While his fellow Wu-Tang clansmen focus on Hollywood dreams and astrophysics, Raekwon stays dedicated to the hustle with his latest joint, “Keep It Politics”. Backed by DJ Babu’s production of vintage guitars and a steady xylophone groove, Rae delivers trademark verses about the kind of men who make the grind their only way of life (“Shout out to Rayvon/All he do is hustle as Avon/Rockin’ jeans like Ghostface and chillin’ his baby bomber/Talkin’ bout peelin’ his baby mom”). Stream it below.
The song is the lead single from Closed Sessions Vol. 2, a series by the eponymous Chicago indie label that releases new singles from up and coming and established MCs. Along with the tunes, each rapper is spotlighted in a short documentary, and you can watch the piece on Raekwon below.
