That long-awaited Wu-Tang Clan reunion project is finally upon us, sort of. RZA, the de facto leader of the Clan (meaning that when they form like Voltron, he's the head), says that A Better Tomorrow is six weeks away from being completed.
RZA seems to attribute the hold-up to just being older and having more responsibilities.
"When you're a young man, you're hustling and you've got 12 hours a day to dedicate to music. It might be more than that," the rapper told the AP. "The energy that's important is constantly pouring out. But when you've got to go seek for the energy, it becomes a little more difficult. Wu-Tang is forever, I'll never take back that statement. But we haven't recorded a lot of studio albums. This is the first album we've recorded in seven years, actually. And we can't wait seven years for another album."
Previously, RZA called out Raekwon for holding up the album's production and it appears that all the setbacks will leave us without any new Wu in 2013.
