Raekwon the Chef Off Tha' Wall Interview

“Off Tha’ Wall” – Raekwon

We had the extreme honor of linking up with Raekwon for the newest segment of Off Tha’ Wall. A member of the Wu-Tang Clan, Rae is a living legend whose name rings bells from Shaolin to Beijing. Known for his vivid, abstract lyrical ability and his trend-setting style, he is one of the most influential members of hip hop culture.

When we chopped it up with The Chef, he spoke about the early days of Wu-Tang and his musical interests, as well as revealing where he drew a lot of his wordplay from. Raekwon made sure to put us up on some of his favorite kung fu flicks. Out of all the topics we discussed, what was most surprising are his hobbies away from rap. All we can say is, never sleep on the gawd!
