(AllHipHop News) While in London Raekwon spoke with Rethunk. The interview included The Chef being asked which present day rap crew comes closest to his own legendary group Wu-Tang Clan.
“A lot of guys haven’t got their feet wet all the way. If I were to sit here and say, the closest would probably be Young Money,” said Rae. “Seeing the success of Drake, Wayne, Nicki – it’s only three of them though. It’s tough to compare because it’s nine of us. Out of the nine of us, it’s so many platinum and gold artists that came out of the group. I haven’t seen that lately.”
The “Wall To Wall” rapper also mentioned a West Coast collective. Rae added, “It’s a lot of guys out there that’s creating their own movement. You got TDE doing their thing.”
Raekwon is releasing his sixth solo album, Fly International Luxurious Art, this year. The project will feature appearances by French Montana, Busta Rhymes, Estelle, Melanie Fiona, and others. Look for F.I.L.A. to hit stores April 28.
