In a interview with NYMag.com, Raekwon discussed his upcoming album ‘Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang’ and his recent collaboration with Justin Bieber and Kanye West. During the interview, Rae revealed that he and Dame Dash have been working on a feature-length film called ‘C.R.E.A.M.’
“I’m working on a movie called, ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ that I co-directed with one of my partners,” he said. “We teamed up with [Damon] Dash. Y’all gonna be hearing more about this movie that we’re putting together called, ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ It’s called Cash Rules Everything Around Me. It’s a lot of things transpiring right now.” (NYMag.com)
Although the Chef reviled only a few details about the project, he indicated that he would remain behind the camera for the project as a co-director. He said that his primary goal is to best capture the story from an outsider’s point of view and craft a classic feature.
“I’m playing the outskirts on this one because I kind of feel like that’s where I’m at,” he explained. “At this point, I probably won’t be in it, but we don’t know. I want to more or less capture the scenes from the outside looking in, because I want it to be something that people say is a classic, and they respect the storyline of where we went with it. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, even when we was making Cuban Linx II, I was already making it my business to obligate time to that, to putting the script together. It’s where it needs to be right now. So it’s just a lot going on, man. I’m just trying to be a machine. A roller coaster machine, man.” NYMag.com
