The Wu-Tang Clan clan has seen highs and lows in the recent weeks surrounding the release of its new album, "A Better Tomorrow."
Some of the news was interesting -- like that of a second new album released in an edition of one, sold to the highest bidder in a comment on hip-hop music as fine art.
But the lows have been lower: Note the sad and grisly tale of Wu-Tang affiliate Christ Bearer, and the spat between Raekwon and RZA about the new album's direction. Raekwon had threatened not to participate in the album because he didn't like RZA's production moves, while RZA threatened that the album might be scuttled if he didn't show up.
The two have now reportedly buried the hatchet, however. A note on the official Wu-Tang site suggested that Raekwon is back in the fold.

There's no news yet about Raekwon's exact contributions, but given that he'd previously pegged his chances of playing on the record as "a 2" on a 1-to-10 scale, this is a promising turn.
