Raekwon’s been spotted in the kitchen re-baking Drake’s “Pound Cake” and kicking it with Ghostface Killah and OG Regis Philbin. Now, he’s cozying up with Lorde, rapping over her chart-topping single, “Royals”. The beat of the minimal pop hit is a total catch, no doubt ripe for remixes to come. But content-wise, it’s an interesting choice for the emcee, considering he’s flaunting his success and wealth in a song whose original message critiques that kind of lavish lifestyle. Is it a friendly debate? A critique on a critique? Or…just a simple remix? Check it out below.
Raekwon’s F.I.L.A (that’s Fly International Luxurious Art) is set to arrive later this year.
