.@GhostfaceKillah Has Scumbag Friends Who Almost Let Him Drown

Seriously, you see Ghostface about to drown and you play with the life preserver instead of throwing it to him? You know how many Wu fans would stomp that guy to death if Ghost had died? I hope this story was exaggerated to make it entertaining. If not, Ghost needs new friends.

.@Raekwon talks about @GhostfaceKillah executive producing the next @WuTangClan project

In addition to the great news that there is a new Wu project in the works, the news that Ghost is quarterbacking the whole situation is icing on the cake. For those who don’t know, Ghost is one of the best beat pickers in the crew. In this interview, Raekwon also touches on what we mentioned here in a prior post: the number of children named after Raekwon, including the apparent revelation that multiple college basketball players are named Raekwon (here’s one). In addition to the recently drafted Raekwon McMillan, there’s also a college football player named Raekwon on the come-up.

Almost 1,500 Children Were Named @Raekwon Between 1995-1999 including Miami Dolphins rookie @Kwon_daTRUTH

ESPN ran a fascinating story on freshly drafted Miami Dolphins rookie Raekwon McMillan, who was named after Wu-Tang general Raekwon. The story also touches on the fact that almost 1500 children were named Raekwon in the United States between 1995 and 1999, the peak of Wu’s musical influence. Here at WuTangBook, we hope the younger Raekwon goes on to massive success in the NFL and lives up to his legendary namesake!

RIP Ol’ Dirty, Wu-Tang really is for the children!
