In his new video, Raekwon hangs in a basement smoking blunts and letting his champagne chill in an orange cooler. Sounds normal enough until you realize that the song’s called “A Pinebox Story” and the Chef and his boys are dealing with a dead body whose situation is told through the Wu-Tang member’s song.
The track is produced by 9th Wonder, who cuts the vocal sample in such a way that sounds like a person choking up. Definitely a standout from Rae’s latest mixtape, Unexpected Victory, which you can pick up if you haven’t yet. Watch the “Pinebox” video below. [NR]
