Starting early this past summer, Raekwon figured out for us that #TBT can mean more than posting old acne-scarred photos of prom night. Since then, vintage soul and R&B jams got a Raekwon weekly redo thanks to a little Wu-spiration. The “Throwback-Thursday/TBT” mixes included new flows over the likes of many classics from the Gap Band, the Isley Brothers and The Spinners, […]


With the Wu set to release their much-anticipated sixth studio album A Better Tomorrow due in a couple weeks (December 2nd to be exact), Shaolin’s finest drops a track to whet y’alls appetites, “Necklace”. As fans of the Clan are aware, A Better Tomorrow was supposed to be out last year to mark the 20th anniversary of the […]


As you man have noticed, Raekwon has been doing a series of Throwback Thursday goodies as of late. You also may have noticed that today isn’t Thursday anymore. Regardless, the newest in the Raekwon #TBT series is his visit to the Gap Band’s  “Yearning for Your Love”, and it just may be the best of the […]


Just like Raekwon’s last Throwback Thursday entry (), the Wu Tang Clan’s esteemed Chef is back to the kitchen mixing up another soul classic. This time around, Raekwon hits up the Spinners’ “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love?”, and laces some supreme Rae babble over the classic track. Originally dropped back in 1973, the song is […]


After two  prior throwback inspirations in the #TBT series (the Horace Brown-based”Stop Trippin” and Rose Royce’s “Wishing on a Star” being the last two), the Wu Chef now drops his third #TBT installment, this one based on the Isley Brothers classic “Footsteps in the Dark”  — you know, the one that soundtracked Ice Cube having an […]

Hell, there still hasn’t been anyone close to Wu Tang Clan in rap or rock or gospel or yodeling or damn well anything else since then. But in those halcyon years RZA helmed some all time classics, and Ghostface Killah’s […]

Wu Tang's plump rapper benefits those struck by Sandy

Who says the Wu don’t give a F? The Chef Raekwon certainly does — everyone’s favorite chipmunk rapper has teamed up with Affinity Cycles to auction a mini collection of bicycles benefitting those struck by Hurricane Sandy. Each of the 3 bikes is named after an area struck by the infamous deluge: New York City (above), Rockaway […]


After GZA’s watershed Liquid Swords (which already received the ultimate boxset treatment here), Raekwon the Chef”s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is widely considered the best solo Wu Tang record of the 90s. And just like Liquid Swords, it’s Get On Down that gives Only Built 4 Cuban Linx the deluxe treatment. Known in uderground […]
