Raekwon featuring Estelle “All About You”
As history has proven over and over again, it’s a very rare occurrence when a Wu Tang + R&B hook recipe doesn’t end up equating sheer dopeness.
Raekwon‘s “All About You” (a track originally heard all tagged up on Funkmaster Flex’s recent Who You Mad At? Me Or Yourself? mixtape and one that could possibly end up a future entry on his forthcoming F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) solo release) is a bit slicker than your average utilization of the formula–thanks to longtime hitmaker/ producer Jerry Wonda hooking up a triumphant blast of horn-seasoned summery soul for the backdrop and Estelle blessing the chorus with a polished radio-ready presence, but the good Chef knows just what to do to balance things out, his serving of wide-screen cinematic imagination and NYC mafioso braggadocio giving this hood romance tale just the right dose of concrete jungle toughness.
