Longevity in Hip-Hop is no easy task, but Raekwon the Chef has managed to thrive in the game for over 20 years. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper recently linked up with GQ to talk about his new album, while getting a fresh haircut and shave at the Barclays Center.

The topics discussed were wide ranging—from fatherhood to his disapproval of rappers wearing too tight jeans—but he did offer up some intel on the forthcoming F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) album.

“This album I got to say, it’s one of my top works today,” said Rae, who used to be a barber himself. “I really don’t like to give out all the goods right away… I’ll give you one; I got the legendary Snoop on the album.”

Watch the full video, including Rae revealing how he likes to clean up (like, sweeping and washing dishes) in his spare time, below.
