You know it’s not our stidile to keep you waiting when we have the goods and they’re good to go…
5 years ago, the Wu-Tang tongued emcee, Reakwon, gifted us the Unexpected Victory LP to help our New Year procession along. This 2017, The Black Freq Sheets presents you with a visual gem from the icy-waved Him. 47 years young on January 12, ‘The Chef’ let his fans sneak a preview of a soon to be released project.
March 10th is the official release date of the highly anticipated (especially by The Black Freq Sheets) album, ‘The Wild’ and it is sure to help us all abide those ides. The artist is still rocking with IceH20 and will release the piece in an apparent joint venture with Empire Records. Like a lot of you, we weren’t really sure what to say about Only Built For Cuban Links 2, but F.I.L.A. was a Black Sheets favorite of The Chef’s IceH20 releases. Peep a preview of ‘The Wild’ artwork below.
Of course we were pretty interested in knowing who designed this hip-masterpiece and is he or she available to redo our alleyway. The Wu-tang Clan is legendary for penetrating wordplay as well as pushing the freight of video and visual art forward. ‘The Wild’ is however the most incredible Raekwon cover we’ve seen since… *scratchingourheads
At any rate, there’s no word on a track list or guest appearances but the cover does raise expectations (and a few concerns). If the music is half as provocative than the veteran emcee may find his name ranging out even crazier.
Of course we are huge fans but we couldn’t help but to get a little school girl giddy with anticipation when we read he told XXL Magazine, “Being in the game for a long time can only make me a more passionate artist and that’s where I’m at. It’s like I’m better than I was 20 years ago in my eyes, so it’s more about celebrating and showing people that I am still here with a more latch on the music I love.”
We can freq’in dig that.
