Tags and topics realted to this article include Wu-Tang Clan, KRS-One, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon.
Raekwon's new group showed a lot of musical skill as it performed some of their new music, which embraces a lot of the Wu-Tang beats and lyrical styles.
They also performed many of the Wu-Tang classics from the "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)" album. Such songs like, "C.R.E.A.M," "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing To Fuck With," "Can It Be All So Simple," "Protect Ya Neck," "M.E.T.H.O.D. Man" and "Bring The Ruckus."
This was the first time that Raekwon ever performed in Eureka. He is touring the bay area, which are also places he's never toured before.
"I like rocking for 100 to 400 people," Raekwon said. "I like to make a statement and see where people respect my music."
Even though Eureka does not have the population of the big cities where Wu-Tang performed before, The Chef still decided to bring the Clan to the North Coast.
"I liked it here in Eureka, even though the system was all fucked up, it had nothing to do with the vibe I got from the crowd. We are the type of rappers who go anywhere and who will never stand anyone up. As far as I know it can be my biggest market."
At the moment Raekwon and his group, Stomach, Polite, PC and Cigars, are on a promo tour--heading to San Juan, San Jose and San Francisco. Their new album, which took one year to record and consists of 16 songs, will come out on Dec. 16.
"This album is more lyrical and more gutter," said Raekwon. "It's seasoned-up, which makes it more exciting and special. It's more on the conscious side because I talk to the neighborhood where I came from. I talk to it like a person."
"It also contains a lot of storytelling and dialogue,
classic Raekwon. As far as beats go, we have new producers and old producers all mashed together to one."
