Raekwon Drops ‘Lost Jewlry’ Artwork and Release Date


The Chef is cooking up a New Year’s feast.

Raekwon will release his Lost Jewlry EP on Jan. 8, 2013. The “Butter Knives” spitter released the artwork (pictured above) for his latest batch of music with the EP’s release date details. The artwork is icey thanks to several diamond encrusted chains, rings and watches. The standout bling would have to be the gold Wu-Tang watch, which he says was a Rolex.

In the lead-up to Raekwon’s new EP, the Chef has been dropping appetizers before his main course. Two laid back, soul-sampling tracks have made their way online. “Neither One of Us” samples the Gladys Knight & the Pips track of the same name, while “Never Say Goodbye” is also a smooth burner in comparison to previous Rae tracks like “Incarcerated Scarfaces” or the more recent “Alphabet Soup.” While these tracks haven’t been confirmed for the Lost Jewlry EP, they definitely give a good taste of what’s on the menu.

Rae also promises to dish his new studio LP details on Jan. 1, so stay tuned.
