The Wu Tang Clan will take a check wherever they can find it. Raekwon took his latest check, from the popular fast food joint Lord Of The Fries.
The fast food chain paid the legendary rapper to perform an impromptu concert for its customers. They then video'd the concert, and streamed it on social media.
Here is the concert:
The concert in a restaurant is an interesting new marketing campaign. Another Wu Tang member Ghostface Killa recently performed in a White Castle - for a large check. At the time, many Ghostface's fans questioned WHY he would perform in such a small venue.
Raekwon, is in Australia at the moment for an on-going tour with the equally notable Slick Rick, stopped by a Lord of the Fries outlet on Brunswick St in Fitzroy, Melbourne to eat burgers, dip fries in various sauces, and – would you even believe – perform a short set for the hungry customers in the store.
The gig was open to a lucky handful of fans who scored tickets via LotF’s social media channels, and was run in conjunction with the vege/vegan chippery launching a new range of “Beyond Meat” plant-based patties that reportedly cook and taste like conventional meat.
Raekwon and fellow members of the Wu have been known to do surprise, intimate gigs at vegetarian joints across the world, but this marks the first time one of those shows has gone down in Melbourne.
