    Rae is the bummiest dude in Hip Hop. But he’s a legend so he can get away with it. Jim Jones cannot. He’s like RA The Rugged Man’s bum uncle.

  12. G7 Says:

    lol @ Rae and everybody else in the Clan not feelin’ the album. If they don’t believe in the product, why should we?

    And Rae is right, Rza needs to chill with the orchestra beats. That orchestra sound, that Just Blaze type shit is overrated.

    … for years now, nobody in or out of the clan has anything good to say about RZA … it’s a sad to hear UGod, Cappadonna, Ghostface, Rae, Y-Kim, Fat Joe, O.D.B. etc, all bad-mouth RZA for his shady financial dealings, selfishness, cocaine habits, wack rapping and declining production skills … and its even sadder that it seems to be true, because all the stories are the same …

    “… RZA ! … pay me my fucking money !! …” (c) Y-Kim …

    SRC and Steve Rifkind are on RZAs johnson though.. I dont even think the clan can use the name “Wu” with out RZA’s presence. RZA probably be having backroom meetings without the rest of these dudes.

    Fuck that dipset bitch miss info.

  26. G7 Says:

    @ land

    the funny thing is that most wu fans, myself included are eager for full-Rza produced albums, but maybe over the years the Clan wasn’t even checking for him like that. I would have never known.

  42. Mark Twain Fame Says:

    quick question guys…now when I’m using zshare, how the hell do I upload a whole album?…do I just compress the album into a zip file and then upload it on zshare?…help a dude out.

  43. Busta Cracka The English Smacka Says:

    *dap Dances into the room*

    What up Nah right??

    Fuck i cant watch this coz i’m in work…

    But from what i can take from the comments is that Rae is bad mouthing(pause) Rza and the album???

    Maybe Rae should work on his rhymes coz the stuff i’ve heard lately sound like he half asleep…

    When i first heard the Wu were doing a new album i was like i hope Rza does the whole album, but after the last couple of Wu tracks it might not be a bad thing to have other producers on this shit…

    Someone call premo and tell him hip hop needs him for this album..

    every sentence shalla raekwon has ever said in his life is a quotable.

    what up cocolos!

  46. RIGZ Says:

    LOL @ Rae’s pimp analogy at the end of the first clip…

    “You aint paying me right…..AND you not keeping me fresh…!”

    Wuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrd (c) Mr. Giles

    The Ruler-Zig-Zag-Zig-Allah lost.

    **Now waiting foe Shaolin Vs Wu Tang release date**

  47. How studip! Says:

    haha Rae talks bullshit….He said the business fucks up the crativity, …..That´s right, but, he only talks about the business side. To me sounds ,calling RZA a Hip Hop Hippie, that RZA is crative and Rae is stuck in his onedimensional rap world. Why his aftermaht album is not dropping? I think they deliver the beats he wants obviously for the Wu….I think it´s because he rhymes the same bullshit over and over again, there is nothing that people are not expecting …. The only one who had big records in the last years was RZa… so i think that he knows a lot more about what´s hot or not than rae!!!!! I think the new Wu album is a hot record even if it comes out as Instrumental LP ;-)

  48. dockevoc Says:

    Rae got a point, Rza should have stuck with that ol wutang sound…Cilvaringz should get some run on this wu album, his sound is just like the 95 wu sound and would have brought back the crown to where it rightly belongs – SHAOLIN

  49. Purpose Says:

    Who is going to buy this album after watching this…

  50. Vee Says:

    Interestingly enough, Outside of Cuban Links Rae has never put out a decent solo CD, period.

    And outside of Ghostface*, you can more or less see what happen to the direction of the clan’s solo recording careers. Method Man has more or less become a bitter old school mc taking shots at the industry, including (understandably) BET. Instead of carving their own niche within a fragmented and failing music industry the members careers appear to be stifled and dictated by the whims, rules and regulation of the snail-mail music business. However the same person that they Raekwon claims to be a hip-hop hippy has numerous successful ventures outside of the hip hop music. *I did like Masta Killa’s solo efforts, well some of the songs.

    If one of his arguments is about bringing it back to that 95-Wu sound, I wonder why he didn’t follow his own advice with his 2 previous solo efforts. Note, Ghost 2nd CD was largely produced by Rza.

    As far as Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang. That sounds hot and all, but judging from the clan’s recent history . . . talk is talk. Ghost new solo CD is coming out a month prior to 8 Diagrams. In the span of the next 6 months, getting the clan minue -Rza to fully support and *tour a Shaolin vs Wu-Tang project doesn’t seem likely. Are they going to put it out through Loud? Or be smart and use Koch or maybe release it themselves creatively through some online venture. *There best bet to really make money off that project is to tour, just aske Black Thought of the Roots.

  51. Vee Says:

    . . . sorry, mad grammatical errors.

  52. Purpose Says:

    Yo, why is he flossing (literally) during the interview. hilarious

  53. KinGRex Says:

    Rae is one of the funniest dudes around…kills me….and good look on his part for keeping it 100 about RZA…..people have been talking about him for awhile now…keep it funky RAE

  54. Ron Says:

    Rae is a funny nigga( not ha ha funny either). Ok, it seems like RZA shady, he’s the only one on top of his business. (he’s probably the only one in that group with an agent,rapping producing, business ventures, scoring films). The rest of these dust heads don’t even have good accounting of the last 10 years of their career. Their only defense is (knowhaumsayin, shit ain’t right). They should have been doing “them”. He can’t even get OB4CL “2″ out. His other releases was trash. Real talk, most of the rap fans ain’t checkin for his style no more. The industry has moved on. He could keep it real and put out some shit his only fans left would like but them niggas don’t buy , they illegal download. The result is he’ll be just as broke. People not chakin for that old WU no more that was the nineties bruh. You are catalogue now. You mean you just realized in the 4th quarter this nigga RZA is cheating, get lost dummy.

  55. Mullah Says:

    After hearing “Gently Weeps”, I was skeptical. Although Rae & Ghost spit nice verses the Beatles interpolation just didn’t knock. I figured it’s only one song, Rza wants some crossover ca$h. After hearing Rae tell it how it really is I feel 8 Diagrams is doomed. I love WU but I just crossed that release date off my calender. Now I want to hear the Clan minus Rza album. Steve Rifkin need to put that out ASAP!

  56. Bronxbred Says:

    TROUBLE IN SHAOLIN!!!!!! I think this is the end of the Wu; these are not young, hungry, dudes living in the projects of Stapleton and Park Hill anymore. In the final analysis this is a gut check for the Clan, business is business…all the history in the world can’t pay a brothers bills or put food on the table. Great interview though, I respect the way Rae handled the questions, no bullshittin’, just honest, raw answers.

  57. spanish jay Says:

    another hard hitting investigative report

  58. Bob Loblaw Says:

    lololol @ “he like a hip hop hippy right now.”

  59. lazybrown Says:

    personally i blame russell crowe

    “Me and Russell jammed. He’s a better guitar player than me. I actually picked up a few tips from him. He’s so sincere with his lyrics.” Rza

    hahaahaa

    … i’d love to hear an Alchemist produced Wu album in the style of “return of the mac”
