Raekwon breaks down the Purple Tape with Crooked I

After a recent Rock The Bells press conference Crooked I from Slaughterhouse got Raekwon the Chef to sit down for a brief interview.  Rae explains the purpose behind his debut cassette tapes color and explains how Compton’s own Mc Eiht came to have a small cameo in the 36 Chambers classic Can it Be All So Simple video.

To me Can it Be All So Simple was the best record on the classic 36 Chambers.  Over the Gladys Knight sample you can hear the foreshadowing of Ghostface & Raekwon’s Wu-Gambino persona’s (Tony Starks & Lex Diamonds) they would take on over the next few years showcased best on albums like Only Built 4 Cuban Linx & Ironman.  Enjoy the video directed by Hype Williams and lookout for that Mc Eiht cameo.
