After listening to the @Drake song, I agree with u... It is in no form a tribute to WU and SHOULD NOT wear the title Wutang Forever!— Inspectah Deck (@INSpectahDECKWU) September 13, 2013
I am not switching up.. My tweet earlier stated without previously hearing the song I thought it was a tribute and saw that as respect.— Inspectah Deck (@INSpectahDECKWU) September 13, 2013
My 2nd tweet based on hearing the song.. Not stating if its wack or not I said what I felt about the song and title in conjunction with WU— Inspectah Deck (@INSpectahDECKWU) September 13, 2013
Deck's initial post about the song supported Drake.

Drake's song, "Wu-Tang Forever," is slated to appear on the rapper's upcoming album Nothing was the Same.
On "Wu-Tang Forever," Drake discusses his upbringing and his success.
"I just gave the city life," Drake says on the track. "It ain't about who did it first. It's about who did it right / Niggas lookin like 'Preach' / Open cases on me for a half a million each / I find peace knowing that it's harder in the streets / I know. Luckily, I didn't have to grow there / I would only go there / 'Cause there's niggas that I know there."
Nothing was the Same is slated to be released September 24.
