As long as there are streets to be run, drugs to be sold, and killer RZA beats to rap over, Wu-Tang members will remain united in their effort to sound as badass as humanly possible. On Necro, the first leaked song from Raekwon’s (very) long-awaited second album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2, “the chef” and Ghostface combine their emotionally-charged flows and storytelling abilities to paint a vivid picture of their street-based exploits. The beat is as dark as their lyrics, providing a fitting background to the two menacing, stream-of-consciousness verses. After a mythically long wait of 13 years, Raekwon is definitely ready to bring the same swagger to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 that he brought to its classic original.
