Raekwon recently announced that he plans on being featured on Drake’s “Wu-Tang Forever” remix.
“I ain’t get a chance to bust my joint off yet, but I talked to Drake and we’re gonna get to it,” Raekwon said in an interview with MTV. “It just was like, we was on the road. Things was happening so quick. Some brothers were able to go in there and smash out, and unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get there yet, but it’s gonna happen though.”
Raekwon also addressed his stance on Drake’s song title, which has been criticized by some, including Inspectah Deck, because the song is not a tribute to the group despite being named after the Clan’s acclaimed 1997 double-album, Wu-Tang Forever.
“At the end of the day, regardless of what, we were mentioned in a great way,” Raekwon said. “He named the title of his song after brothers, so however you did it, at the end of the day, it’s still love. It’s still respect there. I still thought the record was a great record, regardless of what. It ain’t nothin’ rude about the record, nothin’ disrespectful. It’s all love. Hey, I’m for it.”
