RZA stares out the window of a room at the Soho Grand hotel in New York, looking a little weary. The Wu-Tang Clan leader just got off a marathon conference call with the rest of the group, who are getting ready to release A Better Tomorrow, their first album in seven years. As so often happens when the Wu talk to (or about) one another, gripes flew: Inspectah Deck was irked RZA had told the MCs what to rhyme about on the album; Raekwon refused to appear in the video for a new single. "Making our last album was difficult," says RZA, referring to 2007's 8 Diagrams. "This one knocked it out of the box."
