Eighteen years ago, Raekwon The Chef made a cult masterpiece with Ghostface Killah and Blue Raspberry. in “Rainy Dayz” (and the heavily-overlooked Diamond D remix). The song is coveted among Rae and Wu-Tang Clan fans, and has been covered and referenced by contemporaries and predecessors alike. Always calling back to the mid-’90s in his raps and calculated moves, Raekwon delivers “A Rainy Day” in 2013.

The song is not a sequel by any means, but clearly references/interpolates aspects of the original ’95 live jam. What’s even cooler, the tone may be kept, but the subject matters are wildly different.
