Remember that 20th anniversary Wu-Tang reunion album we were supposed to get this year? Well, RZA has been pretty vocal recently about what’s causing the delay. In an interview with Grantland, he placed the blame on Raekwon for not showing up to studio sessions. Rae responded on Twitter, writing, “Yea I just read that RZA article? Sh*t is funny to me. I love u RZA, u know what it really is.”

During an appearance on the recently-revived The Arsenio Hall Show last night — 20 years after the Clan first performed on the show — the Wu leader elaborated on the hold-up, but assured fans him and The Chef “got nothing but brotherly love for each other.” Could it be the creative differences that Method Man spoke of that’s keeping the pair apart?

I been reaching out to all the Wu-Tang brothers and all of us came to the table so far — Method Man came and did a lot of verses, Inspectah Deck, myself — but Raekwon is the last one to come to fit 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… I know Raekwon’s gonna be there, he know I love him, and we got nothing but brotherly love for each other. But put some of the business to the side and let’s go make this music, yo.

Watch the interview after the jump…
