Today I take a look at this interesting collaboration which is about to take place

http://www.reppghhiphop.com/2010/08/16/kanye-x-chef-x-bieber/

The internet was buzzing Sunday (http://www.sohh.com/2010/08/raekwon_accepts_kanye_west_justin_bieber.html) with the news that Kanye West was looking to do a track with Justin Bieber and Raekwon. While the combination of someone who takes bottles to the head (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsjZvm7mYoI) without drinking and someone who takes bottles to the head and then pops off at the VMAs is already strange enough, the thought of someone like Raekwon, who back in the day would have taken bottles to both their heads, getting in the studio with those two is something that a year ago I would have never believed would happen, but with the way the Chef has been whoring himself out recently it wouldn’t be a surprise at all to see him big-upping the YouTube sensation.

It all started around the time Cuban Linx 2 was dropping, after having thrust himself (pause) into the media spotlight during the whole “8 Diagrams” mess (http://www.missinfo.tv/index.php/miss-info-exclusive-raekwon-reveals-the-turmoil-within-the-wu-tang-clan/), Shallah finally struck gold with the follow-up to his epic debut solo album. From that point on Raekwon went from member of the Wu-Tang most likely to fuck up an internet rapper who makes “mood music” (http://57thave.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/JB-337x450.jpg) to the only relevant member of a group that once saw Method Man do tracks with Limp Bizkit and star in the most unfunny sitcom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfMxwOQtX44) I’ve ever seen. From blogging for HipHopDX during the BET Awards, to grabbing Travis Barker for the deluxe edition of CL2 (bring them white boys out to buy that shit) to lending verses to anyone and everyone (Yelawolf, really? I mean come on Rae, raise your standards homie) this dude has taken the Wu-Tang name and once again made it synonymous with mainstream hip hop. For a group that hasn’t seen a video on MTV since “Cherchez La Ghost”….well, really since “Triumph”, Raekwon has somehow made himself relevant 13 years after anyone gave a shit about Wu-Tang, all while U-God is probably somewhere getting his golden arms ready wishing he could smack the shit outta the Chef for being so mainstream while Huey has been trying to do that his whole career and has failed miserably every time.


Is it a bad thing that Raekwon has completely sold out the Wu-Tang label for the sake of his own career? Shit it ain’t like he’s RZA and can compose movie scores or go chill with ninja masters in Japan for 6 months, all Rae got is his lyrics and without rapping he’d have to take one of those jobs that all the illegals in Arizona are working their asses off at right now since us lazy dumb Americans got all the time in the world to complain about them but no time to do any of the actual work they’re willing to do. Dude has clearly realized that he needs to feed his kids somehow and all he’s ever done is rap (well, there’s an assumption he’s done other work, but at this point in his life I doubt he wants to be tried by 12 OR carried by 6 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG--IRsHFwo)), so if hopping on garbage albums and spitting a quick 16 is gonna get him a check, then why the hell not? You know what doing a track with Justin Bieber is gonna do for Raekwon’s career? Think of all the 12 year old girls who are gonna at least recognize dude’s name after this, even if they skip the verse that they can’t understand one word of every time they bump the track.


Let the mafucka get paid cause unless you got a job offer for Lex Diamonds, you got no reason to hate on the choices he makes for himself and his family, and honestly, hearing a track with those three together might actually be dope, a Kanye beat with ‘Ye and Raekwon spitting and that hit-maker on the hook? Tell me that’s not the perfect combination for success, and hey anything to keep the Wu-Tang name relevant is always cool with me.

Whoever wrote that is a retarded elitist.

i got this theory, that every other artist on the Teflon Don album heard this and was like "yo, you gotta take this joint off and make it a bonus track cause the Chef killed EVERYONE on the whole album and we can't be having that"
