The New Wu feat. Ghostface Killah & Method Man – Raekwon

Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Raekwon.  What’s not to like about this line-up from three members of the Wu-Tang Clan?

This video takes place in two different settings: on the streets and in the club. On the streets Raekwon is being spied on by the cops. He captures one of them and threatens to kill him (that’s the extent of the plot). In the club, it’s a big party with many special guests — like RZA, The Alchemist, MoeRoc and Mad Linx, to name a few.

Of course, no video would be complete without a few product placements, too.  The most notable occurs around 1:30 on the bottom right of the screen — there’s a guy wearing a Louis Vuitton jacket and hat, which is worth well over $2,000.

This track is so hot, I heard it a few months back and it just slays.
