How Did He Did What Drake Couldn’t?
Wu-Tang members Raekwon and Masta Killa were featured on Beats 1 Radio studios in NYC with Ebro. The legendary MCs talked about the collab with Logic and how it came to be. They also revealed that Drake did try to get Wu-Tang on his track first. Raekwon went on to mention;
“We was familiar with him and we liked him. We liked what he was about and instantly it was like, ‘Yo, let’s do it,’ and he was able to have the patience to get it because I know he was working on it for a second.” He also states “He was able to reach out and one thing led to another and the next thing you know … he even got one of the top MCs in the neighborhood that we looked up to on the track too. It was like, ‘Wow, you even went and got Scotty. Why he on there?’ How’d that happen? But it happened.”
Masta Killa said “It was the timing.” He goes on to state how Drake did attempt to reach out and wanted everyone on his Wu-Tang track. “But Logic was blessed to,” Masta Killa added. The song was finished not too long after reaching out and included Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, RZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, Jackpot, Scotty Wotty, U-God, Masta Killa & GZA.
