The Wu-Tang Clan’s ’8 Diagrams’ Delayed

Oct 22nd, 2007 // 2 Comments

wutanglogo.jpgThe Wu-Tang Clan have pushed the release of 8 Diagrams back from Dec. 4 to Dec. 11 so as to avoid conflict with the release date of Ghostface’s The Big Dough Rehab. RZA on the latest delay: “We didn’t have him move, we moved … I think that shows the kind of bigger men we could be. Ghost is my brother, [I] love him to death. But we’re in this business, and it’s hard to kind of discern what’s right and what’s wrong. … BBut I will say that, when it comes to a Wu-Tang Clan album, I plan on making it a 60-, 90-day type of schedule. … It turned out to be a 200-day schedule … and I didn’t want to wait until next year [to put out 8 Diagrams].” [MTV]

    RZA being the first one to back down graciously strengthens my initial assumption, that Ghostface is just being a prima donna and acting like he’s more important than the rest of the group. Noone even knew Ghost was dropping an album this year until he suddenly announced that Wu Tang had infringed on his release date.

    Isn’t this how the Beatles finally broke up? Because Apple had unilaterally decided to release Let It Be the same day as Paul’s first solo album? Then as now, it’s more to do with the artist’s ego than any real financial concern. (I’m guessing that most 8 Diagrams purchasers will also be interested in Big Dough Rehab.)
