For the last several months, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah have been airing out the Wu-tang Clan’s dirty laundry in regards to the making of the group’s new album, “8 Diagrams”. Ghostface accused RZA of being funny with the money and Rae is disappointed in the musical direction of the album which was also headed by RZA. Method Man has finally spoken out and admitted that members had issues when the album was being created.
"When niggas went in to do the album, it was little discrepancies here and there," Meth told MTV News. "Everybody talking and shit. Everybody talking at RZA and not to him. Him being who he is and where he came from, of course he’s goanna poke his chest out. And it’s gonna be a standoff. [8 Diagrams] is the results of it right here. I don’t think anybody is listening to anybody. What I did as a constant, I spit on what I was required to spit on. I’m not trying to throw no monkey wrench in anything. I strived to make the album sound like an album."
Raekwon still stands by his assertion that this isn’t the best work from the Wu, but will still promote the album and support it. But he still has plans on releasing a response to this album called “Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang” without any involvement from RZA.
"That’s how I feel right now," Rae also told MTV News. "It’s coming and it’s gonna be a lesson learned. That’s a lesson to bust the Abbott’s (aka RZA) ass and let him know what we do. At the end of the day, if nobody don’t do nothing, Chef’s gonna show and prove. You [can only] hold in but so much, my dude."
