“Straight Outta Compton” has demonstrated to studio execs that rap biopics can be extremely profitable, thus opening the door for movies about groups like the Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, Run-DMC, & The Beastie Boys. Raekwon, for one, wants to make a Wu-Tang movie happen.
“When we make a Wu movie, bet your ass its gonna be serious,” he said at his shoe release in Manhattan this week. “Because we gotta tell the truth. And I think that’s what I love about the ‘Straight Outta Compton’ movie is that they told the truth. When we do get to that level and it happens, it has to be the real story. It’s gonna be an interesting one, cause I said – RZA hit the lotto one day. He knew who he had, but he didn’t know what he had. So let’s keep it right there.”
Raekwon has a documentary coming out soon called “The Purple Files” commemorating the 20th anniversary of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. While there are no official plans for a Wu-Tang picture yet, “Straight Outta Compton” had the full support of Dr. Dre & Ice Cube, and if Raekwon can round up a few Wu-Tang Clan members to help him pitch the movie to studios, it could become a real possibility.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of Raekwon’s solo album ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx,’ which released on purple cassette tapes, Packer Shoes and Diadora have teamed up for a special edition sneaker.
This time around the shoe will draw inspiration from Raekwon’s first solo project, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, which was released on a purple cassette tape. They will be using the Diadora N.9000 which will be crafted from Purple suede. ‘1995’ is also embroidered on the sides, while a track listing can be found on the interior of each shoe. Touches of Grey are used to add some contrast, while a translucent Purple outsole is present to complete the theme.
Sneaker customizer, @_Theheyyman_, is honoring the Wu Tang member’s first solo album with a purple inspired Air Jordan 5, which features Wu Tang branding and two cassette tapes in place of the Jumpman logo on the heel.
Apparently, these were made specifically for Raekwon himself, as well as two different pairs black and gold pair of 6s, which you can check out below.
