It’s no surprise that we’re looking forward to Wu-Tang member Raekwon’s upcoming March release Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang – and Rae dropped another taster to tide us over until the record drops. The title track has an irresistible beat – dramatic violin and clubby drum machine sounds like a Hollywood shoot-em-up soundtrack. Raekwon needs to realize, though, that his flow and beats can create this vibe by themselves – he doesn’t need to take up half his song’s prime rapping space with samples from old-timey movies. Check it out anyway while you wait these last few weeks for the rest of the record.
