For his upcoming project, titled The Purple Tape Files: The Documentary & Film, Wu-Tang Clan lyricist Raekwon will take the crowdfunding approach to help fund the documentary.
Fans can donate between $5 and $10,000 towards the creation of the film, which will take an in-depth look at Rae’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album “and its impact on modern pop culture.”
The rapper recently spoke on his “vision for the film” during an interview with Rolling Stone. In the interview, he revealed that he’ll share untold information about his solo debut, which was released nearly 20 years ago.
“Our vision for the film is for it to be as honest as possible, removing the filter from both ourselves and participants,” Raekwon said while speaking with Rolling Stone. “I plan to take viewers on a ride through the album from beginning to end. Beyond revealing untold information about the project and how it was created, the film will also bring to life the actual movie that happens within the album.”
Among the rewards fans can receive by donating to Raekwon’s crowdfunding campaign, featured on FanBacked.com, is a personal mixtape review by Raekwon, a 20th Anniversary Purple Tape sticker, and their name in the credits of The Purple Tape Files: The Documentary & Film.
The Purple Tape Files: The Documentary & Film is slated for completion in August of this year, and will be produced by Raj “Trini” Maharaj and Steve “Raze” Julien. The film will be released through Raekwon’s production company, Third Eye Vision.
