In a recent interview, the GZA discussed the behind the scenes relationship of the Wu-Tang Clan, revealing that their communication is as scattered as presumed. “I mean, we haven’t been on the same page in years,” GZA told Rolling Stone. “It is what it is. Sometimes that match burns out. So, no, I don’t feel bad about it. It’s good. I’m grateful for everything we have done throughout our careers and if there’s nothing else to put out, then there’s nothing to put out. I’m constantly writing and working. It doesn’t stop there.” Wu-Tang forever! [RollingStone]
