Raekwon has been on a tear lately, dropping consistent heat rocks and leaving his much younger competition in the dust. After two decades in the game, the Chef is reuniting with his Wu-Tang Clan brothers for the upcoming 20th anniversary album, A Better Tomorrow.

Raekwon chopped it up with Sermon’s Domain over the weekend after rocking a set at Coachella and dropped some thoughts, including not knowing the name of the upcoming Clan record.

“For that particular title right there, I didn’t have no knowledge of that,” says Raekwon. “I found out like a fan too, but RZA, that’s the Abbot and he do what he do.  I liked the title overall. Titles can change anytime anyway.”

Rae knows that fans are expecting a lot out of the Wu with A Better Tomorrow, and he explains that he and his crew are going in with the best intentions.

“It gotta be a hit, it gotta be a smasher,” he explained. “ The 20-year balance, it’s balanced itself out. It’s time for another record. That’s why business is so adamant.”

This fall will mark nine years since the passing of popular clansman Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Rae was pressed on whether or not ODB will have some possible verses from the vaults make it on the album. “Yo, it’s a lot of things in the archives, things I haven’t even seen yet,” answered Rae.

Check out the rest of the interview below where Raekwon speaks on a possible Wu-Tang Clan tour, a new solo record and more.
