Published Jul 25, 2012Chicago label Closed Sessions has been bringing out both hip-hop vets and upstarts for their compilation series. Representing the former is one of the Wu-Tang Clan's many beloved MCs, Raekwon, for new number "Keep It Politics." The track appears on the recently released Closed Sessions Vol. 2, and you can stream it down below.
According to RubyHornet, Raekwon recorded the track during a two-day visit to Chicago. After hearing a handful of beats, the rapper settled on DJ Babu's marimba-assisted beat for "Keep It Politics" because it gave off a RZA vibe.
On it, the Chef spits soft but fiercely about hustlers, cash, and the rap game while soulful guitar stabs and an earnest boom-bap play in the background.
