Raekwon & Lil Wayne Spit Flames For Every Corner Of The World (Audio)
In just over two weeks, Raekwon will drop The Wild, an album he told Ambrosia for Heads serves to remind his fans that, 20 years later, “this dude still sound like a young-boy, like a young bull.” He’s proven his endurance on all of his singles thus far – “This Is What It Comes Too” and “Purple Brick Road” (featuring G-Eazy) – and today, he drops a third taste of the forthcoming LP, starring a guest who has always aligned himself with the concept of being a “young-boy,” Mr. Young Money himself.
On “My Corner,” Lil Wayne joins the Wu-Tang MC for a record that Rae’ tells Rolling Stone “must be played at high volume.” It is indeed a punishing track, opening with The Chef saying “let’s get real loud and vulgar in here.” “Peace to my corner, where n****s’ll leave your head and switch lanes on ya,” he begins. He delivers a snapshot of the stark reality that presents itself on his corner of life, whether on the street, on the mic, or as he navigates throughout the rest of the world.
For his part, Weezy launches into a lengthy verse that features the kind of delivery that fans have been eager for while awaiting the perpetually delayed Carter V. “We about to break ’em down like when hammers hit boulders/If one of us go down, then we keep our lips frozen/Who that n**** with, blood?/Make him spit blood/He don’t got no name but the n**** that he hit does,” he spits. Raekwon wraps it all up with a second verse, alluding to his stamina right away, saying “I seen it all, done it all, and I’m still doin’ it/Who gave you crime action stories live from the bricks?/Now it’s more diamonds, more bread, more bitches, more
Produced by G Sparkz, the song, says Raekwon, is “a flashback to them good ol’ terrible blocks, and we take you back to all-black outfits.” Of working with Lil Wayne, he shared “I studied him way back and appreciated the opportunity to trade bars with him. I always heard his voice on this, and I was very pleased hearing him tap dance on a different style of production.” The Wild arrives March 24.
