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

"Snake Pond"

Produced by: Selasi
Complex says: Although it’s a bit hard to follow (at least on the first listen) this is some classic Raekwon story-telling. Dark, soft cries make up the beat (think GZA’s “Queen's Gambit”) as Rae tells a story of betrayal. He paints a picture using elaborate details (“She once shot up a Chipotle, but don’t quote me”) to tell a story that eventually leads to him cutting the grass for a meeting at snake pond.
