As we inch closer to the release date of Raekwon's Fly International Luxurious Art (F.I.L.A.), the Chef has decided to drop off another single titled "1,2 1,2". When we saw the song on the leaked tracklist last month, the Snoop Dogg feature and the Scoop DeVille production immediately caught our interest, and we can tell you now--"1,2 1,2" does not disappoint.
Scoop DeVille lays down a beat of frenzied horns over which Rae and Snoop bounce back and forth with shit-talking excellence. This should be a real treat for old-school heads, sounding like an East/West collab we missed out on in the 90s. Snoop steps away from the bubbly funk he's been concocting with Pharrell and gives us the OG treatment, while Rae's energy makes it hard to believe its been four years since his last album.
We haven't heard too much talk about been about F.I.L.A., but the Chef could make some serious noise with his upcoming sixth album.
Draw that line, flip that dime, spit that nine
Homie, this Crip on mine, thought you knew
We cold crush it, bum rush it, the Chef is my nephew
The king of the West, two niggas to test you
Let your next move be your best move, Jah bless you
- Snoop Dogg
