Raekwon Inks New Publishing Deal, ‘F.I.L.A.’ Album Arriving in Fall
Raekwon has been steadily making a name for himself outside of the Wu-Tang brand with his solo endeavors. Now the Chef has cooked up a new deal with Memory Lane Music Group and their unique division Scion Three Music.
The 44-year-old veteran rhymer has inked a worldwide publishing administration agreement with MLMG for his sixth solo effort, 'F.I.L.A. -- Fly International Luxurious Art.'
So what does that mean? It means that Rae will be collecting more C.R.E.A.M. in the future.
"Raekwon is a rap legend,” says MLMG President Mark Spier. “He’s been a driving force in the genre since the hip-hop explosion of the 90s, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with him.”
'F.I.L.A.' is scheduled to hit stores this fall through Ice H20/Caroline and will feature several guest appearances.
In addition, Raekwon will perform at the 10th anniversary of the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival this Saturday (July 12). Fellow rappers Jay Electronica, Joey Bada$$ and the Pro Era crew are also performing at the event.
