Raekwon performing a solo set at The Blockley 2/28
Raekwon will be performing sans Clan at the Blockley on Thursday. Respected as much for his solo work as he is for his involvement with Wu-Tang, this spring Raekwon will be juggling solo shows and full-band festival sets. Of course, a busy spring tour schedule could be expected from a man whose work was once described as “gangsta Iliad” by the Miami New Times and who was praised as a “Greek god” by Kanye West. Indeed, Raekwon, or Corey Woods, is something of a legend in the hip hop world. He has been with the Wu-Tang Clan since 1992 and released his first solo debut in 1995. He has two solo studio albums due out—one projected for 2013 and another for 2014. For the current tour, Raekwon will be performing new material from his January EP, Lost Jewelry. Tickets and information for the all ages show ($4 surcharge for under 21) are available here. Below, stream Lost Jewelry courtesy of Datpiff.
