Wu Tang Clan are to appear on a remix of 'Wu-Tang Forever', a song from Drake's forthcoming album which samples the rap collective's track 'It's Yourz'.

One Wu-Tang Clan member, Inspectah Deck, has taken issue with the title of Drake's song, posting on Twitter: "After listening to the @Drake song, I agree with u... It is in no form a tribute to WU and SHOULD NOT wear the title Wutang Forever!" However, this apparently has not stopped the band endorsing the track with their own guest verses.

Another Wu-Tang member, U-God, told Vibe: "They wanted us to remix it and get on there [so] you gon' probably hear another one with us on it. Meth did his verse - we all did our verses. I wrote my rhyme in probably 15, 20 minutes. We were moving so fast we only had about four hours of studio time. If I had some time to really sit down and get juicy with it, I probably could've got juicier with it. But I still do a nice one, I still do a real banger."

Meanwhile, another track from Drake's forthcoming album 'Nothing Was The Same', due for release on September 24, has leaked. Listen to 'Pound Cake/Paris Morton 2' featuring Jay-Z below.

In addition to Jay Z, 'Nothing Was The Same' will feature guest appearances from Drake's father Dennis Graham, James Blake, Detail and Sampha, who contributes to a track called 'Too Much', which Drake unveiled during a US TV appearance on Friday (September 13). The album is Drake's third full-length effort following 2010's 'Thank Me Later' and 2011's 'Take Care'.
