The Wu Tang Clan have been in the news recently for their announcement and continued delay of their anticipated album A Better Tomorrow. The Wu planned on releasing the project this year in order to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of their first album Enter the Wu Tang: (36 Chambers), but all the members haven’t been able to come together. RZA said publicly every emcee in the group has come to record their verses besides Raekwon. There is no way of knowing why this is the case or if there is a seperate issue between the two, but it is holding up the music which is a situation no one wins from.

Meanwhile, Raekwon let loose a freebie this week with “Lion’s Paw” as the we hear the Chef rapping over the classic Gang Starr beat “Mass Appeal”. He sounds sharp on the track and that DJ Premier production still resonates to this day. Raekwon is building hype for his new solo album F.I.L.A (Fly International Luxurious Art), but let’s be honest here. The fans want Rae in the studio recording for the Wu album so although these songs are nice, we hope the Wu can settle their differences and come together one last time.

Take a listen below as Raekwon sounds right at home over this timeless beat.
