“It’s our 20th anniversary and I thought what better way to celebrate than with an album we give our fans and maybe close our chapter that way," the rapper told Fuse. "I thought of the title A Better Tomorrow because I thought the world could use a better tomorrow. I have a big family of people struggling so I know that people are becoming un-optimistic about what the future holds."
RZA has mentioned before that Raekwon will not be featured on the new album, but he sincerely wishes to see that change. "I hope that he does become a part of this. If he don’t become a part of this… I want him to become a part of this. Like I told Raekwon, he has a magic voice. When he raps, it sounds like a record immediately."
