Cormega, aka one of New York hip-hop’s most overlooked rappers, is gearing up to release not a new album but a two-disc affair combining the finest material in his catalog and remixes from live band the Revelations. On the first disc of Raw Forever, you’ll find classic tracks from the Queens native like “Saga” and “Dead Man Walking” for what is essentially a greatest hits-style affair.
But on the second disc, there’s a slew of original tunes and remixes with some help from the Revelations, who you know for their work on the Wu-Tang Clan’s Chamber Music and Legendary Weapons. It also contains guest appearances from the likes of Big Daddy Kane, AZ, Blaq Poet, Tragedy Khadafi, M.O.P., and many others.
Raw Forever is due out Sept. 27.
