Raekwon spoke to Billboard.com on his new signee, Toronto rapper JD Era, a biopic in developpment, and celebrating twenty years with Wu-Tang Clan.
On JD Era:
On JD Era:
"We heard he was a cat that had been on the scene for a long time -- this was even before I knew that he knew the Drake guys, I automatically [say], 'Let me hear something,' and I was blown away. He had a nice little style, but on top of it he was still underground, but he was still able to be mainstream. And as a businessman, I have to look at both sides."
On a biopic in development, which he says will star Erykah Badu and Cee Lo Green as his parents:
"[They] had an opportunity to see the script. They read it, and they were blown away."
"It's a life story that paints a picture of an urban guy in the inner city," Raekwon continues, "and all they know is they wanna get out of here one way or another, whether they're making money in the street or whether they get a job. There are just so many obstacles you have to go through to learn how to survive the streets, because you want this green so bad."
On the 20th anniversay of Wu-Tang:
"We've been sitting around talking. We got something lined up. I can't speak on it yet because it's still confidential until it's actually solidified."
