EDITORS’ NOTES

Wu-Tang workhorse Raekwon has kept impressively high standards over the past 20 years, turning low-key street epics into a cottage industry. Toning down the slick production of 2015’s Fly International Luxurious Art, The Wild returns to the gritty boom-bap of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx—variations on a theme that the rapper still manages to make vivid and fresh, from the tense “M&N” to the touching “Marvin,” a tribute to Marvin Gaye.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Where's Ghostface?

No Ghostface? It just doesn't seem right to me. It's a good album, but it seems a little empty without the Wu.

Dope.

Off a "friends" recommendation I purchased Drake's album. He is no longer liv-..ahem... a friend of mine. Raekwon has restored my audible palette to normal.
