RAEKWON – “THE WILD” – The Chef’s 7th Solo Album!! (Stream) via @lisafordblog #WUTANG

CONSEQUENCES OF SOUND: "The Wild’s production is absolutely modern, but many of these beats have a dark edge that pairs much better with the angry flow Raekwon has perfected over the past three decades. “This Is What It Comes Too” immediately recalls classic ’90s Raekwon. The New York MC effortlessly drops vivid, hard-hitting lines like, “Stroke my bullets with cyanide/ So when they touch you that’s a case closed.” Raekwon spits an endearing recount of the life of Marvin Gaye on “Marvin”. The song features a big hook from CeeLo Green, who cuts through this boom-bap track like an outstretched hand pulling the cut into 2017. “Marvin” and “I Have Nothing” both come with the boom-bap foundation that should please Raekwon’s longtime fans."
