Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan took over Ritual nightclub last week, marking the Chef’s 2nd time in Ottawa in less than a year. The Staten Island rapper admitted an affinity for the North North – his record company, iceh20, just signed two Canadian artists (JD Era & Gangis Khan AKA Camoflauge) and has an new office in Toronto.
Canadian acts Arly Marv, Script & 6th Letter hit the stage and their presence was recognized. Surprise guest & Wu-Tang protégé LA the Darkman tore the club down and got the crowd into a Wu state of mind. The show started with the infamous Wu chant as everyone pressed up against the cages waiting for the legendary music icon. Accompanied by JD Era, Raekwon brought that classic, authentic New York hip-hop to the National Capital for one of the most memorable live experiences so far in 2012.
