RZA Gives Raekwon Ultimatum To Agree to Terms for Wu-Tang Album

Raekwon has 30 days before he misses out on the album...
The battle between RZA and Raekwon has largely been responsible for the delay in releasing the latest Wu-Tang Clan album. The two have been going back and forth for a while now, with Raekwon telling Rolling Stone last week that he was "on strike" due to RZA being too distant from the music world.
Now, RZA has fired his own shot back. The rapper/producer/director/actor told SI that Raekwon had thirty days to agree to terms on A Better Tomorrow or he may not appear on it.
RZA noted, "The album is slated to come out in July. If we don't come to terms within the next 30 days, then this will have to be an album without Raekwon or an album that never sees the light of day. That's a very strong potential. I would never want to put out a Wu-Tang album without every member available. At the same time, I don't want the fans to not have this incredible music we've been working on for the last year. So that's going to be a tough decision, but we have about 30 days to make that decision and come to that conclusion."
