RAEKWON – I WANNA KNOW (FT. T.I. & DOE B)
Raekwon is one of those artists that you just rock with. You don’t know why, but it doesn’t make sense not to. At the same time you wish he would hit those high bars that he sometimes falls short of doing in his career. We all are the same, which is not perfect. So like any artist, “The Chef” can only give you what he can when he releases music. The point is more so made when you listen to his epic classic “Only Built 4 Cubin Links”. He and Ghostface were phenomenal. At the same time it just isn’t fair to trap another person in your vision of their light. So it’s been a pleasure to listen to Raekwon get better with age.
This track “I Wanna Know” featuring T.I. & Doe B (R.I.P You had next for real) makes you feel good about that classic street gangster rap. Sounds crazy, but Hip-hop is in place where what you want to listen to should come from great authors similar to books. The more authentic, and charasmitic the artistic author the better the quality of music. In this case Raekwon is one of the best to spit it, T.I. always hits you with that right street suave. DOE B? Well for a new artist he sits right at the table holding his own. Sorry for the exposition before the position, but I just want to quantify why this track by Raekwon is just bottom line dope. Take a listen.
