For those of you who don't know much about The Chef, Raekwon is a member of the Wu-Tang Clan. His newest album debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 and was number 2 on the Hip-Hop and R&B chart. If you're still not sold, take a look at these comments on the new album said by Raekwon himself:
It’s damn near 200% done. I wanna drop it on a major, but you’re definitely gonna get it by the summer of next year. By hook or crook. If I gotta do it independent, I gotta release it. I did a lot of hard work on this record and I refuse to throw it out and people be like, 'Yo, Rae, I ain’t know your shit was out.' Nah, I can’t afford for that to happen no more. That happened to me on The Lex Diamond Story. That happened to me on Immobilarity. I’m not going for it on this one. I’m not letting the industry control my destiny on this record. People been wanting this record for the last 10 years, so I gotta make sure that this shit is bulletproof.So yeah, the show's going to be a lot of fun. Check out some clips on the internet if you need more convincing, but seriously, DON'T MISS OUT!
Plus, the NPHC (National Pan-Hellenic Council) in conjunction with SEB will be hosting the Official Raekwon Afterparty directly after the show. All in all, it's going to be a great night.
