Raekwon continues to warm up for his Lost Jewelry EP with a freestyle over the instrumental to Biggie‘s ’95 classic, the controversial “Who Shot Ya“
I’ve no idea whether the Wu-Tang emcee has covered the track before, but it’s a pleasure to hear an East Coast OG drop some bars over a beat made famous by Brooklyn’s long lost king, and as usual, The Chef doesn’t disappoint. Moving over those chilling piano keys with sure-footed ease, he kills it with his vivid wordplay, floating into the hood in a hot air balloon and painting it with animal imagery, saying he might have to call his next album “The Wild” to reflect the concrete jungle he’s lived in.
Lost Jewelry has been pushed back to a January release date. Listen to “Who Shot Ya” below and download the freestyle for free:
