Raekwon and Lil Wayne Finally Connect on “My Corner”

Raekwon has grabbed Lil Wayne for a guest feature on his new single, “My Corner,” an ode to raucous, youthful years spent on New Orleans and Staten Island blocks. The song comes from The Wild, the Wu-Tang vet’s upcoming eighth studio album. If the title of Rae’s full-length is an allusion to the idea that the world is out of whack, then Chef and Weezy have “My Corner” under complete control.

Rae’s whispery-but-sinister vocals work perfectly in contrast to the shrill synthesizers that punctuate “The Wild.” But G Sparkz’s beat is at its best when Lil Wayne comes roaring in for the track’s middle verse. He oscillates from slow and methodical to downright manic, all while remaining perfectly in-pocket. The song’s tone is definitely spooky, as Rae tells Rolling Stone“‘My Corner’ is a flashback to them good ol’ terrible blocks, and we take you back to all-black outfits.”

Also, here’s a reminder that Lil Wayne will headline Live at the BBQ, our third annual celebration at SXSW, next week.

The Wild drops on March 24, and you can pre-order it here. Check out “My Corner” and the album’s official tracklist below.
