RZA Talks Raekwon, Meth & Ghost Album

Posted By on October 20, 2009

    RZA, the long-time Wu-Tang Clan member, recently gave his reaction to the news that fellow Wu-Tang members Raekwon, Method Man and Ghostface Killah might possibly create a joint album, saying he fully supports the movement even saying it's overdue. "I think it's a great idea," RZA said. "I was pushing that idea to them years ago. Back in the day, we was gonna have a branch called 'The Brothers From the Grain' that was kinda those guys right there. I'm gonna see Meth tonight in the studio to see if I could add on something to that project. Add some depth to it. They are three of the most prolific voices in Wu-Tang…We're at a period of life, if anybody from Wu-Tang needs me, I'm there for them. Everybody has grown and matured to where we don't need each other."

    In related news, Reakwon recently described his problems with not being a member of the record label. "Right now, I run my own record company," Raekwon said in an interview. "I'm my own Def Jam. So for me to sit here and look at what we're gonna do to help they business, they company? It's like, it has to be done correctly… Everything is just word of mouth. People just excited about it and it put me in a situation like, 'Okay, these are my brothers. These are the dudes I came up in the game with.' I could never tell 'em no. Def Jam? That's they home, so I kinda see why they wanna do it there, that's who helps them make their money, Def Jam. Def Jam don't help me make my money. But at the end of the day, I can't take nothing away from Def Jam, because they been supporting Wu-Tang in one way or another. Whether they had Ghostface or Method Man, they helped all of our careers at some point… If it was my idea, I would want to do it an independent way because we would be owners of the album."
