The Chef is the latest rapper to stop by Power 105′s Breakfast Club program. Rae speaks on the status of his Fly International Luxurious Art album as well as Wu-Tang’s A Better Tomorrow LP, Drake’s “Wu-Tang Forever” remix, working with Snoop Dogg and Akon, and more.
Sugar Factory Films takes it back to 2001 by unveiling the previously unreleased video for “Y’all Been Warned” from the Clan’s album Iron Flag. While not a spectacular video itself, it’s great that this visual has seen the light of day as I’m a big fan of the immensely underrated Iron Flag. Read More

Is there anything that the cast alumni from “The Wire” can’t do? First, they appear in the indie comedy smash Newlyweeds (check your local theaters for info). Then, cast stand-out Tristan Wilds a.k.a. Mack Wilds has a hit with “Own It” trotting all over the charts. Here, he performs an album cut “U Can Cry To Me,” which features Staten Island cohort Raekwon. Is The Chef on everything right now or what? He’s on his ’05 Ghostface sh*t.
Rae and Ghost are leading the Wu Tang resurgence, and even though Regis Philbin pronounces the name ‘Kae-ron’ in an early blooper, this kind of look will last more than he knows. Plus, I couldn’t think of a better nickname for Regis than “The New ODB.”
the unofficial tag-team is one of hip-hop’s quiet victories over other forms of music. while rock and jazz and r&b is often replete with dual acts like the singer and the drummer, or the keyboard player and the bassist, hip-hop tends to thrive on the power of the individual voice.
Legendary alive. Reminding everyone who originated the concept behind Drake’s homage on NWTS is Raekwon. Glad someone in that age bracket is still interested in rapping powerfully (ahem, Hov).
