• Listing his five favorite emcees in a short Q&A for GQ's new Barbershop interview series, Raekwon gave shout outs to Rakim, Slick Rick, Kool G Rap, KRS-One, and Chuck D. When asked who's at the top of the hip-hop game, however, he claimed all five emcees were out-shined by fellow New Yorker Jay Z.
  • Raekwon decided to reach way back on his most recent freestyle. While the trendy remix record right now is easily Drake's "0 To 100" (which picked up right where "Chiraq" and "The Worst" left off), Rae has revived the 70's soul/disco classic "Wishing On A Star" by Rose Royce.
  • Raekwon is not one to compromise his distinct style, and his new single does a good job of preserving his hard-edged street lyricismm while adding a dose of catchiness to the mix. Akon provides the hook here, taking on the propulsive instrumental with an intensity that plays off of Rae's dealer wordplay quite well.
