Having released their “Keep Watch” track just yesterday as the first single off their 20th anniversary  A Better Tomorrow project, the Wu-Tang Clan members are now sharing their thoughts on the project’s creation and admitted difficulties in regards to getting everyone to work together on the same idea. Linking up with Grantland on a feature, the group members opened up on everything from the reveal of their album title to the “Family Reunion” single, and Raekwon shared his thoughts on the creative differences within the group:

I would be the first one to say that we cannot leave everything in RZA’s hand no more … He has done his job to the greatest of his ability when we were younger, but now every man plays an imperative role in this situation. His plan was to do a more humble album. We was like, Nah. You can’t do that with the hardest group in the game

It’s like getting the United Nations to all agree on one fucking thing … Italy ain’t having it. Japan is on some shit. You know what I mean? Now, here it is, the 20-year anniversary that’s so decoratedly respected that we might not even be on time for this shit.

For a full look at the feature head here.
