Raekwon Da Chef had a triumphant return to mainstream hip-hop in 2009. His modern classic, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II was both a commercial and critical success. An eventful 2010 saw the formation of a super group, where Wu brothers Method Man and Ghostface Killah joined Raekwon and released the Wu-Massacre album. In addition, Raekwon was featured on various albums and projects, working with the likes of Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Oh-No & Alchemist and Ghostface Killah. It looks like Rae wants to put his stamp on 2011, and this new track entitled “Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang” is the first track of the LP scheduled for March 2011. Rae adopts a cinematic approach which is familiarly utilized by Wu members, especially himself. Raekwon’s delivery on this track fits in very well with the dramatic beat, as his use of assonance is particularly pleasing as it almost melts into the production. If the rest of the album sounds like this, then 2011 will surely be his year as well.
