” When I sit here and see that the eight brothers from the neighborhood that I grew up with still have success, it had to be magical. I doubt if you get another ‘Wu-Tang Clan.’ That might be harder than getting the new ‘Jackson Five.’ Certain groups you only get one time, and we just happened to be that group. “


” To be honest with you, I don’t have one track that I consider better than the next because all I’m trying to do is still grow as an artist. I got way better since the early nineties, as far as putting words together. My best energy probably was the ’90s, because I was new. “

But he didn’t come with the right formula on ‘8 Diagrams.’ I think ‘Cuban Linx 2’ will have the Clan back where they need to be, but then it’s up for the Clan to be back where they need to be, too. ‘Cos it ain’t just the album, you know what I mean? It’s everything. “

When I look at ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Part II,’ I look at that as a Wu album. You feel me? Even though it was my brand and my thing that I done, I had my dudes on it. “


” I’ll tell a young kid in a minute, ‘If you don’t know how to read, then what good is trying to be an MC?’ Like, you can MC, but if you’re not trying to be a better person, learn and apply that to your MCing, then how far do you think you’re really going to go? “


” I’m always gonna be compared to the greatest cats that’s in the game, but I lack a little bit less when I’m not as visible as other guys. So I live with that thought right there – yo, you still gotta work, still got more to do. One thing where I come from you gotta remember is, don’t get souped up. “
