Method Man should be dropping his new project The Meth Lab shortly (August 21st to be exact) but in order to hold fans over he’s sharing “The Purple Tape,” featuring legendary Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and Inspectah Deck. By now everyone should be familiar with those three words: The Purple Tape. If you’re not, it’s quite simple: It refers to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… and its unique purple plastic packaging. So it’s only convenient that Rae is present on the track, too. Listen to Meth’s “The Purple Tape” for those monster Wu verses you’ve been thirsting for after the jump!
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge are set to drop their followup to the first Twelve Reasons to Die on July 10th and today marks a big day for the album as the duo share a massive track in “Resurreciton Morning.” As if the song title wasn’t enough, Ghostface recruits fellow Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon and R&B master Bilal for the track as well. The track is spooky and is catapulted forward by Younge’s eerie piano-driven production. Check out “Resurrection Morning” after the jump and be on the lookout for the second installment of Twelve Reasons to Die dropping the 10th.
Raekwon links up with Snoop Dogg for his F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) cut “1, 2 1, 2.” The visuals arrive a few weeks after the release of his new album and it’s convenient that Snoop’s new album BUSH is due out tomorrow. Check out the visuals now.
With Raekwon’s F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) project on the horizon, the Chef lets loose one of the album’s most anticipated tracks. “I Got Money” features A$AP Rocky in rare form over a boom-bap style beat laced by S1.
Yesterday we posted a video of Raekwon debuting his new track featuring French Montana on Shade 45. But thankfully we don’t have to go to that video each time we wanna hear it because Rae is sharing the official full audio featuring both French Montana and Busta Rhymes. The track will serve as the first single off of Fly International Luxurious Art, out April 28. Listen after the jump.
Raekwon has kept silent when it comes to his highly-anticipated, forthcoming (we think?) new album F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) but after stopping by Shade 45 he felt compelled to drop that new joint “Wall to Wall” featuring fellow NYC rapper French Montana. Check out the video after the jump!
The wait is finally over. After weeks of sharing individual bricks (verses) from 36 total rappers, Noisey is now sharing the full version of their epic 42-minute The Rap Monument project.

Raekwon, Vado & Go Dreamer contribute their bricks (verses) for Noisey’s forthcoming Rap Monument project (30 rappers from Young Thug to Raekwon to Action Bronson spitting bars as one unit) after already sharing Pusha T, Danny Brown, Nipsey Hussle, and Problem. More bricks are on the way; stay tuned. Peep Raekwon, Vado & Go Dreamer for The Rap Monument after the jump.
The wait is finally over, Wu-Tang Clan’s first album in over seven years, A Better Tomorrow, is here. After teasing the album with singles like “Ruckus In B Minor,” “Necklace,” and “A Better Tomorrow” the Staten Island rap collective has made the entire album available for stream via YouTube. Take a listen through the album after the jump, which will be available for purchase beginning December 2.
After finally announcing the release of their highly-anticipated, long-gestating new album A Better Tomorrow back in early October, Wu-Tang Clan followed it up by dropping two new tracks within a span of a few weeks. Those two new cuts being “Ruckus In B Minor” (which they performed on Letterman last night) and the gritty “Necklace.” Now Clan is back in the front, sharing the title track. A Better Tomorrow will be released on December 1 via Warner Bros., Wu-Tang Clan’s new home. Listen to “A Better Tomorrow” after the jump.
The release date for Wu-Tang Clan’s first studio album in almost seven years is quickly approaching and after dropping the track “Ruckus In B Minor” earlier this month the Clan is back in the front with “Necklace”. The cut features verses from Ghostface Killah, Cappadonna, Raekwon, and GZA with production that will surely have you thinking Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Classic ish. After the jump!
Here’s a blast from the past. Recorded way back in 1995, Raekwon has decided it’s now suitable to remix this oldie but goodie classic. Traveling back in time Rae jumps on Faith Evans’ 1995 classic, “You Used to Love Me” and polishes off the dust with a fresh, new verse. Rae has been blessing fans with these #TBT tracks and his remix of “You Used to Love Me” is a welcome addition. Check it after the jump.
Raekwon remixes a more recent vintage hit, Fantasia’s “When I See You” and the storytelling is full tilt. The boy-meets-girl and Five Percenter Meets Queen talk remind us of all the hip-hop love songs the Chef came up hearing. Listen after the jump.
