Austin promoters Knuckle Rumbler and ScoreMore Entertainment are bringing Wu-Tang Clan member and hip hop icon Raekwon to Red 7 in Austin on Tuesday, April 26. It will be a rare opportunity to see Raekwon in such an intimate venue.
That’s why we’re hooking up one lucky fan with a pair of tickets to this show. We will conduct a raffle on Facebook. Just click LIKE every time you see a link to this post on our wall. We will pick a winner on Monday night, April 25, and announce them on the morning of the show on our Facebook page.
Raekwon is currently on tour in support of his latest album, Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang, released in March of 2011. The album features Wu-Tang members of course, but also Black Thought (The Roots), Nas and Rick Ross among others. More new music from Raekwon is expected later this year. Online rumors say it will be another Cuban Linx installment. Time will tell.
Despite his full catalog, most will know Raekwon from his popular versus in Wu-Tang classsics and his breakout hit, “Incarcerated Scarfaces” from his 1995 release, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Refresh your memory or get familiar here with the video below.
Red 7 is located at 611 E. 7th St. in Austin. Rap groups Dubb Sicks, Crew 54 and LOEGz open. Popular Austin DJ Notion will be spinning throughout the night. This show is all ages. Advance tickets are $17 and $20 the day of the show at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased through Front Gate Tickets here.
