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.”
