[NEWS] RAEKWON TO TELL HIS “CUBAN LINX LIFE”

WU-TANG CLAN’S Raekwon to tell his Cuban Link life through 1st Memoir in 2021.

Raekwon The Chef is now an official author. The Wu-Tang Clan Alum is scheduled to release his first book “The Story Of Raekwon in 2021.” The veteran rapper’s memoir will be published by Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster and New York Times bestselling author Anthony Bozza serves as Raekwon’s co-writer.

“This is my story, from being a wide-eyed kid full of hopes and dreams, through hard times and sadness and so many situations I’m amazed I survived,” Raekwon said in a press release. “This is all of it, the good, the bad, the ugly, the whole truth and nothing but.”

The book joins Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 3 album and The Purple Tape Filedocumentary in his arsenal of upcoming projects. Raekwon has confirmed the Doc to drop before the end of 2020.

“Definitely get ready for it before the beginning of next year,” he said. “We gonna be ready to surprise the world. So, it’s a couple of things that’s going on, but I’ll keep some of it under my hat until the time is permitted.”

He continued, “You guys are gonna go crazy when you see The Purple Tape Files documentary. It’s something to look forward to. I mean, we saw the Jordan shit. We saw Jordan’s documentary, so I think right now I’m next up when it comes to what the world is about the see. You’re gonna be pretty much be blown away.”

Raekwon hasn’t announced specific release dates for his memoir, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 3 or The Purple Tape Files. Earlier this year, he celebrated the 25th anniversary of the original Only Built 4 Cuban Linx LP.
