Raekwon‘s MC powers have always been superhuman in our book, but in a new video produced by the hardworking hive minds of Complex and Mass Appeal, the Wu-Tang founding father clues us all in to what his specific name and abilities would be, were he to ever become a legitimate caped crusader. King Kwon is what the Chef refers to himself as, imagining himself standing on the Empire State Building in a pair of Nikes “just being there for the people that’s doing things for themselves, you know? Really supporting them.”

The clip is, of course, light-hearted but Raekwon’s honest good nature shines through in every second, and the animations that accompany his explanations are worth your time in their own right. Watch the video below and join us in a pact to help uphold truth, justice, and the Wu way.
