Hip Hop Vibe’s Hottest MCs in the Game: Raekwon

21 Oct

RaekwonThe long-awaited comeback of Raekwon has been pushed back for some time. Well, this year it came and for most, it was well worth the wait. Despite his release of two albums since, Raekwon is probably best-known for his debut album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.

In 2007, Raekwon announced his next album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II. The album, like its predecessor was critically-acclaimed upon its release and has managed to sell fairly well, also. But, for the most part, Rae has not received much airplay. Most of his exposure has come from the internet.

Of nearly all of the hip hop rumors that flood the internet on a daily basis, Raekwon’s name usually finds a way to come up. He has been rumored to sign with Bad Boy Records, rumored to be working on his next album, and rumored to be working with Method Man and Ghostface on a collaboration album.

While Raekwon’s music is not getting much play, he has managed to stay in the news and he has commented on almost every event taking place in hip hop. Aside from all of that, his album has received just as much acclaim as Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3. In 2009, there have not been many rappers that are as hot as Raekwon.
