Raekwon doesn’t have to play Call of Duty; he lives it. On the latest single off his sixth solo set, the Chef offers us an up-close and personal glimpse at life in the trenches of the hip-hop game. While Rae’s rhymes are intricate and high-rolling as usual, his loyal fans may be taken aback by the beat, a catchy, club/radio-friendly arrangement courtesy of Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis. Akon‘s hook vocals only heighten the pop appeal. Are you feeling Raekwon’s approach on this jam? If so, you’ll want to watch the Booth for further details on his currently-unscheduled album, Fly International Luxurious Art.
