The @Raekwon Episode



Show Bill by Theotis Jones

Raekwon stopped by to drop some Lost Jewels on the crew as we tried to cram 20 years of rich history into one show.

The Mr. MFN eXquire (@MRMFNeXquire) x Smoke DZA (@smokedza) Episode



What a show. This week’s episode of The Combat Jack Show was cray. We had Brooklyn MC, Mr. MFN eXquire, his consigliere Kenneth Montgomery and Harlem’s own Smoke DZA in the building. eXquire has come a long way since the last time he was on the show. The Universal Republic signee discusses his transition to a major label, who influenced him to sign on the dotted and his take on the current state of hip hop (Chief Keef too). Also on this ep, Up North Trip’s very own Ev Boogie and DJ 7L from Get  On Down stopped by to give a sneak peek of the new Raekwon The Chef Purple Tape Box Set. This is a must have for all the stuck in the 90′s cats and hip-hop fans. Be sure to check out Complex next Monday for an exclusive feature on the box set which will also be available for purchase.

Raekwon – “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. II” Album Review


Holy fucking Moley! Not even a day after Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint 3” leaking and I’m downloading getting another advance listening copy of Raekwon’s “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Pt II” from my same friends in high places. Since the big wigs in the industry continue in recognizing me as a world renown taste maker and want my take on it, it’s only right that I share those much valued thoughts with you. (more…)
