Best Raekwon Songs of All Time!

#25. Molasses ft. Rick Ross & Ghostface Killah – I think I’ve said this once before, but Rick Ross is a underrated lyricist! If being able to keep up with Ghost and Rae on a track isn’t impressive enough, Ross also has a pretty deep ghost writing career as well. Nobody should be questioning this man’s hip hop credentials. He’s legit!…

#24. Catalina ft. Lyfe Jennings – Dr. Dre on the production of this track really brought a completely different vibe to the Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. II album. In comparison to what we’re use to seeing Rae rap on, this “Caribbean” inspired instrumental stands out for being one of Rae’s very best…

#23. The Reign – I love the production that was done on “The Wild” album! Raekwon really embraced a newer and different type of sound for this album, and I personally think that it paid off… Similar to the Ghostface “Apollo Kids” album that came out a few years back, “The Wild” brought something fresh and new to the table from an artist who has been around for over 20 years. That’s quite the impressive feat…

#22. Surgical Gloves – Surgical gloves… Like cutting through shit… Yeah that’s an extremely fitting title for this song for sure. The beat on this joint gets absolutely shredded up no doubt…

#21. Wu-Tang Clan – Duck Seazon – Probably one of my favorite song titles ever! Shit doesn’t get harder than naming your song “Duck Seazon”. It’s bada$$ on so many levels!…

#20. Knuckleheadz ft. Ghostface Killah & U-God – A great opening song to a all time classic album!…

#19. Live from New York – As a follow up album to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, the Immobilarity album was a huge disappointment… But!!! … Live From New York is definitely that jam though!…

#18. Guillotine (Swordz) ft. Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah & GZA – This song was almost left off this list in favor of the song “100 Rounds”, but that music video featuring a dingy looking Floyd Mayweather really killed that track for me… Making “Money Mayweather” look like some Rocky scrub is blasphemy IMO…

#17. Glaciers of Ice ft. Ghostface Killah & Masta Killa – “My seeds, run with his seeds, marry his seeds. That’s how we keep Wu-Tang money all up in the family.”… Precisely!…

#16. Alphabet Soup – This song is a “showcase” of mic skills like none other! Rapping on a song while going in alphabetical order can’t be easy… As a demonstration of this I will now attempt this very feat!…. Okay… Okay… I’m going innn… Alphabetically order, I slay whores. Bounce on their brains till there’s now more. Cherry colored 6’4 on their asses. Demolishing my foes. eradicating these hoes. From my life forever. G’d Up. Harrowingly escaping capture. Instant gratification after. Joking about the shits till I’m blue in the face. Killing shit is just my hobby. Losing… My mind. Never second guessing a crime. Obsessing… Professing… Okay… Fuck this shit, Raekwon you a savage for pulling this off! Mad prop’s to you god…

#15. Wu-Tang Clan – Heaterz – This track lives up to its name… From a strictly lyrical standpoint. Wu-Tang Forever May be the Wu’s best album point blank period, and that’s including all of the solo albums as well…

#14. Heaven & Hell ft. Ghostface Killah – Such an unorthodox sounding Wu-Tang song! This joint kinda had a weird/eerie demeanor to it, but nobody can hate on this shit because this song is exceptionally dope…. Rae and Ghost get on their Nas (save the people) tip, and there’s not really much else to say… real people rapping about real issues will always be a good thing in my book…

#13. State of Grace – How did this track not make it onto an official Rae album???… It must of been a weird timing thing I guess…

#12. Rich and Black ft. Nas – Proof that real emcee’s skills do not have an expiration date….

#11. Knowledge God – “Yo why’s my niggas always yellin’ that broke shit. Let’s get money Son, now you want to smoke shit. Chill God, yo the Son don’t chill Allah. What’s today’s mathematic’s Son? Knowledge God.”… I’m not even sure what this chorus means exactly, but it’s so ill sounding that I can look past that… “What’s today’s mathematic’s Son? Knowledge God.”… I can’t be the only person who is memorized by that “line”. Is Rae insinuating that knowledge is worth more than money? Or is it something deeper then that?…

#10. Criminology ft. Ghostface Killah – Ghost was featured so much on Cuban Linx that they just stop putting his name in the credits of  a lot of the tracks… Treating Ghost like some no name R&B singer?… That’s scandalous bruh… In all seriousness though, I’m sure he was cool with it…

#09. Wu-Tang Clan – Can It Be All So Simple – I think this the most “underrated” Wu-Tang song of all time! You think that a song from the Wu’s classic debut album “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 chambers)” couldn’t be called underrated, but this is one of the most “slept on” track’s in Wu-Tang’s entire discography…

#08. Verbal Intercourse ft. Nas – I enjoy making bold proclamations on my list so here we go… NO ONE in the history of rap music has every “jumped” onto an instrumental better then Nas did on this song! The beat goes a “mile a second”, and the way that Nas keeps up with instrumental is nothing short of “super human”…

#07. Ice Cream ft. Ghostface & Method Man – Definitely one the funnest Wu-Tang songs out there. “Gravel Pit” and “Uzi (Pinky Ring)” are also really fun Wu tracks that I couldn’t find a place for on this list , so I figured that I might as well “shout them out” here…

#06. Wu-Tang Clan – It’s Yourz –“Machine gun rap for all my n****’z in the back”… that’s definition of classic hip hop IMO…

#05. Wu-Tang Clan – Triumph – Did you know that Cappadonna was originally supposed to be an “official” member of the Wu-Tang Clan, but he was incarcerated during the development of “The 36 Chambers” album. Cappadonna did not appear on the first album, and was basically then relegated to being the “unofficial” 10th member of the Wu-Tang Clan for eternity…

#04. Wu-Tang Clan – Da Mystery of Chessboxin’ – “I got a list, here’s the order of my list that it’s in, It goes”… Ghostface, Raekwon, O.D.B and Method, RZA from Gravediggaz, GZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and then Masta Killah, “So when” Cappadonna doesn’t get “put on this list, the shit does not offend me”… You see, technically  Cappadonna isn’t even an “official” Wu Member so why should that offend me, ya know…

#03. Wu-Tang Clan – Protect Ya Neck – The Question: How many Wu-Tang Clan songs feature all of their members performing at their very best? The Answer: This one…

#02. Wu-Tang Clan – C.R.E.A.M. This is my favorite Wu track of all time! It was the first Wu-Tang song that i ever heard, and it has remained to be my very favorite Wu-Tang song  a whole week later… That’s the testament of a really good song…(This is a joke by the way… or is it…) AHHH Boga Boga!!! (or what ever people write when their trying to scare you)… Man this “annotation” really went “off the rails”… Moving on…

#01. Incarcerated Scarfaces – When you think of Raekwon the rapper, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx should be the first thing to come to your mind…. When you think of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx the album, this should be the first song that comes to mind, thus Incarcerated Scarfaces earns the top spot on my least based on that deductive reasoning alone… Oh, and your welcome…
