Raekwon

The day is finally here, Raekwon fans. The Wu-Tang Clan spitter returns tonight with his latest project, Lost Jewlry, which boasts 12 brand-new tracks from the legendary lyricist. He's brought along some choice guests on here, including Freddie Gibbs and Maino, while the likes of Buckwild and Scram Jones provide the production.

You can consider this an appetizer to the full course meal that will be his upcoming full-length, F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art). So go ahead, click the links below to download Lost Jewlry and enjoy another killer project from the Chef. [Complex]

You can download via Sharebeast, or stream the Soundcloud and check out the tracklist below.

Speaking of Freddie Gibbs, he has a big NYC show coming up, a bunch of just-announced openers included. Raekwon plays a NYC show with Rakim in February.

Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks, who recently canceled a bunch of summer shows due to "recording commitments," has now added more shows to her summer schedule. Most of those are in Europe, but she was just added to the Hot 97 Summer Jam lineup which goes down in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium on June 3. The rest of the lineup includes Nicki MInaj, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Waka Flocka Flame, Young Jeezy, J. Cole, Wale, and more. Tickets for the fest are available. The full lineup is listed below.

UPDATE: She actually plays the Summer Jam pre-show in the parking lot with the even more impressive lineup of Pusha T, Big K.R.I.T., A$AP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, and Fred the Godson. Your Summer Jam ticket gets you into the pre-show.

In addition to her fickle live schedule, Azealia Banks continues to move around her schedule of releases as well. As of right now, she's planning to get her delayed 1991 EP out on May 29 digitally and June 12 physically via Interscope. The cover art for that EP is below. She'll follow it with the Fantastic mixtape, which is due out on July 4, and includes her recently dropped track, "Jumanji," which was produced by Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook. Grab that track above or stream it below. Finally, her debut full length, Broke With Expensive Taste, which is presumably the album she's been working on with Paul Epworth, is due out in September.

In other news, fresh off her feud with Iggy Azalea (who plays SOBs TONIGHT [5/17]), she's taken a stab at Lil Kim, who refused to collaborate with Azealia because Lil Kim wanted to write her own verse. Azealia had written it for her and insisted, "Everybody knows Lil Kim doesn't write her own raps." We already know that Kim's got beef with Nicki Minaj. Azealia, however, seems down with Nicki and would possibly collaborate with her, but thinks she should ditch the "ugly wigs and ugly costumes." Maybe they'll meet up when they both play Summer Jam next month. On the other hand, Azealia Banks has collaborated with Missy Elliot and Rye Rye on a remix of M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls." Look for that soon.

A list of all dates, Hot 97 Summer Jam lineup, 1991 cover art, and the "Jumanji" stream are below...

Raekwon

The last time Wu-Tang played NYC, Raekwon and Ghostface were both absent from the show. This disappointed some, but maybe they'll be at least partly satisfied when Rae plays with Ghostface soundalike Action Bronson, which he'll do Thursday (4/26) at BB Kings with Maino, Kofi Black, JD Era, Paypa, We Major, D. Chamberz and Troy Ave. Tickets are available.

The show is an extension on Raekwon's Unexpected Victory Tour which hit Chicago and SXSW and ended in Massachusetts last week. The show flier and a trailer for the show is below.

Raekown and the actual Ghostface Killah will share a stage at NXNE in Toronto this June, which Action Bronson is also playing.

GZA just played a NYC show with Bad Brains and has another coming up with Grupo Fantasma.
