Raekwon Shouts Out The Youtube Comment Section Of "Ice Cream"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Steph Curry may have the shot (we see you, GSW), but around these parts the only chef goes by the name of Raekwon. Yesterday, Noisey released a new video featuring the founding Wu Tang Clan member sitting down peruse the Youtube comments section of his classic 1995 "Ice Cream" music video, and oh what a treat it was. Raekwon shouted out the bygone days of real butts and Cappadonna's questionable wardrobe choices, and for the most part played nice with the peanut gallery, who voiced their due reverence for the Only Built 4 Cuban Linx cut.

It's a beautiful thing to watch Raekwon reminisce about the amazing feeling of shooting the "Ice Cream" video out in Queens, NYC, and the entire Youtube comment rundown is an eminently positive affair. "It's a lot of bullshit out there," the chef said of current hip-hop. "People, they follow so many different trends that it's like motherfuckers don't know if they're coming or going sometimes."

"There's fake people in hip-hop, but hip-hop ain't fake."

Raekwon is nearing the release of his Fly International Luxurious Art LP release, a highly anticipated disc that you can preorder on iTunes today (it drops April 28th). But for now, enjoy a trip back in time to the simple days of beats, rhymes and soft serve in a sugar cones. Watch Raekwon break down the comment section of "Ice Cream" below.
