That’s right!  Your girl Ifelicious was on the scene at Santos Party House in New York City for Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon’s “Only Built for Cuban Linx, Vol. 2” album release party hosted by Diddy.  The press list was extremely tight and I lost my official access to get in the party, but you know how I do…I got myself in anyway!!! 😎

I was THE ONLY small media outlet to get footage on the red carpet AND in the party and definitely the only one representin’ the Midwest!  So keep it bookmarked on ifelicious.com for the fresh red carpet event coverage!

Diddy snuck in without walking the red carpet but the featured guest Raekwon, of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan, walked the red carpet and gave me shout (see below).  Also in attendance were some of hip hop’s finest: Redman, Ice T, Serius Jones, Eric Sermon, Lil Cease, Ghostface Killah and many more!  Reality TV star Tailor Made and songstress Chrisette Michele were also in attendance.

Event photographer Devan Carter captured red carpet moments as well as the party and concert inside Santos Party House.

I have listened to Raekwon’s “Only Built For Cuban Linx, Vol. 2,” and it’s definitely hot so be sure to download it on iTunes or buy it at your favorite music store.
