Statik Selektah is prepping the release of his forthcoming album, Extended Play due June 18th, 2013. For the album first single, Statik recruits Raekwon, Joey Bada$$ & Black Thought for a great hip hop record, “Bird’s Eye View.” Yeah, thank the hip hop God’s for this great record.
Last night in the T-Dot-Oh, Raekwon hit the stage at Sound Academy for Canadian Music Week and performed the entirety of his Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album. I got some footage of The Chef performing Incarcerated Scarfaces before bringing out Kardinal Offishall to help him with Ice Cream. This was definitely a special moment.
Very classic sounding Raekwon on this record. We receive a 2 for 2 hip hop deal from the Chef as he releases the mp3 as well as the official visual aid for “86 (Remix)”. The features include AZ and IceH2o Records signee, Altrina Renee. The video was directed by Directed by Monstar Films. Check out the official video after the jump.
We heard about this anticipated record. Today we get the Hit-Boy produced and featured record “Cypher.” The full list includes Casey Veggies, ScHoolboy Q, Kent Money, Audio Push, B Mac The Queen, Xzibit, Rick Ross, Method Man, Redman and Raekwon.
Off the forthcoming Hit-Boy Presents HS87: All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of mixtape. Take a listen below.
In this interview with Sermons Domain, The Chef discusses his impact on hip-hop, choosing to branch out from his Wu Tang’s own Rza and Ghostface Killah on sophomore album. Rae also talks about the unreleased/the shelved Wu-Massacre comic book, and more.
Okay okay, look for all the corny “Chef found his jewelry” lines on the blogs now. Raekwon continues his legacy with the twelve track Lost Jewlry free EP for his fans. Six songs in and I can already tell you he’s on his shit. Features come courtesy of Faith Evans, Freddie Gibbs, Altrina Rene & Maino. The production is deep too, swing down below for the tracklist x download link.
