Founding member of the iconic Wu-Tang Clan and platinum solo artist Raekwon is prepping his forthcoming memoir From Staircase To Stage: The Story of Raekwon and the Wu-Tang Clan to release on November 9, 2021 through Gallery Books.
In the memoir, a collaboration with #1 New York Times bestselling co-author Anthony Bozza, the legendary wordsmith charts his journey from freestyling in the staircases of Staten Island’s Park Hill projects to performing in sold-out stadiums around the world.
Promising to be full of propulsive energy and unvarnished truth, in the memoir Raekwon reflects back on how poverty, drugs, and violence shaped his early years to revealing what it took to become one of the first hip-hop groups with underground roots to break into the mainstream.
In Raekwon’s words: “This is my story, from being a wide-eyed kid full of hopes and dreams, through hard times and sadness and so many situations I’m amazed I survived. This is all of it, the good, the bad, the ugly, the whole truth and nothing but.”
