Raekwon Bodies His New Single “This Is What It Comes Too”

When Raekwon revealed the cover to his upcoming new album a couple weeks ago, it was accompanied with a release date of March 10. The wait has not only been shortened by two weeks to February 27, but the first taste of the album can now be checked out as well.

If you’re a “sheepskin socks ass n***a”, you might wanna skip it though. Raekwon goes straight for the jugular over a drumloop from Melvin Bliss’ 1977 track “Synthetic Substitution”, the same one Kanye utilized in “New God Flow”. Which in turn was was inspired by “Mighty Healthy”, from Ghostface’s sophomore classic Supreme Clientele. Guess what drum pattern Wu-Tang DJ Mathematics laced that beat with?

But leave it to The Chef to still serve up a familiar recipe with some sharp spices. He sounds energized and aggressive, over a brief burst of a track, spitting he’s a “shank doctor with choppers / raining on ya militants / guns drawn / blowing out ya back / ain’t concealing shit”.

Sometimes all we need is some good old home cooking to get the blood boiling again. Check out the track and the album’s cover art below.
