All nine members of rap collective Wu-Tang Clan reunited on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night, where they performed a new single. The group also said that their new album will be out in November.
The group performed “Ron O’Neal,” which was released as a single last night on iTunes. According to Billboard, they also performed the 1997 track “Triumph.”
Every member of the group was on hand for the show, including Raekwon, GZA, RZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna. As Rolling Stone points out, it was surprising that both RZA and Raekwon were there, since Raekwon didn’t want to work with the band after disagreeing with RZA.
The new album is called A Better Tomorrow and will feature “Ron O’Neal.” They are still working on a “secret album,” which RZA said the group received a $5 million offer for. That record also features Cher for some reason.
“I think we all started for a better tomorrow,” RZA told Jon Stewart. “Wu-Tang, we have something in common with each other — a brotherhood, a respect. And when we said 'a better tomorrow,' we're starting to make a better tomorrow for ourselves, but also to inspire a better tomorrow for the world.”
