U-God is sharing his truth in his newly released memoir, RAW: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang, where he details the demise of the legendary hip-hop collective and why he feels RZA is responsible.
The rapper speaks in the present tense while breaking down why the crew is no longer the tight-knit group it once was, writing, “Right now, it just looks like the Wu brothers are not on the same page, going at each other’s throats, missing shows, and all that. But, to me, it’s really years of BS catching up to RZA,” according to excerpts obtained by Rolling Stone.
“Things started changing little by little, guys got fed up, and eventually, we all got individual managers to negotiate and serve as a buffer from all the bullsh*t. It was no longer one for all and all for one,” he continued.
U-God went into detail as to why he feels Bobby Digital was the main problem, writing, “In 25 years of being in the business, RZA has never placed the group at an A-list agency. I wonder why. Just talking about this sh*t frustrates me. I mean here we are, the Rolling Stones of hip-hop, and we ain’t even got proper representation. Meanwhile, RZA’s always had A-list agents repping him personally. What the f*ck is that all about?”
