RZA Too Much Of A Businessman To Consider Another Wu-Tang Album
“I wouldn’t want to get into a business relationship with the Wu-Tang Clan because it hurt my business, Universal Music’s business, the record business. It hurt a lot of people when they wouldn’t show up for music videos, for press. It (wastes) a lot of people’s money. A lot of people got fired — the guys don’t even know how many people got fired because of them.
“That’s just not good business, and I’m a businessman. I need to keep my name clean, so I can go anywhere in the world and do anything and people know there’s professionalism behind it.”
While we’ll undoubtedly see collaborations between the various members (RZA worked on Raekwon’s long-in-the-works sequel to Only Built For Cuban Linx…), and maybe most to all of them will reunite one member’s track someday, it does seem like the 8 Diagrams experience was unpleasant enough that there would be little impetus for the rappers to work together as a group. Have they ever thought about holding a Wu-Convention for all the Wu-nerds? They could even hold it at The Wu Convention Centre.
