Raekwon recently announced his next album The Wild and shared its first track "This Is What It Comes To." This morning he returned with its second track, a J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League-produced thrill ride called "Purple Brick Road" that finds Raekwon still at the pinnacle of his lyrical powers.
“As I shift gears with my diversity, I want fans to see another side of a champion; my triumphs remain inimitable when making music for yesterday and today’s culture.” he told Pitchfork. “G-Eazy is a master writer and he helped me create the greatest vision any artist could ask for; another great recipe from my skillful cookbook."
He went onto call The Wild a "circus of emotions." Listen to "Purple Brick Road" and check out the album tracklist below.
Handcuff 'em, that's a no-no,
Cause I don't trust 'em as far as I can throw those
Gold-diggin vixens who's in love with the coco
But fuck it, you know I'm here for this dough doe,
Let's pop another bottle of Don and watch our gross grow
