Roughly a year after the release of their long-awaited comeback LP, Channel 10, Capone-N-Noreaga are now attempting the risky, yet potentially very rewarding undertaking feat of creating an official follow-up to a classic debut LP. Kicked off with what I’m pretty sure is the first Marvin the Martian sample in Booth history, lead single The Reserves sees CNN hooking up with a fellow Northeastern street vet who recently achieved massive success via the very same strategy. That’s right: over The Bizness’ appropriately gritty, sampled boardwork, the twosome are joined by Wu-Tang alum Raekwon, whose steps up to the mic to drop a few characteristically shifty-eyed guest bars in between the headliners’ hard-nosed opening and closing contributions. So, allow me to pose the obvious question: having gotten your first taste of WR2, do you expect it to be a worthy successor to the duo’s ‘97 freshman effort? We’ll know for certain on June 29, when the album hits online retailers and record stores everywhere.
