The drama going on with the Wu-Tang Clan is real. After original member, Raekwon says that he is not on the up-coming Wu-Tang album and that the RZA is the reason for the strife.

The RZA shot back at Rae’s accusations. He told Hot 97, “When you form Voltron, you need every piece. We need [Raekwon] there. I want him there. I ask him over and over to be there. Let’s just come together.”

That was Monday. As we stand here on Thursday, the RZA is singing another tune.

In an interview with SI Now, RZA has laid down an ultimatum: If Raekwon doesn’t come on board within the next 30 days, the new Wu-Tang album won’t come out.

RZA told host Maggie Gray that A Better Tomorrow is slated to come out in July and that as things stand currently he’ll have to decide whether to shelve the album or release it without Raekwon. Because RZA can’t imagine releasing a Wu-Tang album without every living member, he said the more likely scenario is that the record will never see the light of day. He did say he believes he and Rae will work things out, but given the trajectory of this conflict so far, that seems like wishful thinking.
