RZA of Wu Tang Clan has said that production of the hip-hop group's new album has been delayed by Raekwon's absence from the recording studio.

The group, who recently celebrated 20 years since the release of debut album 'Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)', are working on a new album which is loosely scheduled for a 2013 release. Earlier this year one new song, 'Family Reunion', was taken from the album though there is no official release date for the record as yet.

Explaining how the recording process has been going, RZA told Grantland that some members of the group have made more of an effort in the studio than others, claiming Raekwon "hasn’t shown up at all". "You know, I give Cappadonna credit, he’s been really on it. U-God has been present. Masta Killa be representing. Inspectah Deck has been somewhat present. Ghost has been, you know, 20 percent present," he said.

The producer and Wu-Tang leader continued: "When you look at somebody like Masta Killa and U-God, they seem to have that original hunger to complete the legacy. I respect that everybody [is] busy with they own lives. I started with a plan that I thought would work. Now maybe my plan's not working."

Earlier this year it was revealed that GZA will definitely not be appearing in the forthcoming Ol' Dirty Bastard biopic, Dirty White Boy. The film is set to star Michael K Williams – who played Omar Little in The Wire – as the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, who passed away in 2004 of a drugs overdose. Williams has said that the people working on the film "have no desire to cast any actors as the Wu-Tang."
