The head of Wu-Tang Clan, RZA recently spoke on Drake‘s “Wu-Tang Forever” track off his latest album “Nothing Was The Same“.
RZA explained how he personally cleared the sample for Drake and didn’t charge him a dime.
“I appreciate it. He sent me [the] song because they couldn’t clear the sample. So I did it myself, personally, for free. Free of charge. Because to me, that’s what we meant when we said Wu-Tang is forever. We didn’t think we were going to live forever. We meant that the energy of what we do would spread on in culture, generation by generation. And by Drake absorbing it and having that influence in his life and having it be a part of him, it proves what I’m saying. And I’m really proud that he chose that rap.” (Rolling Stone)
