Wu Tang Clan rapper Raekwon has teamed up with hip-hop legend Dr Dre in an attempt to kick-start his solo career.

Raekwon hasn’t released his own record since 1999’s 'Immobilarity' - the follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' - but says his new effort for Dre’s label Aftermath, which is also being produced by the former NWA star, is shaping up nicely.

He tells MTV, “Allah put us in the right place. I'm working real hard, putting little pieces together. The album is coming out great.

“Everything is up to par. We still working on it, we never stop working till the last day.”
