Raekwon’s J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League Single Hints At What Wu’s Next LP May Sound Like (Video)
Raekwon is less than one month away from his album, The Wild. The Chef appears out for growth on the March 24 ICE H20/Empire release. While it is void of any Wu-Tang Clan appearances, Rae’ connects with other disciples of his sound and style. Despite the fact that he grew up more than 3,000 miles away from Shaolin, G-Eazy is one artist who caught a buzz off of the Purple Tape and many moments after.
G-Eazy and Raekwon make the visual to last month’s sophomore single, “Purple Brick Road.” The follow-up track to “This Is What It Comes Too” [sic] finds the two artists living in their worlds of success—flashing British luxury sedans, palace-like mansions with art and iced down wines. However, Rae and his guest MC both strive to keep those surroundings going through rocking the mic right. This is produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Rick Ross, Jeezy, Bun B), the same Florida-based production trio allegedly responsible for the sounds of the potential next album from Wu-Tang. Last December, the trio of Barto, Rook, and Colione alluded that this song may have been what opened the door up for more collaboration.
RZA has already stated that if a proper follow-up to 2014’s A Better Tomorrow is to happen, Ghostface Killah (who has since confirmed this too) will call the shots. That marks a departure for RZA, who has symbolically and literally been “The Abbott” for 25 years and counting.
