Proving that the crack days are long gone as Ghostface proclaimed recently, Raekwon is kickin’ rhymes to push whips for the Los Angeles-based luxury car dealer, Carlyle Motor Club.

The Shaolin MC is the first rapper to star in ads for Carlyle, boasting of the dealership’s offering of exotic whips, stretching from Ferraris to Jaguars—with the added bonus of no credit check required. Freekey Zekey and Joe Budden are next in line to lay down fresh verses cosigning Carlyle [peep snippets of their ads here].

Rae’s long-awaited sequel to his solo debut and certified classic, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, is finally set for release on August 11. - Devin Chanda
