• 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz would go on to do plenty of collaborations, but this "Duffle Bag Boy" was the first big one, and it came back when Chainz was still Tity Boi. Playaz Circle scored a hit with this one, with Wayne delivering arguably one of his all time best hooks.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • For the past seven weeks, Raekwon has been doing a "TBT" series that involves him freestyling over old school R&B jams.
