Riff: Raekwon – “Lead Season”

Jan 21, 2013

Blowin’ cheeba, dumpin’ ashes/The class of last year, that’ll throw your head through the glass

from Lead Season lyrics by Raekwon

Mediocre breaks and lame duck guitar riffs equate to an uninspired Raekwon. “Lead Season” is just past the halfway point of the album and already it seems like Rae’s losing interest. He’s not bringing his ‘A’-game, and it shows.
