Raekwon at 92YTribeca performing snippets from the seminal classic Only Built For Cuban Links / Video from YouTube user BLUCHEEZ
Rapper Raekwon of Staten Island’s infamous and groundbreaking Wu-Tang Clan was at 92YTribeca (with our ”ill sound system”) last night for Noisemakers with Peter Rosenberg, whose Hot 97 show Real Late with Peter Rosenberg is a must listen to in New York City’s Hip-Hop circles. With the release date of Raekwons new album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II and ”its increasingly mythical reputation” fast approaching, the event last night was charged with anticipation. For those that missed it, Grandgood has audio from the event available for listening and download.
Twitter user @zeusXXII cleverly noted that “Noisemakers @92ytribeca should be called inside the rapper’s studio, raekwon killed it last night...”
But the cleverness didn’t end there. “This is the New Apollo [Theater]” Raekwon declared. To which Peter Rosenberg responded” “The Jewish Apollo? The Jewpollo?”
So now you know.
Photographer Richard Louissant has a great set of photos from the show.
