Last week, Raekwon released the first of a series of tracks that sample his favorite classic records. He’s now debuted the second, titled “Stop Tripping.”
The Chef waxes poetics over 90s R&B singer Horace Brown’s soulful groove, “Trippin” this time around. Brown’s smooth vocals are silenced until the end of the track, leaving it up to Rae to please listeners with an intricate story. Rhymes like, “In a stripper warehouse in Vegas/ Celebrities cater/ Serenading b*tches, I was just finagling,” are further proof that the legendary Wu-Tang Clan spitter has age gracefully as a MC.
Raekwon’s previous cut, “Wishing On A Star,” samples Rose Royce’s fan-favorite tune.
