For 25 years, Raekwon has been one of the most sought out voices in music; a true originator of lyricism, street fashion and 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 albumâ€™s symbolic title.
With so much uncertainty in the world, itâ€™s never been more apparent that this jungle needs order; and as the apex predator within hip-hopâ€™s jungle, Raekwon plans to restore order with The Wild.
Today, via an exclusive premiere with Rolling Stone, Raekwon releases the second single from The Wild, â€œMy Corner,â€ which features Lil Wayne.
â€œWayne is a charismatic individual and his flows are dumb delightfulâ€ Raekwon commented to Rolling Stone. â€œI 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. â€œMy Cornerâ€ 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.â€
