As Raekwon the Chef puts the final seasonings on his much-anticipated Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, he’s trimming some of the excess fat to maintain the retro flavor listeners have been waiting for (as exemplified by the Booth-acclaimed Wu Ooh). One of these cuttings is Maino collaboration Dealer. Over Swizz Beatz protégé Neo Da Matrix‘s beat, the two emcees carry the movement from Staten Island to Brooklyn with equally strong verses. The only problem is, when one collaborator is a member of one of hip-hop’s deepest crews and the other’s still working on his debut album, are both artists really supposed to spit with the same skill? Still, if you enjoy Dealer, then prepare for one succulent main course later this spring, when the Chef finally serves up Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II.
