Wu projects.
RZA: What we’re not doing though, as brothers and as business brothers, is [spending] time together. So I gotta read about he feel, he’s gotta read about how I feel.
Peter Rosenberg: Why can’t you guys get together? Why can’t that happen?
RZA: If I had the answer to that question…
Rosenberg: You wouldn’t have this problem in the first place.
As Hip-Hop fans, the disconnect between the two Wu-Tang mainstays is akin to watching two close, personal family members fight. We all want everything in Wu-Land to be happy and productive. And based on what the RZA is saying, he’s on the same boat, blaming a lack of communication as the wedge nestled between the two.
The entire video is 40 minutes long, but the trio starts talking about Wu-relations around the 16-minute mark.
