RZA talks about Wu-Tang troubles, tour, album

RZA was recently interviewed by MTV about the future prospects of the Wu-Tang Clan now that their tour is almost done, and RZA let fly with a lot of juicy quotes.


"I stopped doing business with Raekwon," RZA told us recently. "I said, 'We can be brothers, but we can't do business,' because he was doubting my business judgment. You doing business, you gotta have that faith. It takes faith to do that business. Me and Ghost is family, so I don't like to speak on that situation, but he has people around him that's deluded. They make him believe something that's not real. I said this to Ghostface last week on the bus and said to U-God, 'If you try to sue me for $100,000 ... I don't owe you sh--.' Why would you say something like that? You let your lawyer gas you. I said to Ghost, 'How the f--- I owe you $2 million, God?'

"Sh-- is crazy, G. All that sh-- is really delusion," the Clan's head continued. "I got nothing but love for the Gods. We got people in our ears. I got people in my ear that said, 'Don't do the tour. You got this, you got that, you don't need that Wu-Tang sh--.' "

 RZA also talked about the potential for the group to do another album:

"We're out here busting our brains and having fun. Conversations have been sparking on the bus about potentially doing some more music. It's a good thing. Once we're talking, it's a dialogue going. Once we start building, trust me, sh-- gets better for us. Sh-- gets better for everybody around us. You're dealing with scientists. We'll see if brothers get on the same wavelength. As far as us doing music together, I'm sure the other brothers are at the level I'm at — I don't care if only 10 n---as hear it now. It's medicine. That's something that I started — my style of hip-hop when I came in the game. I didn't care how people got it. I felt like MC Hammer and Young MC and all them was selling millions of records, and they was just keeping people blind. I said if 1 million people buy Wu-Tang, it's better than better than 20 million people buying [MC Hammer's] record. That's 1 million more people waking up to the light of life."

 I don't think RZA has been this open about the dealings of Wu-Tang in quite some time, and the interview is pretty great. RZA also said that Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II should be out in March, which as Guns N' Roses fans can tell you, certainly means it won't be out then. [MTV]

Money issues seem like it'll cause Wu-Tang to never get back the way they once were.

This quote is great too:
"I said if 1 million people buy Wu-Tang, it's better than better than 20 million people buying [MC Hammer's] record. That's 1 million more people waking up to the light of life."

It's been said before, but Wu-Tang right now is more about sustaining its own mythology than it is about pushing the musical envelope.

Yeah Daba, I think Masta Killa and U-God have convinced themselves that they should be paid millions for each tour, while Ghostface, an MVP of the group, feels the same. Cash Rules Everything Around Wu-Tang.

Rza is a goon. Hes full of himself. Only reason people hate him now is cuz hes tryin to rip his brothers off. Hes the one "MC Hammering" his brothers.


that is straight bull! rza has done his part and stil doing his thing. he is making money on his own. Evryone had/has their chance. the RZa made wu tang what it is. its his style of making music that made Wutang. since he produces and does work ...some of the other members want a piece of his pie. its like wehn Wutang tours...if the Rza aint there....Mathematics is good but he isnt the Voltron Head. with out Rza is like Eminem without Dre....
