As we approach the release of Vast Aire‘s highly anticipated “Ox 2010 – A Street Odyssey” Vast Aire has teamed up with the second half of Cannibal Ox Vordul Mega, and the legendary Raekwon for the single “Thor’s Hammer”. Vast Aire has leaked a number of tracks prior to the album, including “Nomad” and “I Don’t Care” with Capadonna amongst others. Look out for an exclusive Vast Aire interview with Hip-Hop Kings in the very near future. You can listen to Vast Aire ft Raekwon and Vordul Mega – Thor’s Hammer on the audio player below.

A high profile line up combines to assist Raekwon on his latest single “Rock N Roll Remix” which has been leaked yesterday onto the Internet. Raekwon is planning his “Only Built For Cuban Linx 3” album, and rumours suggest he’s also working on a follow-up to “Shaolin vs Wu Tang” with another album in 2011 which will feature Just Blaze and Kanye West amongst others. In the meantime you can listen to Raekwon ft DJ Khaled, Busta Rhymes, Game and Pharrell – Rock N Roll Remix on the audio player below.

I never thought I’d see a Wu-Tang Clan and Dipset collaboration, but we have a brand new single from Raekwon ft Jim Jones and Ghostface called “Rock N Roll”. The track is taken from Raekwon’s forthcoming album Shaolin vs Wu Tang which will be released on March 8th 2011. Raekwon is also touring the U.K in March to promote the album at five venues listed below. Hip-Hop Kings will be posting more information on the forthcoming Shaolin vs Wu Tang album as it becomes available.

Here is another interview from The Hip Hop Chronicle, this time Sumit manages to speak with Raekwon at his mixtape listening party. Raekwon is releasing his “Brinks Boys” mixtape shortly, and he is asked about trend setting of sequel albums. More information suggests that GZA is featured on the “Just For Laughs” track as well. You can watch the Raekwon interview with The Hip Hop Chronicle below.
Here is a remix I found thanks to HipHopUpdate. It’s basically a megamix of Alicia Keys and Jay-Z’s track “Empire State of Mind” which features Hip-Hop legends Raekwon, CNN and Styles P. The remix has been lead by DJ Green Lantern who, as always, does an excellent job. You can listen to Raekwon, CNN and Styles P deliver their respective verses over the beat. You can listen to Alicia Keys x Styles P x CNN x Raekwon – Empire State Of Mind 2 on the player below.

Following the legendary collaboration from Masta Ace and Edo.G on their album “Arts and Entertainment” AllHipHop was speaking with Raekwon, whilst on a phone coversation with Kool G Rap, confirmed they were seriously considering recording a new album together. There is currently no title for the album, but we’ll be following any news from either artist closely, and hopefully 2010 will kick off with a new album from Raekwon and Kool G Rap. You can watch the AllHipHop video form Raekwon and Kool G Rap on their new album on the player below.

Hip-Hop Kings previously announced a new album from Redman x Method Man x Ghostface which was currently untitled. The video promo for the album was a series one of three, and was inspired by the David Fincher movie Seven. The second edition has now been released which has an equally disturbing scene, this time highlighting Sparks (Ghostface) as the man involved. You can watch the trailer for Method Man x Ghostface x Raekwon – The Wu Massacre on the player below.
