CLOSE

Younger music heads may think that Raekwon’s #TBT releases are little obscure at times, but he’s actually putting on for his era. The legend returns in his 12th week with a rendition of Gwen Guthrie’s funky 1986 single “(They Long To Be) Close To You.”

The Chef treats his version, titled “Close To You,” with a dexterous verse that paints a vivid picture of the braggadocio that comes with being a hustler. Stream the cut below and listen to Raekwon’s previous #TBT cut here.
