[NOTE: For those that read regularly and/or care, I'm taking a short vacation and will be back home at the end of the week, so I figured I'd hit y'all off with a week's worth of content (this post and the 3 preceding posts), just to keep y'all content. That's called a heteronym, people! See what I do for y'all? Anyways, as far as I know, Lethal should be around, if he's not busy trying to hook up interviews with famous people. Stay tuned...]
Raekwon knows how to create a “classic” — and if we can’t have proof in the form of an album until the summer of 2008 (Cuban Linx II‘s new tentative release date), I guess we’ll have to settle for an interview. We linked to his great interview with ThaFormula.com weeks ago, and now we have another must-read with HipHopDX.com. Rae speaks on 8 Diagrams (which does feature Ghostface now), his Ice Water side-project, Lil’ Wayne namedropping him on Ja Rule’s new single (which, in my opinion, is garbage otherwise), and, as expected, the allegations made by Superb about having written Supreme Clientele.
Since ML’s post detailing the situation was our most commented-upon and linked-to post ever at a whopping twelve comments/pingbacks (hey, you gotta crawl before you ball), we figured it was only necessary to link to Rae’s opinion on the situation, and collectively breathe a sigh of relief…
HHDX: While we’re clearing up old quotes, is there any truth to the old rumor made new again via Tony Yayo’s recent comments in Spin claiming Superb, of your pre-Ice Water crew American Cream Team, wrote all of Supreme Clientele for Ghostface?
Raekwon: He know damn well he ain’t write that fuckin’ album. I don’t even wanna get into shit like that, because it just makes me upset that muthafuckas be running they mouth all kinda ways. But at the end of the day, I think Ghost gonna have to really say what he gotta say.
HHDX: Yeah, the only reason I asked you about this is ’cause Superb came out of your crew.
Raekwon: Yeah, that’s my son. That’s my son, and trust me he ain’t write nobody’s fuckin’ album.
Although I’m sure most of us would’ve figured as much, hearing it from a trusted source (no disrespect to R.H.S. from OhWord.com, who said that he knew Superb and pretty much expressed the same opinion as Rae) can allow us to put this whole shit to rest.
And, as promised in the title, here’s an incredible 21-minute video interview with various members of the Wu discussing their upcoming album, courtesy of Bodog.TV.
