Just the thought of Drake and Wu-Tang Clan on the same song was enough to whip hip-hop fans into a frenzy. Now, a "Wu-Tang Forever" remix is on the way, but we may have to wait a little longer than first expected.
"The majority of everybody [recorded their verses], probably minus three," Cappadonna said when he appeared on "RapFix Live" Wednesday to celebrate the Wu's upcoming 20-year anniversary.
According to Cap, Ghostface Killah Method Man and Raekwon have yet to lay their features and then, of course, there's Inspectah Deck, who elected not be a part of the song.
"Meth did lay a joint, but then he didn't want to do that one, so he took that off," Cappadonna confirmed. "But everybody else did it. I don't know if it's gonna be accepted by our peers our whatever, but it sound good to me."
Last month, MTV News caught up with Raekwon, who confirmed that he hadn't recorded his verse, but fully intended to. "I ain't get a chance to bust my joint off yet, but I talked to Drake and we're gonna get to it. It just was like we were on the road; things were happening so quick," he explained. "Some brothers were able to go in there and smash out and, unfortunately, I wasn't able to get there yet but it's gonna happen, though.
Ultimately, the Clan are just happy to be acknowledged by the younger rap generation that includes Drake, two decades after they dropped their debut.
"Just to see that happening, 20 years later in my run — on my walk — it's a beautiful thing. I'm not here to judge," Rae said, "I'm here to give homage. For me, that's a great thing because that's how I felt about the generation that did it before me: the [Kool] G Raps, the Slick Ricks — I see them, I'm still in the zone, I'm still stuck. If I didn't watch that, I wouldn't be who I am today, and it's just out of respect."
