Wu Tang Clan Members Explain What Happened To Their Collaboration With Drake

Drake mentioned back in October last year that he had a collaboration with Wu-Tang Clan about to drop, which would be a remix to his “Wu-Tang Forever” song off the Nothing Was The Same album.

However, a year later and the remix has still not been released. It also looks like we will never be hearing the song anymore after it seems Drizzy and the Wu-Tang had different subject matters in their verses.

U-God from Wu-Tang Clan recently explained to MTV that Drizzy Drake wanted to talk about woman on the track, but he was not “feeling woman-y” at the time, so he wanted to rap a “hard” verse.

You can watch a few of the Wu-Tang members explain what happened with this collaboration after the jump. I wonder if we will ever get the music video for the original “Wu-Tang Forever” song that Drake shot back in January with A$AP Rocky too?
