Riff: Raekwon feat. Freddie Gibbs – “New Day”

Jan 21, 2013

We sit around the table here it goes/It’s yours, mines, his, hers, what/This what it does/Just keep it in the family all love

from New Day lyrics by Raekwon

A lot more talking than rapping here, and if you were anyone other than Raekwon you might not be able to get away with it. Rae gets a pass for what he’s done over the past few years, but at this point all this album is so far is filler until F.I.L.A. drops.
