Raekwon The Chef doesn’t sound like he’s aged a day on his recent album The Wild, so we’ve pulled another of our favorite tracks from the Wu-Tang emcee’s recent release. “Nothing” is as vintage as it gets for Rae.
Spitting his raspy bars over a sparse, almost western-sounding beat, Raekwon’s storytelling comes to the forefront. He raps about the abject poverty of the hood and how the chase for a little bit of cash drives everything. It’s a testament to Raekwon’s talent that his stories sound as fresh and gritty as every despite 20 years in the game.
