Hip-Hop artists confirm they are working together on 'A Better Tomorrow'
RZA and Raekwon have ended their feud and will finish work on new Wu Tang Clan album ‘A Better Tomorrow’, it has been confirmed.
The pair’s relationship has deteriorated throughout 2014 with Raekwon stating that he thinks that Wu-Tang Clan would benefit from a change of direction, away from RZA’s guidance.
RZA responded, stating earlier this year that he does not speak to his colleague and believes they are currently on “different creative paths” to one another.
However, that appears to have now changed with a post on the official Wu Tang Clan website stating that the pair have re-entered the studio together. The message, posted on May 12, reads: “Raekwon and Rza truce : Raekwon scheduled to hit studio to complete verses for album : ‘A Better Tomorrow.’ Details coming!
RZA is currently overseeing two albums from the group, ‘The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’ and ‘A Better Tomorrow’, the former being limited to just one copy which will be exhibited and later sold to the highest bidder. It was reported last week that Cher has recorded vocals for the record.
RZA previously revealed that the group have already been offered $5million (£3,006,070) for ‘The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’.
The band plan to take the album on a “tour” of museums, galleries and festivals, where they will charge between $30-$50 (£18 to £30) to view and listen to the album. The listening sessions will take place behind heavy security and will use headphones provided by the venue, to prevent the album leaking.
