Raekwon waxed on about the highly anticipated upcoming Wu-Tang Clan reunion project at the launch event for Gig-It.

The Staten Island legend gave his thoughts on the highly anticipated Wu-Tang album, and said that while the members of the Clan are ready and willing to record, the business side of the project needs to be handled correctly.

He also revealed that his next solo project F.I.L.A. (Fly Luxurious International Art) will drop this September.

On ‘the Business’ of the Wu-Tang Clan, Raekwon The Chef said: “Yeah, [A Better Tomorrow] is supposed to come out. There’s a lot of great elements that could be brought to the table, but from my perspective, The Business has got to be done right.”

C.R.E.A.M. is the Wu-Tang family motto, Raekwon said: “Everybody’s got agents, and as Wu-Tang being that big legacy, it’s also got to make sense business-wise. We’re a franchise; we made these companies millions and millions of dollars, and I feel like at the end of the day, we’re all entitled to our earnings. More importantly, we’re entitled to the respect of doing great business and carrying out our legacy out right.

Raekwon celebrates 20 years in the rap game and releases F.I.L.A. (Fly Luxurious International Art) album in September.
