Raekwon started the new year off on a musical foot, dropping his ‘Unexpected Victory’ mixtape on New Year’s Day. Originally slated for release on Christmas Day, the 17-track mixtape features appearances from Mobb Deep and Busta Rhymes, plus production from the likes of 9th Wonder, Scram Jones and Statik Selektah.

In promotion of the project, Rea collaborated with New York-based company Mighty Healthy to release a collection of limited edition shirts bearing his name and the name of the mixtape, all positioned behind a gold microphone. Only 100 shirts were printed and made available to those who purchased a hard copy of ‘Unexpected Victory.’

The album premiered on DatPiff, and is a precursor to a host of forthcoming projects.” I got a lot of things coming up,” he said in a interview recently. “You got the 20-year Wu anniversary about to jump off. You know we scheming on some things. Going back on the road, doing something legendary again.”

2012 will also mark the release of the Wu-Tang Clan member’s new album, ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx III,’ due out this spring.
