We're only three weeks into 2018, and Raekwon is dropping off his third piece of new material for fans. The Wu-Tang Clan member releases his new track, "It's a Shame," which features production from RoadsArt.

The new guitar and bass-filled instrumental finds the New York MC delivering some signature storytelling bars as he paints a picture from his street life past. Infusing jewelry and drugs into his lyrics, Raekwon proves that his pen game is just as eclectic as ever.

"From Kooley High to Kooley's house," Raekwon raps. "Yeah, tapped a few dust blunts/Two hours later, knocked Julie out/Runnin' out the fire escape breathless/Fuck it son, let's go get breakfast/After that, catch a necklace."

The Staten Island native has already dropped two other songs since the start of 2018. He previously released "The Sky" and "The Biz" in past weeks, and now he's teasing fans even more for what he could be cooking up this year.

Raekwon dropped his The Wild album early last year, and was also featured on Wu-Tang's The Saga Continues project at the end of 2017. We'll have to see if there's anything else up his sleeve as the year progresses.

Take a listen to Raekwon's new "It's a Shame" record below to hear what he's been cooking up.
