What you know about clean, punchy rhymes rippling off a smooth OG's track? Dass right! Raekwon announced that he'll be dropping his next album The Wild in March and since then the countdown has been rather slow, until now.
He drops This Is What It Comes To as a "scooby snack" (I'm learning from SkinnyGenes) to hold us till the 10th. Goodness gracious me, he is in top form. This track feels like when the Sensei stops instructing the class and actually does the Kata for us all to see. Damnit Kwon! The joint has a very classic feel to it, staying true to his flavour and the era in which he and the Clan were booming. How do some of the greats do it? Manage to remain so relevant while never falling off their true rhyme slaying nature? Impeccable.
