Looks like trouble keeps following the Wu. First, Method Man slammed the release plan for their album, The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin (the plan included making one copy of the album, which the buyer would only be able to release to the public 88 years later), calling it “stupid.” Now, Raekwon has spoken out on the 20th anniversary album A Better Tomorrow:

“That album felt kinda bored. And that’s not just my opinion. The music was just too soft. Too humble. I felt like the album could have been better,” Raekwon said in a recent interview with NME.

He also stated:

“I voiced my opinion, like, ‘Yo, let’s give them some real shit!’ The album was driven more to [producer and fellow founding member] RZA’s expectations. He was coming from one way, we was wanting to try something new.”

In the interview he also said he will not be touring with Wu-Tang this year, but made sure to clarify that his issue is with management and not the group:

I didn’t know shit about the tour. They just assume I’m good to be there and put it all together, but by then I got obligations, a fucking schedule,” Raekwon said. “It’s frustrating, ‘cos I’d love to be there.” 

Here’s to hoping things get better with the Wu.
