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

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."

And although he would love to welcome his old pal back into the fold, Rza fears the star may miss out on what Wu-Tang have been promoting as the band's last project - although the topic would have to be carefully discussed with all the other members, including Method Man, Gza and Ghostface Killah.

Rza tells the Associated Press, "That's something that I would take a vote on with the rest of the crew. I'm not a dictator about that. Raekwon is a valuable energy to the Wu-Tang, his voice, his lyrics, his approach. Rae is a master lyricist."
