Raekwon – “Molasses” F. Rick Ross & Ghostface Killah

With Raekwon’s new album Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang less than two weeks away from release the Chef premiered his latest joint “Molasses”. The new track is produced by long-time No I.D. collaborator Xtreme and features Rick Ross and Ghostface Killah. The song uses a familiar sample by Ann Peebles “Trouble, Heartaches & Sadness” which you may remember on “Shadowboxing” off GZA’s Liquid Swords album. “Molasses” is a really solid track. Based on the few songs that have been released Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang is shaping up to be a really good album. If the confirmed Black Thought and Nas features don’t get you excited I don’t know what to say. Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang is set to drop March 8th you can pre-order on iTunes or Amazon now.

  1. Its good but it aint all that. Ive heard tons of hiphop the last 5 years thats a helluva lot more creative than this. Also, this beat has been used in several Wu-tang joints before..just saying.

  2. i feel you. but the truth is i love music. and i hate the way hip hop has been represented over the last 5 years or so. maybe i speak too much but for someone who has been listening to hip hop for a very longtime sometimes you miss that feeling of good music that’s similar to what you heard in the 90s.

    you don’t always want to listen to 90s hip hop over and over again to make your ‘hearing’ happy. so every now and then you get a joint like this one that gives you that bump.

    real talk.


  3. Just say you like the track. You don’t always have to give a eulogy about 90’s hip-hop…lol I’m just saying.

  4. Every now and the you have to smile at how good hip hop used to be and then you have a track like this that had me smiling all the way through.

    now this is what im talking about.

    there’s that feeling in the air.

    this track represents everything great about hip hop.
    i haven’t been impressed with alot of so called eastcoast artists for a while now.

    but everyone knows hip hop is at its best when the eastcoast is at its best.

    i probably would have left out rick ross and had Nas or AZ doing that second verse but besides that im pretty happy.

    actually for a second i imagined biggie was about to rap that second verse. lol.

    but like i was saying there seems to be alot of artists rapping over 90s inspired beats all of a sudden. and since every eastcoast artist wants to make a sequel to some of there older albums maybe we might just get some great music this year.

    fingers crossed.

    and before anyone says im living in the past. and hip hop shouldn’t go backwards.

    its not going backwards its only going back to certain standards.

    hip hop lost its standards. the 90s was its peak. and thats what we need in hip hop. we need to go to a respectable level of music. the 90s had that.
