After releasing his acclaimed Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…Pt. II last year, and joining forces with Ghostface Killah and Method Man for Wu-Massacre this year, Staten Island, New York emcee Raekwon has announced a firm date for his fifth solo album. “Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang is done, it’s coming in March. It’s fire,” said Raekwon on his own H20TV YouTube channel.

The EMI Records-distributed effort is said to feature Wu-Tang Clan affiliates Method Man, GZA, Inspectah Deck and others, along with The Roots’ Black Thought, according to VIBE. Additionally, Raekwon has revealed that veteran collaborator Nas will be featured. (November 2)
