Raekwon (born Corey Woods aka the Chef, Lex Diamonds) is an American rapper and a member of the Wu-Tang Clan. Though he is not as well known as such other Wu-Tang members like Method Man, Ol' Dirty Bastard or RZA, Raekwon has released some of the most critically acclaimed solo work from the Wu-Tang.

Raekwon joined the Wu-Tang Clan in time to participate on Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the group's massively successful debut. Raekwon signed a solo deal with Loud Records[?] and released his only solo LP, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx in 1995 to rave reviews, though the album's sales were sluggish. Working with Ghostface Killah, Raekwon's solo album was one of the masterpieces of rap in the 1990s and is still remembered as perhaps the greatest Wu-Tang solo LP thus far. Raekwon participated on Wu-Tang Forever[?] with the rest of the group, and then released Immobilarity[?] in 1999, to somewhat more mixed reviews than Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.
