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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Raekwon's been on point with his throwback freestyle series, where he takes true throwbacks and adds a new verse. We say 'true' throwbacks 'cause most of the records he's choosing are from the '70s or '80s.
It's Thursday, so that means Raekwon is back with another Throwback record paying homage to true oldies with different freestyles. This serves as the fifth instalment in his ongoing series, following up last week's flip of Teena Marie's "Ooh La La La."
The Chef is keeping up with the times by dropping off throwback records each Thursday, and today we've received the fourth instalment in the series.
Last week Rae took on the Isley Brother's "Footsteps In The Dark," and today's record pays homage to r'n'b singer Teena Marie's 1988 cut "Ooh La La La."
Raekwon is taking throwback Thursday a little further back than most. Each week, he raps over a different classic instrumental, but so far he's been going back to a time before hip hop, today, taking on The Isley Brothers' "Footsteps In The Dark".
Busta Rhymes has been throwing down plenty of freestyles with his pal O.T. Genasis over the last little while.
His latest offering also adds a verse from fellow 90s New York legend Raekwon, as the three emcees go in over a reworked sample of The LOX's "Get This $", keeping with the NY vibe of things.
