RZA Will Not Join Wu-Tang Clan On Tour

RZA Will Not Join Wu-Tang Clan On TourThere may be trouble in paradise as RZA drops out of the tour.
Voltron will be missing its head this December, as RZA will not be joining the Wu-Tang Clan's national month-long tour. reports that the Clan's Abbot will miss the tour due to prior business engagements. "Well, I gotta be honest about the tour. I have too much business going this quarter, so I won't be on the tour," said RZA. "I'm going to try to join those guys during the springtime, though. Wu-Tang is coming to a lot of towns across the country and you know they'll leave their mark. I won't be there, unfortunately."

Although the RZA was on deck for this year's Rock the Bells festival, for which the Wu-Tang Clan was the penultimate act, this could point to tensions brewing between the Clan and RZA since 2007. At the time, Raekwon was vocally opposed to RZA's musical direction on the group's 8 Diagrams album, announcing that he would be doing a project titled Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang, which would not feature contributions from RZA. The album, which is still in the works, will be Raekwon's next solo release.
In the meantime, RZA's business ventures include two movies: martial arts film titled Wu-Tang Vs. The Golden Phoenix, as well as another film, Iron Fist.
