Riff: Raekwon feat. Altrina Renee – “86′”

Jan 21, 2013

Winter time rocking the fox, hangin with Bruno Mars, The Lox/Sting yo, Nas’ pop, we gettin’ honeys, rap pack click in my gunny/Blowin two L’s Ocean’s 11 it’s money

from 86' lyrics by Raekwon

This is more Raekwon’s element – boogie inspired and smoked out. He’s a New Yorker through and through, but this is an example of how good he can sound over a sunny, West Coast beat. The lyrics are non-committal, but are engaging enough to give you something to nod your head to.
