After causing a little uproar post releasing his “Wu-Tang Forever’ track, Drake doesn’t seem to be the only one still waiting on the remix to be finished. In a couple of recent interviews by the clan’s very own RZA, he discusses what the hold up is with finishing the track.
“So I’ve been reaching out to all the Wu-Tang brothers, and all of us came to the table so far, Method Man came and did a lot of verses, Inspectah Deck, myself, but Raekwon is the last one to come to put his verses on. In the article I was like, ‘yo, Raekwon, my brother, we need you, come on up here, drop your verses, and let’s make this one final album for the fans.’
Raekwon responded to RZA’s interview via Twitter:

After weeks of mixed reviews, in a recent interview with MTV, Raekwon weighs in on the hold up with the remix, as well as his opinion about the song as a whole. He discussed how there was ‘no disrespect’ with Drake’s tribute to him & his clan, with whom recently commemorated the 20th anniversary of Wu Tang Clan’s debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
“At the end of the day, regardless of what we were mentioned in a great way,” he said. “[Drake] named the title of his song after brothers, so however you did it, at the end of the day, it’s still love, it’s still respect there. I still thought the record was a great record, regardless of what. It ain’t nothin’ rude about the record, nothin’ disrespectful, it’s all love.”
He also touched on laying down his verse when he was available: “I ain’t get a chance to bust my joint off yet, but I talked to Drake and we’re gonna get to it”.
I don’t know about you, but i’m still anxiously waiting on the remix…. Wu-Tang Forever.
