Wu-Tang Clan Reveals What Happened to Drake Collaboration

Group wasn't in a "woman-y" mood for Nothing Was the Same.

Published October 7, 2014

It's time to let go of that bated breath we're holding for Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever" remix featuring the Wu-Tang Clan themselves. In a recent interview, the group explained that lyrically, they just weren't on the same page as the OVO rapper.

“I guess we came too hard for him; he wanted us to talk about broads,” U-God told MTV. “We had to write it real fast. No lie, I probably had about six hours to write this thing. At the time, I wasn’t feeling woman-y —I was feeling hard as nails. So, I wrote him a hard as nail rhyme, and we was talking about something totally different, so the subject matter didn’t really mesh.”

Despite their excitement to be looped in on the Noah "40" Shebib beat, which samples "It's Yourz" off The Wu's 1997 album, Wu-Tang Forever, apparently, the fellas were in the same mood as many of the song's early critics who, for example, likened the song to a "wet noodle" in comparison to the group's legacy.

That doesn't mean that they're not still Drizzy fans, however. “I like Drake, though,” Ghostface said. “I like him because he’s pays homage. But at the end of the day, he knows how to rhyme. He’s not weak.”
