Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon is ready to take 2013 by storm, announcing plans to drop a new solo effort later this year called F.I.L.A.

The "Chef" broke his unexpected news on Twitter New Year's Day.

"Y'all ready for the title and release of my new album?," Rae tweeted.

In late November, Rae said he would drop an EP in the coming weeks.

In case you didn't get your Wu fix with the Wu Block album, Raekwon has something for you. Last night, The Chef took to Twitter to announce the title of his up-coming extended play which will reportedly drop in the first part of 2013.

Rae's latest solo album landed in the Top 20 when it dropped a couple years ago.

Outside of his own music, the Wu's lyrical swordsman recently revealed his interest in collaborating alongside rap star Kanye West.

"Um, you know, Kanye, them is my guys," Rae said when asked if he will appear on Cruel Winter. "If he was to call me in to do some things, it's gonna happen. You know what I mean? I'm a big fan of the movement. They've been doing a lot of great things, so, when they call a fella like me in, they know what I get ready to do. So Cruel Winter, Cruel Spring, [laughs], all that, put me down so I can throw my voice on it, you know what I mean?" (HHNM)
