Ball So Hard: Raekwon Is Putting The Rap Game On Notice That He’s Back (Video)
At the top of February, Raekwon The Chef unleashed the first call from The Wild album, coming March 24. The Wu-Tang Clan lyrical assassin examines the jungle around him, and ambushes the attributes in the culture he doesn’t like on single “This Is What It Comes Too” (as it is spelled in the artwork).
Two days later, one of the greatest MCs of the last 25 years steps forth with his video. The treatment is simple from the Staten Island MC. Rae’ delivers his bars directly into the lens, so Heads know it’s for real.
Bars such as “I done blacked out / No man is safe / Your crew is cornered / Why did you think you could step over me / I’m too enormous” explain why in the wilderness of Rap, The Chef will forever be an apex predator.
This other set of bars bring the point home: “You in the ‘hood talkin’ bout you want a war with me? / I’ll get your project shot down while your landlord sleep / Now you in too deep, no turning back on your actions / You a killa? Then show me, if not, then meet my savages.”
