Raekwon Teams Up With Melanie Fiona on ‘Soundboy Kill It’
The song, produced by Jerry Wonda, boasts a thunderous beat and a whip-crackling snare and echoing sounds.
Rae keeps it hood, spitting braggadocio flows mixed in with criminology talk.
“It was real / You couldn’t stop it / It’s all night killin’ them / Step out, it’s money up tonight, all billin’ / First round, you down sit down clown killa / I’m rap justice / Put you down, my n—-,” he raps.
Fiona provides the yearning hook, which gives the song a little Caribbean vibe.
As for Rae’s ‘Soundboy Kill It’ track, it will appear on his upcoming project, ‘F.I.L.A.’ (Fly International Luxurious Art). The Wu-Tang Clan member describes the album as “colorful” global music.
“It’s not just music that allows me to sit in one box. I want to make an album where people in London or people in Germany will love it,” he told HipHopDX. “There are certain sounds I want to explore and not make it just a hardcore album from a hardcore emcee. I just want it to be universal — I want it to have stuff for the radio and for the hardest emcee’s. I want to mix it up and make it global and fly.”
