While this week commemorates the 20th anniversary of the release of the Wu-Tang Clan’s classic debut album, “Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),” fans are still anticipating the group’s delayed forthcoming project, “A Better Tomorrow.” And while all of the original members are on board for the opus, it appears that Raekwon has a few differences to settle with founding member, RZA.

During last night’s episode of “The Arsenio Hall Show,” RZA cleared the air on a recent tweet that Raekwon posted suggesting a bit of discord within the iconic group.

“He’s talking about an article I did where we was talking about doing the new album for the fans,” he admitted. “I think when you do 20 years of music and your fans are still supporting you, before you close the chapter it’s good to do one more album.”

“And so I’ve been reaching out to all the Wu-Tang brothers. And all of us came to the table so far…but Raekwon is the last one to come to put his verses on. So in the article, I was like, ‘Yo Raekwon, my brother, we need you. Come on up here, drop your verses and let’s make this one final album for the fans.’ So that’s what that article is about and I still mean that.”
