Evidently unburdened by sessions for the new Wu-Tang Clan record, Raekwon continues to promote his upcoming solo album F.I.L.A. After unveiling a few freestyles and guest appearances earlier this year, he returns today with a brand new single titled “The Living Room”, produced by frequent collaborators Frank G. and Roadsart.
Here, Rae’s healthy self-confidence kicks into overdrive, as he rattles off a list of his finest mink coats and $100,000 watches over a modest beat of looped drums and random vocal samples. Perhaps some people might blame Raekwon for Wu’s delays, and, to some degree, rightfully so. But he responds to drama the way he always has: by keeping his nose to the grindstone and never relenting in his bragadocious ways, not for one second.
