Noisemakers with Peter Rosenberg + Raekwon

Recorded at tonight’s Noisemakers show hosted by Peter Rosenberg. Raekwon touches on a multitude of topics like how Wu-Tang Clan started, the making of “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…,” how the mindset of keeping the production within the Clan early on may have been a detriment on later albums, Rza being almost Chinese, the turmoil within the Clan, their music’s penetration into white suburbia, the infamous Biggie skit and other things. All in all, the 90 minute interview + short impromptu performance was amazing.

Did I forget to mention that he previews a snippet off the new album “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II?” The track is called House of Flying Daggers and it’s produced by J-Dilla. And it’s dope! Hopefully, you listen to the whole interview to get at the track but if you’re a fiend like me, you’ll want to know that the preview is on Part 2 at the 31:30 mark. The new album is going to be crazy!
