RaekwonRaekwon has teaming up with us at BallerStatus.com for an exclusive giveaway for our visitors for a chance to win a limited edition, autographed copy of the Wu-Tang vet’s recently released album, Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang. Or … a phone call from Raekwon himself.

Below is a little breakdown of the new album:

Raekwon The Chef has been going hard in the paint as of late, spreading the word about Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang. The rapper opted for a Puritan approach, returning to the essence on 2007’s 8 Diagrams: kung fu clips, spectral soul samples, cryptic criminal slang, dirt-nap drums, even a snippet of Ol Dirty Bastard. After all, as that late clown prince once said, “They like it raw.” Like its immediate predecessor, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2, Raekwon’s modus operandi on Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang is to make you forget the decade-era fugue that followed Wu-Tang Forever. Out of the clouds of smoke and “40 slammin’ while eating salmon,” Raekwon possesses a crystalline vision. The new album is his successful quest to return to the days when it was simple, blessed with the wisdom to know which philosophies work.

So, in suport of the new record, we are giving away three limited edition, autographed copies, and one of those three will also receive a call from the one and only, Chef Raekwon.

Contest has ended. The winner will be notified via email.

Make sure to follow Raekwon on Twitter @Raekwon, and cop Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang at iTunes.
