Raekwon "The Wild" / 'Visiting Hours'

Raekwon released his new project, 'The Wild' on Friday via IceH20 Records; it's his first project since 2015's 'Fly International Luxurious Art.' Rae's thoughts: "Being in the game for a long time can only make me a more passionate artist and that's where I'm at. It's like I'm better than I was 20 years ago in my eyes, so it's more about celebrating and showing people that I am still here..." (XXL) You can hear that passion on 'The Wild;'' it's a welcomed return filled with good vibes! 'Marvin,' the new single with Cee-Lo, is up and down my timeline right now, but I'm making today's selection 'Visiting Hours,' which features the uber talented, 'Andra Day,' and has Raekwon spittin' his truth in a letter over layered breaks & light keys. The illustrated artwork on the album was handled by Dan Lish

 'That used to be me / Young, ruthless, and carefree 
Until I seen the bigger picture / Shifted, my way of thinking 
That 25 to life is real / So is the casket once it close on you 
Word to the youth / Its not a game, cause life'll swerve on you...'
