U-God Details Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever" Remix
Wu-Tang Clan's U-God talks about why he "might've been too rough" on Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever" remix and confirms appearances from Cappadonna and Masta Killa on the song.
Wu-Tang Clan's U-God recently spoke about his appearance on Drake's unreleased "Wu-Tang Forever" remix.
"I put my verse in it," U-God said during a recent interview with MTV. "I'm too rough. I'm too raw...I had to write my dart fast. Being down with the Clan, it gave me the skill to write fast and precise with the dart. At one time, I had to be like that in order to get a slot on the mic. You had to be swift, hard and to the point...So, I had to do the same thing. We only had two hours in the studio to write this joint 'cause we was on tour when we got the record."
"I didn't hear the beat 'til I got there, so I didn't get a chance to marinate with it," U-God continued. "So I just threw my dart how I felt. I was saying some murderous ish. I was saying some rawness. And now that I listen to the joint now, I'm like, 'Damn, he was talking 'bout a broad.' I might've been too rough for y'all, man."
U-God confirmed that Cappadonna and Masta Killa are also set to appear on the remix to Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever."
Cappadonna's ties with Drake date back to before the Toronto rapper earned stardom, according to U-God.
"Capadonna did a song with Drake before y'all even knew Drake," U-God said. "Cap's still got the song. He got the record."
When asked if Inspectah Deck was involved with the remix for "Wu-Tang Forever," U-God said he did not know. Nonetheless, he said, "Every cup of tea ain't for everybody."
Inspecta Deck has been outspoken about Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever," a song that takes its title from Wu-Tang Clan's 1997 album, Wu-Tang Forever.
"The understanding that I had from the song was that we was supposed to get on it, not knowing if it was the remix or the original song," Inspectah Deck said in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "I believe it was the remix. We was supposed to get on it. Given to me, from RZA, he wanted all eight of us on it. So while we were in Amsterdam, we even booked studio time to go in and get on that song and that was the understanding that I was left with."
"I never made it on the song," Deck said exclusively to HipHopDX. "Actually, I went back to the hotel. Late night, I left. From my understanding, Meth got on the song, U-God, I think Masta Killah, Capp, not sure. But, I know that there were verses from the Clan on the song."
Deck also said he was not pleased with the song's title.
"When I finally got to hear the song, I was more or less like, 'Wow, I thought it was a tribute song like, it would be in respect of all eight members,'" Deck said. "And when I heard it, it was about a girl. I understood the context of where he was going with the song as far as 'It's Yourz.' He's saying that, like, everybody's telling him, 'It's yours.' Like, he owns it, whether he talking about the Rap game or the female. I understand in the context he's saying it. I felt it didn't have no bearing on the Wu-Tang Clan or Wu-Tang Forever for that matter. Besides the [fact that] I heard him say, 'Young brother on his Wu Tang.' That in itself gives respect to the Clan. I'm not taking that from the brother. Whatever his intentions was, I'm not saying that I'm feeling that he had some deliberate snake intentions. I'm saying that I disagree with the title of that song being 'Wu-Tang Forever' when it has no bearing on Wu-Tang Clan despite the fact that the 'It's Yourz' sample floatin' in the background. We sampled 'It's Yourz.' That's a sample. That's there for the taking. It's not like, 'Oh, he used y'all sample.' We both used T La Rock."
