Yea, he may have done the unexpected when he recorded a collabo track with Kanye West and Justin Bieber, but Raekwon is still keeping it hood with his next project, a film called “C.R.E.A.M.”
The Wu-Tang Clan member recently revealed to New York Magazine, that’s he’ll be con-directing the upcoming film, named after the 1990s hit single of the same title, which stands for “Cash Rules Everything Around Me.”
“I’m working on a movie called ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ that I co-directed with one of my partners. We teamed up with [Damon] Dash,” Rae told the mag. “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, but I just want to continue to stay in my zone, stay focused and keep working.”
The veteran rapper didn’t give too many details about the project, but did say that he plans to stay behind the scenes for it, meaing you won’t see him on screen.
“I’m playing the outskirts on this one because I kind of feel like that’s where I’m at. You know, I don’t know. At this point, I probably won’t be in it, but we don’t know,” Rae said, “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.”
It’s unclear if the project has started production already, but Rae did reveal, via Twitter (@Raekwon) last week, that fans will get a sneak peak very soon.
“Believe it or not hopefully this week and nyc we will be shooting a trailer for the movie C.R.E.A.M so lookout for it!” he wrote.
