Raekwon Talks New "F.I.L.A." LP, Refers To The Album As A "Lifestyle Project"

Raekwon hoping for a Wu-Tang Clan reunion album, says fans can expect his "F.I.L.A." album this June.

Raekwon’s recent Lost Jewlry mixtape may have been a highly praised release, but according to the Wu-Tang spitter, the project was merely an appetizer leading up to the release of his new LP this summer. While chopping it up with HipHopSince1987.com, Raekwon revealed that his next LP titled F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) will serve as a “lifestyle project” that the world can relate to.

“I got another project coming out, which is the LP cause Lost Jewlry was basically an appetizer mixtape. To really get everybody to just get ready for me,” Raekwon explained. “So we wanted to drop something that we know that will make the heads turn like ‘Yo, Rae got it together on this right here.’ So you know, the next project is called F.I.L.A. F-I-L-A, which the acronym is basically Fly International Luxurious Art. That’s my next project that’s coming out in June. That one is a lifestyle project. It’s gonna be hot. I just got to the level of finishing it up and I’m feeling real good about this.”

After sharing his thoughts on a possible Wu-Tang Clan biopic, the rapper again spoke on a possible Wu-Tang Clan reunion album and shared that everyone would have to be “comfortable” for such an album to be made.

“That right there is in the makings and it’s a lot of negotiations going on,” said Raekwon. “Process of really making everybody comfortable. We’re praying that that works. You know what I mean? That [it] works out in the greatest way. Everything has to be right. When you dealing with nine guys and you splitting the pot nine ways, it gotta make sense. Cause we got children now.”

Raekwon’s Lost Jewlry EP was released in January of this year and featured guest appearances from Maino, Freddie Gibbs, and more.

    don't worry Rae will fuck it up like he's fucked up ** everything ** since OB4CL... and you dipshits who think OB4CL2 ** sounded good ** need to listen on decent headphones or a stereo-- the mix/mastering was totally fucking fugazy. FACT.

    • wow

  • wont lie

    "sorry we're not going to always look like we did in 94'" Probably doesn't help his diet consists of drugs, liquor and cigarettes.

    floundering fat fuck, where the ICEWATER at?!?!? "Wu Massacre" was dogshit... "Shaolin V. Wu Tang" was dogshit... "OB4CL2" was pretty good though the mix was dogshit... chance of Rae making another hot solo = zero.

    • narcotik

      your on fucking crack rocks if u think shaolin vs wu-tang wasnt a good album

    • Anonymous

      shaolin vs wutang was heavy

    • wow

      OB4CL2 was a monster that even i didnt expect and im a huge wu fan. sha v wu was decent..wu massacre was below average..but dont even put dog shit next to ob4cl2 that was a beast

    • Chill son

      I disagree, and if you're basing an album primarily of mixing, then you're wasting a lot of time with your opinion on something that small, as opposed to the overall feel of the album. OB4CL2 was dope, and panned out waaaay better than anybody had anticipated, especially the non wu-heads and ex wu heads. I agree though, Shaolin Vs Wutang was a HUGE disappointment, Wu Massacre was about average. I think Rae can do another good solo album. He's definitely maintaining his status in the rap game.

    Y'all motherfuckers need to hurry up and get "comfortable." I know it's coming from a fan's perspective and not reality, but fuck the pot and your kids. Just fucking record some music and release it. Your family might look back 20 years from now at how well you provided for them. The rest of the world is going to look at the music you made, or failed to make.

  • kennyken

    Hope his raps have a little more substance than on the last album. He's dripping swagoo but just no substance.

  • Kazimierz
