In the ongoing conversation of the current state of hip-hop, to evoke the mid-90’s “golden era” is to recount an initiation of albums whose level of originality, many older fans feel, could never be rivaled by most contemporary fan favorites.  ‘When they reminisce over’ these tales of ultimate hip-hop-ness, it often falls on deaf ears with young crowds, many of whom had barely learned to walk before the seemingly-ancient, 20th Century trendsetters had been overshadowed by the pop culture influence ushered in Jay Z, Swizz Beats and others…

Now, 20 years since the golden era’s utopian existence, very- very- few of its legendary originators still remain tangible to subsequent generations of fans.  Even fewer have managed to evolve with the ever-morphing trends such that their appeal is as widespread as ever… RAEKWON the Chef, founding member of Wu-Tang Clan, is one of them.

Arguably the driving force behind the Wu’s enduring prevalence, everybody loves Rae.  While his subject matter as an emcee isolates thugs and black-market entrepreneurs rather specifically, his vivid lyricism and persona attract listeners from all walks of life.  Raekwon’s storytelling ability is hailed by critics; his poetic technique is admired by intellectuals, and his psychedelic references engage hipsters and coeds everywhere…

With extensive experience touring the world, as Raekwon’s audience continues to expand so does his eccentric kingpin aura…  Manifesting in the physical dimension for one night only in Philly- Thursday February 28th @ The Blockley– don’t miss this chance to ‘witness the God’.
