In a recent interview with NYMag.com’s Jason Richards, Raekwon discussed his upcoming album Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang and his recent collaboration with Justin Bieber and Kanye West. During the interview, the Wu-Tang general revealed that he and Dame Dash have been working on a feature-length film called C.R.E.A.M.
“I’m working on a movie called C.R.E.A.M. that I co-directed with one of my partners,” he said. “We teamed up with [Damon] Dash. Y’all gonna be hearing more about this movie that we’re putting together called C.R.E.A.M. It’s called Cash Rules Everything Around Me. It’s a lot of things transpiring right now.” (NYMag.com)
Although the Chef divulged few details about the project itself, he did indicated that he would remain behind the camera for the project as a co-director. He said that his primary goal with the project is to best capture the story from an outsider’s point of view and craft a classic feature.
“I’m playing the outskirts on this one because I kind of feel like that’s where I’m at,” he explained. “At this point, I probably won’t be in it, but we don’t know. I want to more or less capture the scenes from the outside looking in, because I want it to be something that people say is a classic, and they respect the storyline of where we went with it. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, even when we was making Cuban Linx II, I was already making it my business to obligate time to that, to putting the script together. It’s where it needs to be right now. So it’s just a lot going on, man. I’m just trying to be a machine. A roller coaster machine, man.” (NYMag.com)
