Last March, Raekwon released his seventh studio album The Wild, a gem that overall reflects on his stance as a hip-hop icon after over two decades of verbal exploit. Just days before his birthday, The Chef dropped two new songs, seemingly a scope into what he has in store for 2018, “The Spy” and “The Biz.”

Released through his record label Ice H20 Records, “The Biz” samples golden hip-hop era icon Biz Markie‘s 1988 classic “Nobody Beats The Biz,” offering a pretty snappy fusion. The track is only one minute and 50 seconds long, yet Rae hops right into his emcee stance delivering freestyle like bars.

Produced by RoadArts, the Wu-Tang Clan emcee serves a fairly familiar signature vibe over the simmering keyboard infested instrumental in “The Sky” dropping trails of his braggadocios approach.

Perhaps, the release of the two singles is Only Built 4 Cuban Linx legend’s way of alerting the masses he has another gem on the way. Let’s appreciate Raekwon’s consistency. There is a reason why Wu-Tang is for the babies. Go ahead and listen to The Chef’s latest singles “The Spy” and “The Biz”, below via Soundcloud.
