13. Raekwon on Outkast's "Skew It On The Bar-B" (1998)
Producer: Organized Noize
Label: LaFace, Arista
The Chef adapts his Shaolin style to the Outkast's sound without compromising his Cuban Linx technique. Rhyming off the same word for his entire twelve bars, Rae doesn't falter from his established Crime Rap pedigree as he slings that Wu slang effortlessly over the breezy track.
This proves that while Raekwon's flow is fluid and versatile, he isn't leaving his chosen topic chamber for anybody. And why should he? Lex Diamond's first album was so great that he can do whatever the hell he wants to for the next 20 years and no one would have the right to complain.
