Published Nov 22, 2011Earlier this year, we reported that Wu-Tang legend Raekwon had signed Toronto rapper JD Era to his new Ice H2O label. The Canadian love doesn't end there, though, as Rae has expanded his label operations with a Toronto office.
As Raekwon's publicist has informed us, the rapper has set up an office at the Yonge/Bloor area of Toronto at 619 Yonge St., with plans to sign more Canadian artists and help bring them to a worldwide audience. To show he's serious about making Toronto his home base, Raekwon has even bought a condo in the city.
Aside from more material from JD Era, Raekwon is planning to release Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt. III on the Ice H2O imprint. According to Rae's rep, the album will be available in 2012.
Stay tuned for more info on the label and the move in an upcoming Exclaim! interview with Raekwon.
