Raekwon ft. Melanie Fiona - Soundboy Kill It
After 20-plus years of excellence on the mic, Raekwon hardly needs any extra encouragement to murder a beat. On the other hand, if you could have Melanie Fiona cheering you on while you worked, can you honestly say you wouldn’t jump at the chance? The Booth-acclaimed R&B songstress’ moral support clearly doesn’t hurt, as the Wu-Tang vet manages to kill it even deader than usual on Soundboy Kill It, the latest single off his fifth studio album. Jerry Wonda mans the mixing boards on this gritty cut, crafting up a spare, sample-driven canvas for Rae’s masterful street lyricism. Fans will be able to find this joint, the equally bloodthirsty Son of Sam and many more bangers on the Chef’s Fly International Luxurious Art LP, due out later this year.
