RZA And Raekwon Explain How They Kissed And Made Up

RZA Raekwon

There were two big pieces of Wu Tang news this week. The first is that the Staten Island collective is going to release their album A Better Tomorrow as a limited edition speaker in November, before it drops more traditionally on December 2. The second is that Raekwon, the group's prodigal son, would be featured on the record.

In interviews with MTV, the RZA and Raekwon discus how they squashed their beef -- the Chef had said he was "on strike" because he didn't agree with RZA's direction -- and got back together for the sake of Wu nation.

"We did have a hard time seeing eye-to-eye,” group leader RZA conceded. "And it was more like two strong generals not coming to the table. “I got off my high horse and I said, I’m gonna come to your studio. I brought him the outline of the album, with songs done, and some energy of where we at. Him and Ghostface were there. Me, GZA and Masta Killa. And then they started playing some chess while me and Raekwon had a meeting and I played the structure of the album. I think, that day, he understood the vision."

"To the world, it’s always looking like me and RZA going at it,” Raekwon said. "But it’s bigger than me and RZA. It’s the organization that, every now and then, you go through turbulence, because of what’s going on in the house of Wu. I’m protective of the brand, and I always want us to be feeling good about everything that we do and give to the world."

Big news and good news. But big enough for you to plop down 80 bucks for one those A Better Tomorrow limited edition album/speakers?
