The Staten Island emcee, who has been one of the Wu-Tang Clan‘s most outspoken members, announced the new deal to K-Dubasis and DJ Biggmann of OnAirIdiots.com.

“The project is vicious right now,” Raekwon said. “It’s done. I just closed my deal that I signed with EMI. I just signed off yesterday, and we made everything official.EMI is the home; they gave me a nice piece of what I needed.”

Only Built 4 Cuban Linx was followed by Immobilarity, which reached the number nine spot on the Billboard 200 before being certified gold by the RIAARae‘s third solo effort, The Lex Diamond Story, failed to sell at least 500,000 copies. Raekwonreportedly signed with Dr. Dre‘s Aftermath imprint in 2006, but eventually left the label on good terms without releasing any material. The tracks “Criminology 2” [click to listen] and “Wu-Oooh” [click to listen] have been released in anticipation of a proper album release.

“It’s gonna be raw Hip Hop,” Raekwon added. “We’re gonna keep it where we supposed to keep it. That album? That shit is gonna be better than your momma’s spaghetti, yo.”
