Raekwon‘s debut album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…, is a masterpiece. He knows this, you know this, but we can’t get enough of the Wu-Tang rapper explaining the science behind its creation.
A proper Raekwon album includes braggadocios and plenty of wisdom to boot, and his latest release Fly International Luxurious Art is no different.
The wait is nearly over for Raekwon’s new album Fly International Luxurious Art, which releases on April 28.
RZA and Raekwon are back on good terms, and more importantly, the latter is expected to contribute verses on Wu-Tang Clan’s upcoming A Better Tomorrow LP. This news follows months of back and forth banter between the longtime collaborators about the root of their discourse.
As much as the Hip-Hop community is pulling for Shaolin’s finest, the Wu-Tang Clan seems to be in a deep disarray. Raekwon claims he is on strike and most recently not so affiliate member Christ Bearer allegedly attempted suicide. The RZA visited the HOT 97 morning show to give the world a much needed update.
In a perfect world, Wu-Tang Clan would hit the studio to make a new album in peace and harmony. But rogue member Raekwon candidly spoke with Rolling Stone about why his underlying issues with RZA and management are the reason he’s yet to lay a single verse down on the group’s upcoming A Better Tomorrow LP.
The wide disconnect within the Wu-Tang Clan seems to become more apparent each week. Recently, the RZA stated he is unclear why Raekwon has yet to participate on their new album.
