In celebration, Hip Hop royalty and fans alike will gather together on Tuesday, September 8, 2009 at Santos Party House, to welcome back one of Hip Hop’s favorite MC’s Raekwon The Chef. To host the evening festivities will be none other than Sean “Diddy” Combs alongside New York radio HOT 97 morning personality Peter Rosenberg as DJ Kid Capri warm up the crowd on the wheels of steel. This album release party, presented by Ice H20 Records and Littles, is expected to be one of those legendary moments in New York City Hip-Hop.
Easily considered one of the most influential Hip-Hop albums of its time, Raekwon’s 1999 smash solo project Only Built 4 Cuban Linx remains at the top of every Hip-Hop “Best Of” list. After a brief recording hiatus and years on the road as both a solo artist and a part of the ground breaking Wu-Tang Clan, “The Chef” returns with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, to be released on September 8th on his Ice H2O Record label.
Regarding the follow up of his classic Raekwon states, ” I’m excited about this project. This is a true evolution from where we began. I’m also overwhelmed by the love and support that I’ve received. My long time friend and Hip Hop veteran, Diddy, reached out to offer his support and agreed to host the event. It’s going down at Santos Party House, which is one of my personal favorite spots. I also knew it would be the perfect environment to celebrate with my core audience.”
Rae will also bless the audience with a live performance and such artists as Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Lyfe Jennings, Talib Kweli, Beanie Siegel, Ghostface, and Slick Rick will also be in the building that night to help bless the stage.
