Raekwon is set to star in "The Coalition,"
a movie that centers around New York's lucrative construction business and how
it is exploited by minority non-union labor.
The movie, described as a "modern day 'On
The Waterfront'," centers around one man's quest to go against a city's
largest and most dangerous coalition group, the SBM - "Survival of the
Black Man" coalition.
The story was written by Joseph Ariola, a long
time member of the Operating Engineers Union in N.Y.C.
The Coalition starts filming late June in New
Raekwon is also finished up a solo album, tentatively
titled Icewater, scheduled for release later this year.
