Wu-Tang Clan still ain't nothin' to fuck with after two-plus-decades worth of guillotine-slinging, martial-arts-inspired hood tales shared to the masses all over the globe.
As the brothers from Shaolin champion their continued success, the man of the hour is Raekwon Da Chef. Shallah Raekwon had heads swinging from left-to-right as his new work, The Wild, hit all platforms on Mar. 24. Led by the singles, "My Corner" featuring Lil' Wayne and "Purple Brick Road" with G-Easy — Lex Diamonds continues to turn street epics into must-see TV.
We were fortunate to have had the impressively lyrical MC grace our HQ for a special Facebook Live chat. Coming through draped in fly, international luxurious art — Raekwon sat down with our managing editor, Kevito Clark, to talk about a host of subjects. From toning down on features after his 2015 effort to sharing how it felt to have no Wu-members on his latest to reminiscing about Wu-Tang Forever as it celebrates its 20th anniversary — Raekwon continues to make everything around him vivid and fresh.
