The Chef will be making his return to hip-hop next year. The New York native took to Instagram to announce his LP is finished and will be released at some point in 2017. The Wu-Tang Clan member captioned a photo of him getting a haircut with, “LP IS DONE !!!!! #blades is sharpened. # 2017 release litted !!!!! I will always appreciate real rap…..#factual.”
The LP will be his seventh studio album, and his first release since Fly International Luxurious Art in 2015, after an elongated buildup to the release. Rae did not disclose any other information regarding the project. We hope that his Only Built 4 Cuban Linx partner Ghostface Killah makes an appearance on the album, as the duo were recently on tour together. He also posted pictures to Instagram with producer A-Trak and Justin Bieber.
The Chef is definitely cooking. 2017 can’t come soon enough.
