Did Raekwon Use Inspectah Deck For Media Hype?

Raekwon is a clever character

Inspectah Deck is not dead. In a 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher on Oct. 12, 2010 Raekwon said “R.I.P to my brother from the Wu, Inspectah Deck, his whole earth, his mother, miss jason hunter, mrs. hunter we love you r.i.p, this the cypher right here, we love you, peace.”

This statement, undeniably, led viewers to believe Inspectah Deck, of the Wu-Tang Clan, was dead. People have now learned and realized that Raekwon was referencing Inspectah Deck’s late mother “mrs. hunter.” 

 

Did Raekwon use Inspectah Deck for the Hype?

Raekwon has recently switched up his image or ‘style’ to keep up with the new era of hip hop & technology. He promotes his Facebook & Twitter pages and updates them often. He even did the unthinkable and made a track with Justin Bieber. Needless to say, Raekwon is on and uses the internet.

Nobody was freestyling in that cypher, so Raekwon knew and possibly rehearsed his part before the show.

So why would Raekwon even give a shout out to Inspectah Deck’s mother like that…On tv?…In a fake cypher??…at the BET Hip Hop awards??? That aint how you pay respect to yur boy’s mother after she passes away, even if you in the Wu-Tang.

Only the Chef could take something so simple and word it in a way that would give people a first impression that Inspectah Deck was dead. Then the Chef could benefit from increased media attention on the internet. All while not taking any blame because he did make it clear that he meant Inspectah Deck’s mother, even though you have to listen to it closely to realize that.

See it for yourself at 2:57. Is Raekwon stunting or what?
