Since then there hasn’t been much talk about the film until now, as The Chef gives an update on his forthcoming C.R.E.A.M. biopic.
In an interview with NBC’s NiteCap, Raekwon speaks on his film:
“When I was working on my album [Only Built 4] Cuban Linx II, I actually sat down with a couple of my guys from my company and we wrote a story basically about my life. It’s called C.R.E.A.M — [and] we finally got it together where it’s a great biopic film about a kid such as myself growing up in an urban neighborhood and having to deal with the day-to-day [life], having to grow up in a single [parent situation] where your moms, she’s your mother and your father. All you know is the streets, you pay attention to things that go on [there] and then there become choices that you make. There’s been things that I’ve been involved with in my life, some good, some bad, but I consider myself having a full life. I just wanted to put it in a great storyline and basically give the young kid that’s coming from where I came an opportunity to see the things that I’ve been through because he may be able to relate.”
As of now, there has been no release date set for the Raekwon biopic C.R.E.A.M.
