Raekwon On Learning From Mistakes
Raekwon recently shared his perspective on longevity and how he's had to learn from the mistakes he made earlier in his career and life. For the acclaimed Wu-Tang lyricist, his success has been hard fought--but he's thankful that he's had the opportunity to take the lessons and apply them.
"I learned about myself and how important my brand is as a person and as a company," Rae says. "I definitely won’t allow myself to fall short on any kind of failure. Based on all the experiences I have in life, especially in this music business, that these are the times you gotta know."
“I realize my powers and where I went wrong with certain things and where I’m able to fix things and that’s all I’ve been working on for the last five years, is self-preservation," he continued. "Not depending on anybody to make my career be more than what it is. It’s like, it’s just about me. What you wanna do, Rae? That was something I had to just go through, know what I mean?”
