Although hip-hop fanatics are still raving about Raekwon‘s most recent solo effort, ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx … Pt. 2,’ The Chef is currently hard at work wrapping up his next project, ‘Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang.’ Originally intended to be a group album from Wu-Tang, the album will now feature Rae at the mike with a mix of guests and producers.

“Lyrically, you can expect a dude just going off,” Raekwon revealed to The BoomBox. “I’m gonna go off. I’m in my zone right now. I feel like, right now, I’m at the point where I know how to write again. Before I used to let a lot of things get to me. Worrying about what someone else may think, instead of really worrying about what I think and what I feel. So, now I’m where I need to be at. I been in shape for like the last three years. Still chubby gangsta [though].”

Raekwon was also in attendance at the Oct. 2 taping of the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards where the veteran rapper took part in a previously recorded cypher with emerging rappers Yelawolf and Wiz Khalifa. “I think BET do enough,” he told The BoomBox. “I ain’t gon’ never feel like they do a lot. They do enough. I guess everybody gotta keep it cordial to a degree when you’re dealing with television and I think they do a great job when it comes to that. Maybe I feel like we need to have a little bit more censorship going off of stuff. Be creative.”

No word on when exactly ‘Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang’ will be released in stores.
