Raekwon comes through with his new single "It's A Shame."

Raekwon kicked off 2018 with two new singles on January 3rd with "The Sky" and "The Biz." A little over a week later and Raekwon comes through with more music. Today, the Chef drops off "It's A Shame."

Tackling some sample heavy production, Raekwon comes through with his know single "It's A Shame." The rapper's fluid flow weaves in and out as he delivers vivid imagery throughout the track. The song was produced by RoadsArt who has previously worked with Rae, most notably on 2013's "Rainy Day." 

It seems as if Raekwon has something up his sleeve this year. The rapper's already dropped three new singles and we're not even halfway through January. In March 2017, the rapper dropped off The Wild and later on the year, he joined the rest of the Wu members for The Saga Continues project. So hopefully, he's cookin' something else up as he feeds us these solid loose singles.

Quotable Lyrics
From Kooley High to Kooley's house
Yeah, tapped a few dust blunts
Two hours later, knocked Julie out
Runnin' out the fire escape breathless
Fuck it son, let's go get breakfast
After that, catch a necklace
