Wu-Tang Clan producer/designer Mathematics discusses the new Wu record, Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues, which is out now via eOne. Sponsored by Pizza Trokadero, the Bookshelf, Planet Bean Coffee, Grandad’s Donuts, Freshbooks, and Hello Fresh Canada.
Raekwon the Chef is one of the fiercest MCs and hip-hop storytellers of all time. The Staten Island-bred artist is a member of the Wu-Tang Clan and has released classic albums on his own. His latest is Fly International Luxurious Art and is out now via his own Ice H2O imprint. I sat down with Rae at a listening party for F.I.L.A. at Red Bull Music Academy’s HQ in Toronto on May 22 and here, we discuss being a VIP, the Raekwon Canadian flag, sonic departures, some Wu-Tang fans are fantastic or fickle or stuck in the past, becoming successful early, nostalgia, the materialism on F.I.L.A. and tone deafness, making movies, what was up with A Better Tomorrow, whether or not Wu-Tang Clan have another classic left in them, if hip-hop is more revolutionary than rock music, the song “Revory (Wraith),” and then we out.
