  • Shop Talk with Raekwon

    27,432 views 3 weeks ago
    For this episode of Shop Talk, Mass Appeal linked with Raekwon the Chef at Carmine Street Comics.

    "I'm always gonna take time to check out cartoons and look at comic books," said Raekwon shortly after strolling into Carmine Street Comics in NYC's West Village. "In this business you have to stay young."

    For the cover of Rae's seventh solo album The Wild the iconic Wu-Tang MC enlisted former Shaolin resident Dan Lish to create a comics-inspired post-apocalyptic urban wasteland. Although Meth is the Wu's biggest comic book head, Rae tapped into the graphic arts to portray his vision of NYC. "I'm almost the king of the jungle... I want the people to be animals... I feel like New York City has no identity when it comes to knowing what we created in the music business. I need New York to look twisted."

    "People look at Wu-Tang as superheroes," Rae says in our latest edition of Shop Talk. "When you see Raekwon the Chef, you're thinkin' a guy with the blades, that's nice with the blades on some karate shit. Tony Starks, Ironman, he like to hold them things, too. That iron! [Laughs]" Peep the video up top.

    ILL TIME is less of a web series and more of an instructional manual on life delivered by your favorite rappers. We employ special effects, props, and who knows what else to transport you from desk chair to classroom, as knowledge is dropped by PhD level street professors. Our favorite episode has the Flatbush Zombies making a literal Thug Waffle.
