Raekwon Songs

  • Sex Money Murder
    Sex Money Murder
    We've heard freestyles from Jadakiss and Jim Jones today, and now Tony Yayo joins the ranks of his NY veteran comrades with a not-quite-freestyle over Raekwon's "Ice Cream" (the beat is altered enough to elevate this a bit above a standard freestyle). Assisted by Thirst Mulah and Sose, the G-Unit member gives us a dope update on the classic. 
  • 1,2 1,2
    1,2 1,2
    As we inch closer to the release date of Raekwon's Fly International Luxurious Art (F.I.L.A.), the Chef has decided to drop off another single titled "1,2 1,2". When we saw the song on the leaked tracklist last month, the Snoop Dogg feature and the Scoop DeVille production immediately caught our interest, and we can tell you now--"1,2 1,2" does not disappoint. 
  • Wall To Wall
    Wall To Wall
    Raekwon has managed to age gracefully throughout his career, delivering one of the few late career album sequels that actually lived up to it's name (Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II). While he generally keeps his collaborations within the Wu family, he's appeared as a feature on plenty of modern records, including Kanye West's Dark Twisted Fantasy. Despite never straying far from what put him on, Raekwon is a versatile rapper, and his new collaboration finds him comfortably within the same lane as fellow OG Busta Rhymes and Bronx newcomer French Montana.
  • I Declare War
    I Declare War
    DJ Kay Slay is known to hold it down for New York, and his latest record is no exception. The DJ has recruited a multi-generational who's who of the big city's emcees, tapping Styles P and Sheek Louch of the LOX, Raekwon of The Wu-Tang Clan, Roc-A-Fella OG Rell, and newer Harlem voice Vado for the cut.
  • Try Me (Freestyle)
    Try Me (Freestyle)
    Raekwon has been turning plenty of freestyles over the last few months, but unlike his peers, he's stayed far away from the 'hot' instrumentals being passed around, opting instead for soul and disco songs. His Throwback Thursday series has proved a refreshing take on this style of remix, but it appears the legendary Wu-Tang rapper could not resist getting on Dej Loaf's buzzing "Try Me" anyway.
  • All About The Money (Remix)
    All About The Money (Remix)
    Shortly after getting a new Ghostface Killah single, "Love Don't Live Here No More," a cut off his newly-announced 36 Seasons album, the rapper returns alongside Raekwon for a remix of "All About The Money." Rae recently capped off his TBT series with his W
  • Walk In New York
    Walk In New York
    Grafh just dropped off a new collaboration with fellow New Yorkers Raekwon and Vado, for the aptly titled "Walk In New York." The three MCs wanted to recreate the classic New York feel by remaking the Onyx track, with production from DJ Ted Smooth. The dark, gritty record complete with scratches definitely emulates the sound of New York past. "Pure hip-hop at its finest," Grafh says of the track. Do you agree?
  • Laughing At The Haters
    Laughing At The Haters
    DJ Kay Slay is really putting on for NY on his latest The Original Man tape. Due to be released on Tuesday (November 4th), the hotly anticipated project has thus far inspired three drops here at HNHH, all three of which are composed almost entirely of East Coast emcees. The last single, "Don't Say Nothing To Me," dropped yesterday to reader-acclaim. Given the tonal similarities and the quality of the guest verses, "Laughing At The Haters" should be met with equal or greater enthusiasm. The instrumental on this one is courtesy of Gotti Gator.
  • Zoom/Free
    Rae decides to give fans a two-in-one special this week for his on-going TBT series. It looks like the series will finally come to an end and cumulate into a mixtape this Friday, containing all past TBT cuts plus four new tracks. The Chef recently delayed his F.I.L.A. album, so these work to hold fans over. We also recently got the GIF album artwork for Wu-Tang Clan's A Better Tomorrow.
  • Can't Believe
    Can't Believe
    It's hard to believe that this is the 19th #tbt track that Raekwon's released in what began as a summer series. "Can't Believe" follows 18 weeks of Rae going in over classic-flavored instrumentals, all reworkings of R&B/Soul tracks that are over a decade old. Today, he tackles Faith Evans and Carl Thomas' "Can't Believe." 
  • All Night Long
    All Night Long
    Raekwon has been 18 weeks strong with his weekly throwback records. The rapper took us back to the '70s last week with his "Back Stabbers" throwback, and this week we advance about twenty years to Mary J. Blige's 1995 single "All Night Long," from her album My Life. Rae is really schooling people with the meaning of TBT. As per usual, Rae spits a quick verse in the song's intro, keeping this one short and sweet at under 2 minutes.
  • Back Stabbers (Freestyle)
    Back Stabbers (Freestyle)
    Raekwon has been reaching back a little further than most for throwback Thrusday. The rapper has been consistently dropping a weekly freestyle, often sampling soul and disco, rather than you know, like "No Flex Zone" or something. It certainly freshens things up a bit, especially at a time when everyone seems to be choosing the same instrumentals to freestyle over.
  • Why Don't We Fall In Love
    Why Don't We Fall In Love
    Yesterday Wu-Tang Clan announced some big news for fans of the veteran crew, revealing that new music would be available on a portable speaker the NYC collective is launching. Wu-Tang is once again opting to go a unique route (as they are doing with their one-copy-only LP Once Upon A Time In Shaolin).
  • Heard It All Before (Remix)
    Heard It All Before (Remix)
    It's Thursday, so you know what that means. The Chef cooks up one of his weekly throwback tracks, with this week's being Sunshine Anderson's "Heard It All Before" from the year 2001. That's not quite as far back as Rae has been going lately, but it's still more than ten years old. Last week we headed to the year 1966 with a remix of Stevie Wonder's "Hey Love."
  • Hey Love
    Hey Love
    Raekwon shows no signs of stopping his weekly Throwback Thursday song series, which has been going for fourteen weeks strong now. In the process he's familiarizing us all with some vintage gems. Last week he decided to serve up some '90s music with a remix of Faith Evans "You Used To Love Me," however most of the time his TBT tracks use Soul/R&B/Funk records. Today he returns to his genre of choice, offering up a remix of Stevie Wonder's 1966 record "Hey Love."
  • You Used To Love Me
    You Used To Love Me
    For the past thirteen weeks, Raekwon has been putting his spin on classic tracks (mostly in the R&B/Soul realm) every Thursday in his #tbt series. So far, he's tackled tracks by The Jackson 5, Gwen Guthrie, René & Angela, The Gap Band, Fantasia, Luther Vandross, The Spinners, Teena Marie, Rose Royce, The Isley Brothers and more. This week, Rae takes on Faith Evans' classic jam "You Used To Love Me."
  • Close To You
    Close To You
    You can count on a weekly release from The Chef thanks to his recurring Throwback Thursday music series. This week he does not miss a step, starting off the day with the 12th instalment in his #TBT series. For this week's record we get a remix of "Close To You", a 1986 cover from Gwen Guthrie. Rae is keeping most of his Throwback records in the '80s and early '90s, as he gets kids these days familiar with some classics.
  • Got To Be There / The Girl Is Mine
    Got To Be There / The Girl Is Mine
    Plenty of rappers celebrate Throwback Thursday in some way or another, but few of them take it as far back as Raekwon. Every Thursday leading up to the release of his forthcoming studio album, Rae has been putting out freestyles. While rapping over someone else's instrumental is hardly new territory, the Wu-Tang Chef has made a point of breathing new life into the approach, picking classic soul songs to take on.
  • I’ll Be Good
    I’ll Be Good
    It's that time of the week again. When everybody is up on Instagram and Twitter throwing out their #TBT hashtags left and right. Raekwon is capitalizing on the trend with his Throwback Thursday music series, where he remixes an old school record weekly.  Last week's throwback of choice was "Yearning For Your Love", The Gap Band's 1981 hit. Today the Chef advances four years, heading to 1985 for René & Angela's "I'll Be Good." As per usual, he opens the record with his new verse and then let's the rest of the record take its usual course. Can you dig it?
  • Yearning For Your Love
    Yearning For Your Love
    Raekwon doesn't miss a step this week with the release of his Throwback Thursday record. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper has kept the #TBT-themed leaks coming week after week, we're on the ninth week at this point. After giving us something a bit more current last week with a remix of Fantasia's "When I See You", Rae heads further back in time this week to the year 1981.
