Ol' Ralphy Bastard

It’s no secret that Raekwon was partial to wearing a Polo Sport jacket, but not a lot of people know that the Ralph Lauren / Wu Tang link goes a little deeper. Just as Brian Epstein was considered the 5th Beatle, Ralph is actually the 176th Killah Bee. Operating behind a mask of smoke and mirrors, he’s the mastermind behind the whole thing, pulling strings like a shaolin puppet master. He’s fairly shady about the whole affair, but every now and again he’ll get them to drop a subliminal message in there… Protect Your Neck? That’s about rolling the collar up on your polo shirt. And C.R.E.A.M? That actually stands for ‘call Ralph everyone’s all-ruling master’.
