With ever body and their mama jumping in on the reality TV bug, Hip-Hop Wired has learned that the Wu-Tang Clan is in talks to bring their army to the small screen. Well that is if they can get all their players to play ball. According to an inside source, he revealed,
“Word on the streets says that Tareef, of Raekwon’s management team and longtime Clan affiliate (shown here with Raekwon at an event), has been in talks for quite some time with VH1 to do a reality show based on the WuTang Clan, which he created. Inside sources at VH1 confirm this and say that talks have been held up because Ghostface Killah has been the only hold out. Sources also say that GFK has asked to make more money than the rest of the members in the Clan causing even more division amongst the Clan.”
Ghostface also recently spoke to Hip-Hop about having differences and contractual arguments with Clan members in particular The RZA yet setting those problems aside when it’s time to do music.
“At the end of the day we brothers and we gotta man up about certain things. Don’t get me wrong we argue till we almost getting ready to fight B and it’s just what it is. So it just be are we gonna be mad at each other or are we gonna go to work? So it’s either… It’s two things, we adults we grown. I know your power, you know mine. We both valuable chess pieces so what you want to do. So it’s like that and at the end of the day, we all brothers and we all love one another. Because it’s like not naan one of us wants something to happen to the next man. I don’t care how mad you get. You don’t want that or want something that bad. You my brother but I can still be mad at you. Your brother might wear your pants and mess them up and you might even do something to him. You might yell at him, even fu*k him up but at the end of the day that’s still your brother. And if anybody mess with him, you still gonna have to go in and step in there and do the do whether right or wrong.”
Ghostface just dropped his eighth official album this week entitled Ghostdini The Wizard of Poetry In Emerald City. Ghost is also highly featured on Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 which dropped last month. Despite the discrepancies, it seems that The Wu is remaining on their lyrical grind.
The RZA is also gearing to drop his new memoir, The Tao Of Wu on October 15th. The Tao Of Wu is a personal memoir in which he talks about his passions for kung-fu movies, martial arts, chess, and music. He also discusses his own spirituality, growing up in the projects of New York and his multi-faceted career.
