Wu-Tang Clan already told you that they're witty and unpredictable, so even though it was reported that their upcoming 20-year anniversary LP would be titled A Better Tomorrow, it's really no surprise that the swordsmen might just change their minds.
"We putting that all in the making right now — I don't know if that's gonna be the title. That got thrown out there like that, but we really putting it together as we speak. What we dealing with, we're gonna bless the world soon," Ghostface Killah told MTV News before they took the stage at the Bonnaroo music festival in Manchester, Tennessee, this past weekend.
That was about all the timely news that we could wrestle from the Clan's tight grip during our chat, but it was still amazing just to be in the presence of such a mighty collective.
"This is my first Bonnaroo, I don't know what to expect. I know there's a lot of drunk white people out there today," Method Man shared before he showed off his shirt commemorating fallen group member Ol' Dirty Bastard to our cameras.
Raekwon was noticeably absent, but Mef, Ghostface, RZA, GZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa and Wu-affiliates Cappadonna and Redman all milled and sometimes mumbled Wu-isms into the mic — except for RZA, who insisted on talking into his stage mic, which was not linked into our camera feed.
In fact, at one point during the catch-up, RZA wanted to direct the interview while spilling an open champagne bottle. "I don't work for these amateurs," "The Man With the Iron Fists" director protested.
All in all, it was a good time and great to see the Wu together after all of these years. "Twenty years to the people — it's been great because we're still looking young," Ghost said. "We still ballin' with everybody and we're still puttin' that work in."
And still as witty and unpredictable as ever.
