for a 43-year-old rapper, this is a good EP. what else can you expect
I wonder what the theme of FILA is going to be. I liked Shaolin vs Wu-Tang cuz of the whole concept, but I don't know what this one is all about. cocaine? Cuban Linx III has that covered already
First beat sounds nice and like it is from an old record and the way Rae is sitting, reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock. He should do that thing Hitchcock does at the beginning of his show with the silhouette for a vid. Just a thought. Cuz he is like the rap Hitchcock.
Both tunes are heavy and this sounds like the 90's Rae.
^^RIght post in wrong thread. Ignore.
Yep, i'm as big a Rae fan as anyone, which is why CL2 was disappointing considering the great beats and features.

the last two Rae albums (CL2 and SvWT) both followed a similar pattern: very strong opening (tracks 1-9), then shit goes downhill. go back and listen to cuban linx 2. you're all "ahh yeah, Flying Daggers, Gihad, Black Mozart, Pyrex vision, Sonny's missing, New Wu, Cold outside....................." and then shit falls apart.
same thing with shaolin vs wu tang: title track, Silver rings, butter knives, snake pond, chop chop ninja, and right after Rich and Black (easily the best track) is done, you're left scratching your head.....until the very end when you get one or two decent tracks
