Yo, who's hungry? We're fucking starving. But before you start eating faces and torturing people, calm down. Raekwon the Chef is coming to feed Miami some meaty beats.
The Wu-Tang Clan man will be stomping through The Stage on Saturday, March 9. He's bound to exhibit some "Fly.International.Luxurious.Art," because he'll be swooping through just before he drops his new LP, F.I.L.A.
And more than likely, he'll spit some sick lines from back in the day to satisfy all you killer bees from the front to the back.
Raekwon announced the upcoming album via Twitter on the first of the year with a vague projected release date, followed a few weeks later by the drop of a 12-track mixtape, Lost Jewelry. By the sound of the free download, the Chef can still heat up the fat lines in his kitchen. We're looking forward to hearing what the guy has lined up for the main course.
For a complete music menu, his performance will be backed up with support from Saheed, Pages & the Out of Hand band, and DJ Heron. There are lots of drink specials and bottles available for the big spenders, because this is a hip-hop show. But even if you just get full and high off the rhymes, you'll be set.
Raekwon with Saheed, Pages & the Out of Hand Band, and DJ Heron. Saturday, March 9. The Stage, 170 NE 38th St., Miami. Ages 21 and up. The party starts at 10 p.m., and tickets cost $20 plus fees via raekwonthestage9.bpt.me, $35 at the door. Call 305-576-9577, or visit thestagemiami.com.
