Chef Stories

Interviews, Published Material

I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my all time favorite rap artists a couple weeks ago, Raekwon the Chef, for my first Complex Magazine online feature.  It was such a dope first assignment for Complex, wow.  We talked for about two hours, going through a list of his 25 essential songs that I put together for the feature.  He was completely cool and engaged, and had a bunch of crazy stories to tell about the making of his classic songs, videos, and collaborations (see Raekwon above with Mobb Deep and Nas during the creation of “Eye for an Eye”).  Lots of funny moments too, and various other behind the scenes jewels.  Plus, he signed an autograph for my son as “Uncle Chef”!!!!!  So sick.  Here’s the feature on Complex Magazine’s website…

Raekwon Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Thanks to Raekwon and Complex Magazine for allowing me to put together this historic hip hop feature!  Peep the picture of me and the god above.  Salute!  And make sure you check out Raekwon’s new album, Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang, it’s in stores now.  Cop/preview it HERE.  Listen to one of my favorite tracks off the album “Ferry Boat Killaz” produced by The Alchemist below, it’s a banger…

Also, make sure you flip through Complex’s Top 50 Hip Hop Magazine Covers HERE.  And in memory of the late Biggie Smalls (he died on 3/9/97), read his last Source Magazine interview HERE.
