Raekwon Freaks The Classic Gang Starr Funk On Lion’s Paw Freestyle (Audio)
Gang Starr and DJ Premier have longstanding ties to the Wu-Tang Clan, from the days of Premo lending equipment to RZA in the Tommy Boy Records days, to Inspectah Deck on “Above The Clouds,” and Method Man’s appearance on the “In Together Now” remix. Interestingly enough, Staten Island’s Raekwon has never worked with Gang Starr or Premier, despite a lot of cross-over.
Chef hops on the cherished “Mass Appeal” instrumental, with some Gladys Knight & The Pips intro/outro action to boot, in what seems to be a musical marriage. Is that a collaboration the Heads can hope for?
Rae’s been mixing it up in the fourth quarter, eh?
