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, […]


The Wu, perhaps a little hungry to stay ahead of the hype in any way possible, continues on the quest for the marketer’s new edge on the music industry. With all the buzz about the one-album-only concept surrounding their upcoming release of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, it’s not surprising A Better Tomorrow, their twentieth anniversary album, would […]


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 […]

Sometimes shit just has weird timing. Yesterday we posted the amazing How High’s the Water Mama tribute mixtape of De La Soul’s 3 Feet High and Rising debut album, and the day before we posted Rebels Without A Pause: The Induction Celebration of Public Enemy into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame documentary. In […]

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 […]
