Raekwon Releases “This Is What It Comes Too”
Next month, Raekwon is set to drop a new solo album titled The Wild. With the project's release date quickly approaching, the Wu-Tang member gives fans their first preview of the LP with the lead single "This Is What It Comes Too." The Chef drops gems on the boom bap production, showing off his witty unpredictable talent and natural game.
"Take trips in and out of the country/Turn dark clouds to sunny/I'm living good, my paper got me comfy/You in the hook talking bout you wanna a war with me/I'll getcha projects shot down while your landlord sleep/Now you in too deep, no turning back from your actions/You a killer then show me, if not, meet my savages," Raekwon raps.
Raekwon hopes his new LP will be a throwback for listeners. The legendary MC is looking to recapture the greatness of hip-hop's past.
"Hip-hop in its purest form is being reinstated," Rae told Billboard. "You needed a taste, you needed the seasoning; relax, the Chef is here to serve you! 'This Is What It Comes Too' is a record with sonic driven energy and offers a remembrance of what music used to be and why hip-hop is the most exciting genre in music."
Raekwon's The Wild is scheduled to drop on March 24 via ICEH20 Records and EMPIRE Distribution. You can pre-order the Wu-Tang rapper's album right now on iTunes and get instant access to "This Is What It Comes Too."
