Legendary Wu Tang Clan rhyme slinger Raekwon has announced he will be playing two North Island shows in June. Fingers crossed the MC will treat fans to classic Wu Tang jams, as well as joints from his illustrious solo career including his most recent offering, 2017’s The Wild. To sweeten the deal, OG rapper Slick Rick will be joining Raekwon for his Auckland appearance. Tickets for both shows went on sale last night, more info below...

Press release:

In massive news, inimitable hip-hop legends Slick Rick and Raekwon will be on New Zealand shores for a co-headline show this June!

It will be the first time Slick Rick has hit a stage down under, so The Ruler will no doubt be bringing his A-game. The original storyteller, his tracks have been talked about, sampled, remixed, reworked and loved the world over since the release of his 1988 breakout album ‘The Great Adventures of Slick Rick’.

Joining Slick Rick on stage is Wu-Tang’s very own Raekwon. Emerging as part of the Clan’s on their 1993 classic ‘Enter the Wu-Tang’, Raekwon really stamped himself as a serious solo MC on his impeachable debut ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx’. The album debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at #4, and featured huge tracks such as “Heaven and Hell” and “Criminology”.  More recently he dropped his new album ‘The Wild’ featuring more industry heavyweights CeeLo Green, G-Eazy and Lil Wayne.

Between them, they’ve worked with OutKast, Busta Rhymes, Ghostface Killah and more, and they’ll both be here in the same place, at the same time, playing tracks that helped define hip-hop.
