Sadly for Wu-Tang, that cred was mostly just conveyed tangentially, as Cher’s representative tells Rolling Stone the singer “recorded her parts separately, so I don’t believe there was direct interaction”—thus denying the Clan the opportunity to glean some of Cher’s swagger. But hopefully it was enough to convince Raekwon to set aside his recently expressed beliefs that RZA has lost touch with Wu-Tang’s original vibe and started making “mediocre shit,” after Raekwon hears RZA got Cher for their album.
