For 25 years, Raekwon has been one of the most sought out voices in music; a true originator of lyricism, street fashion, & inventive music. On 3.24.2017, the legendary emcee will release his seventh solo album 'The Wild'. Released through his own IceH20 imprint along with EMPIRE, the album is a stark commentary on both the world and the music industry--everything is wild, Rae notes, alluding to his new album’s symbolic title.
With so much uncertainty in the world, it’s never been more apparent that this jungle needs order; and as the apex predator within Hip-Hop’s jungle, Raekwon plans to restore order with 'The Wild'. Today, Raekwon releases the third single from 'The Wild', “My Corner”, which features Lil Wayne.
Raekwon commented to Rolling Stone:
“Wayne is a charismatic individual and his flows are dumb delightful. I studied him way back and appreciated the opportunity to trade bars with him. I always heard his voice on this and I was very pleased hearing him tap dance on a different style of production. 'My Corner' is a flashback to them good ole terrible blocks and we take you back to all black outfits. This record must be played at high volume.”
