GZA added the caption, "Due to circumstances beyond our control and a narrow window to finish Dark Matter, with a very rare collaborator, I regret to inform my fans that I must cancel these upcoming European dates. I'll be back next Spring with brand new material."

Rza Fears Raekwon May Miss Out On Last Wu-tang Clan Album


Wu Tang Clan RZA Raekwon GZA

Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA is still holding out hope that his bandmate Raekwon will reach out and offer up some verses for the group's final album before the project is completed and handed over to label bosses.

Earlier this month (Nov13), producer/rapper Rza revealed the Ice Cream hitmaker was the only one who had yet to contribute to A Better Tomorrow, the hip-hop collective's first album in six years, which he had hoped to release by the end of the year (13) to mark 20 years since their classic debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

Rza now admits the situation with Raekwon still hasn't changed, but he is eager to discuss any problems with him so they can resolve the issue: "He hasn't turned in his verses yet. I don't know if he's still trying to find the vibe of the music. We have to talk about it before it becomes too late. But he hasn't come to the table yet."

Wu-Tang Clan producer RZA has blamed bandmate Raekwon for delaying progress on a new 20th anniversary album after failing to show up for studio sessions.

The Gravel Pit hitmakers have been working on the rap collective's first album in six years, A Better Tomorrow, in the hopes of releasing it by the end of the year (13) to mark the two decades since their classic debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

However, group leader Rza admits some members have been less than receptive about reuniting to record new music - and he's named and shamed Raekwon for being one of those not putting in the effort.

Wu-Tang Clan star GZA is teaming up with educators in New York to help teach inner city kids by incorporating rap music into their lesson plans.

Columbia University professor Christopher Emdin recently met with the star to discuss how to get African-American and Latino students more engaged in the classroom, and together they developed a pilot programme that will use hip-hop to teach science in 10 Big Apple public schools.

Beginning in January (13), Emdin and his graduate students will conduct weekly alternative courses, where pupils will write rhymes instead of papers and even freestyle with their peers about the subject.

Gza, who has long been eating an all-green diet, reveals he used to poke fun at Method Man for feasting on steaks, but the All I Need hitmaker has since decided to follow in his Wu-Tang Clan bandmate's footsteps and become a veggie.

The group co-founder tells RedBullUsa.com, "I used to tease Meth all the time about him eating steaks, use to tell him he was 'Eatin' a pig p**sy T-bone'. He hated that s**t, but he just recently came up to me and said both he and Redman are vegetarians now."
