Founding Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon at Bar None tomorrow
In an inexplicable piece of happenstance, one of the most famous and respected rap artists in the world will be performing in downtown Springfield tomorrow night -- Tuesday, May 17th -- in a bar that can’t even legally admit 100 people. Yes, Raekwon the Chef himself will be, um, “cooking up some marvelous shit to get your mouth watering” this week at Bar None (427 E. Monroe), as part of Torch Tuesdays, the club’s weekly hip-hop showcase.
The legendary Wu-Tang stalwart made his debut on the nine-man crew’s massively influential 1993 disc, Enter the Wu-Tang and threw his hat in the ring as a solo artist in ‘95 with Only Built For Cuban Linx, still widely considered a high-water mark for both gangsta rap and hip-hop in general. In ’09 he came out with the much anticipated Cuban Linx Pt. II and recently followed up last year’s full length Method Man-Ghostface Killah team-up by releasing the ambitious Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang.
