Ghostface Killah Says Drake Made Wu-Tang Clan's Movement Bigger

Ghostface Killah says Drake is adding on to the Wu-Tang Clan movement with "Wu-Tang Forever" off "Nothing Was The Same."

Ghostface Killah says Drake has added to the Wu-Tang Clan movement with "Wu-Tang Forever," a selection off the Toronto rapper's most recent album, Nothing Was The Same.  

"He did what he did," Ghostface Killah said during an interview with vladtv.com. "There's probably some fans that climbed on. All through Europe, I had 9-year-old, 8-year-old babies that came to the shows knowing words. What Drake did, he just made the movement more bigger. So, I ain't turnin' down no fans. This is Wu-Tang Forever. He even said it. All he's doing is addin' on." 

Raekwon recently spoke about Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever."

"At the end of the day, regardless of what, we were mentioned in a great way," Raekwon said in an interview with MTV. "He named the title of his song after brothers, so however you did it, at the end of the day, it's still love. It's still respect there. I still thought the record was a great record, regardless of what. It ain't nothin' rude about the record, nothin' disrespectful. It's all love. Hey, I'm for it."

While some members of Wu-Tang have been supportive of Drake, Inspectah Deck has been clear about his stance on the track. As reported by HipHopDX in September, Inspectah Deck disagrees with Drake's song title.

"I don't even know how to take it, my brother," Deck said in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "I just felt it don't need to be 'Wu-Tang Forever.' It should be called 'It's Yourz,' if that's the case. That's what the hook seems to be. That's what the main basis of the rhyme seems to be. So you can call it 'It's Yourz' and it would have the same impact. But to call it Wu Tang Forever'...unless the song is about the Clan like that, then it's cool. I'm like, 'Yo, if there's a remix coming out, it got brothers on it and you just wanted to leak this one first and then come back with the Clan in that strategy, that's not the understanding that brothers had in the beginning."

A remix of the song is slated to include members of Wu-Tang Clan, though the remix has yet to be released.  

In September, Drake said that Ghostface Killah called him one of his favorite emcees.

"I had the best moment of my life the other day," Drake said during his CRWN interview presented by MySpace. "One of the best moments. Ghostface Killah called me. I don't want to out his business, but he was just so real about it that I've gotta tell this story because I'm proud. So, if he watches this, I'm sorry, but I've gotta tell this story. He was like, 'Yo, son, there's this guy on Twitter. He's been pretending to be me for a long time and talked down on you. But I just wanted to tell you, you're one of my favorite emcees.' To hear that from him, somebody who we've all looked up to for so long, it meant a lot."

    HA HA HA, Ghost a funny dude, he know Drake one of them rappers he'd like to slap fire out of. He's just making a business statement, if Man (A) can help you sell records and move units, you cosign Man (A) and get your chicken.

    listen to some of you go on like a little 14 year old girl. I mean who gives a fuck if Ghost likes Drakes music, dude probably listens to many artists from all types of music, that shouldn't matter to anyone. Ghost and the Wu are legends and put out some of the best records at one point and some of you bitchin and complaining what musician he likes...the fuck?

    He basically said the song was wack but it cool because he didn't do anything to hurt the brand. He just added to the oral tradition.

    If you think about it, GFK and Drake make the same type of songs, the difference is that Ghost will do something about the situation on the song - Yeah I fucked your friend or I shoulda slapped you but the god said chill or kick her out the house and take shit back. Basically Drake is the simp version of Ghostface.

      Don't leave it at that explain why is that wrong? You don't picture Drake doing Back like that or Never be the same again (the carl thomas joint)? Oh shit don't that sound familiar Nothing was the same.
  • drake runs rap
    see this is exactly what i said u real hiphop fan wannabe virgins. Drake makes carreers. Drake is so popular he gave wutang their 5 min of fame because wutang is irrelevent no1 gives a fuck about them had it not been for drake. The putang clan begged to drake to make them relevent again. Now not only have i said this before but its even coming from a putang members mouth so learn to accept the truth you internet nerd virgins.

DRAKE IS NOT HIPHOP! Whats next: MILEY CYRUS making a song called: 36 chamber and wu tang jumping on the remix. Fuck hiphop! I thought it was all about KEEPING it real!

      It never was about keeping it real, it was about the money. Who the hell understands what Rae and ghost say anyway? Rappers should be barred from talking outside of hiphopsongs. Drake is the worst artist of all time, if ghost really thinks he's good than aw hell. Hiphop must be dead for real.

      FYI, It wasnt from some unknown website it was the official store for the record label owned by RZA himself! RZA's website and record label stole our money! and some of the items being sold weren't available anywhere else!
