In 1993, hip-hop would be forever changed by the emergence of the gritty, Shaolin style of the seminal rap clique, the Wu-Tang Clan. Raekwon (the Chef), one of the nine talented emcees, shined as the purist of lyricists. When the time came for him to release his first solo album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (1995), hip-hop, once again, underwent a momentous transformation. Rae’s ground breaking debut album helped to bring the flavour of flossing to wax as well as the use of the moniker among Wu brethren and other prominent emcees.
Diamond Supply Co. and Centre are hyped to sponsor Raekwon The Chef's show this Friday in Vancouver BC at Venue Night Club! Purchase your online tickets today by clicking here, or hit up Red Cat, Zulu, Beatstreet, DIPT to get your hardcopy tickets!

The World Premiere of Skate Trades is tonight at the Fox Cabaret in Vancouver! Skate Trades is a short film that explains the interrelationship between skateboarding and trades work by showcasing skaters who've found that their passion for skating is symbiotic with their careers. Jason Bothe, a.k.a. Renee Renee, made the film a reality after the Canadian government asked him to create a film that would connect with the younger generations in an effort for them to consider careers in the trades industry.
Check out the trailer for the film and see you there tonight for a free showing of the film at 8pm!
