Raekwon The Chef is an iconic member of the hip-hop community. Aside from being one of the driving forces of the Wu-Tang Clan, arguably the most influential group in the history of hip-hop, the Chef has had quite the solo career dating back to the early 90s. A true pioneer of the game, Raekwon has no plans of slowing down.
After giving us five memorable albums and some undeniable classic records over the years, Raekwon is set to drop his 6th solo studio album Fly International Luxurious Art on April 28th and the anticipation is high. “I know pretty much everyone knows what I’m capable of doing and now I think people just want to make sure they can see the growth…I’m excited, man. I truly believe we have another classic on our hands,” Rae tells us in our exclusive interview with the OG.
The Chef recently dropped a record titled ‘Wall To Wall‘ featuring French Montana and Busta Rhymes, calling it “a dope underground record that had an anthem feel to it.” While it’s not considered a single from the album, fans can expect to hear the New York-inspired track on F.I.L.A. on April 28th. Rae also said he has a few surprises in terms of features and producers, but wants to keep it that way until the album drops. He did reveal, however, that he has songs with producers S1 and Scoop DeVille on the album, whom he considers very talented.
For the rest of our sit down, Raekwon reminisced on his successful #TBT series that he ran towards the end of 2014, his take on today’s industry and how he feels about the current realm of artists, whether or not he listens to other artists; more information surrounding Fly International Luxurious Art and what we can expect from his label IceH2O Records in the near future.
