Album Preview: Raekwon's "Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang"

“Rock N Roll” f/ Ghostface Killah and Jim Jones

Produced by: DJ Khalil
Complex says: Wait, is that autotune? Hold on a second, is that Ron Browz? It’s not? Okay, but WTF is up with the autotune? Over an eerie, spaced-out beat that sounds like nothing else on the album Ghost, Chef, and Jim Jones all rap about moving that [crack] rock and roll. Although Ghost has a memorable mention of having Bobby Brown on speed dial, the best verse is actually from Jones since he’s the only person who sounds comfortable. Capo name-drops every rock band he can think of and tops it all off with the line, “We pop them Guns N’ Roses but Diplomats, we The Eagles/We feena be bigger than the Beatles.” Hey, in Harlem circa-2003 that wasn’t too much of a hyperbole.
