Raekwon Goes Back To The Good Ol’ Days Of His Youth Over ’70s Soul (Audio)
Raekwon is three songs deep in a young 2018. Just over one week after the Wu-Tang Clan swordsman hit Heads off with a combo punch in “The Sky” and “The Biz,” the Staten Island, New Yorker is back for more.
Like those previous sample-based records joints, the quick-strike “It’s A Shame” arrangement by RoadsArt clutches strongly to The Spinners’ 1970 hit of the same name. Back then, it was the Detroit, Michigan collective’s first of many dashes into the Top 20.
For Chef Rae’, it’s a mental journey about his youth, from fashion stylin’, Kung Fu flicks in the grind-houses, and a warning to never ever call him by his first name.
Raekwon’s 2016 album, The Wild, is still sitting pretty as one of the best Wu-Tang solo efforts of late.
