Raekwon f/ Ghostface Killah, Method Man, & Cappadonna "Ice Cream" (1995)

Produced by: RZA

Raekwon: “I hated ‘Ice Cream’. That’s crazy, right? It’s funny ‘cause, I loved the beat. The only thing I didn’t like about the record, I felt like it was too soft for Cuban Linx. When I tell you everybody fought with me, even Ghost was like, ‘Nah G, this is it.’ And I was like, ‘Nah, it’s too soft. We need everything hard! Gutter!’

”It wasn’t like I wasn’t on my chick thing, I wasn’t just focusing on that at the moment. I just wanted a hard album. A solid album. I loved the record. I was never mad at it being on Cuban Linx. It was just when it came down to doing videos, really ampin’ it up, I was like, ‘Nah, I ain’t really feelin’ it.’ And then you know, the shit just end up poppin’ off on the radio and they was playing it.

“I like the concept. To me, when Meth came with the hook and we figured it out and said, ‘We gonna talk about ice cream, we gotta talk about all flavors.’ It was just a great concept and basically I loved the record based on that, but it was definitely one of the ones that I could really say I looked past.”
