Raekwon “Back Stabbers (Remix)”
TBT #17 takes it back to the 70s as the Chef rhymes fast over The O’Jays “Back Stabbers”. In fact, it’s not often that Raekwon raps this fast lately. On top of that, you may recognize the melody of the original in Elijah Blake’s single last year with Common: “X.O.X.” That drove me crazy until I realized the connection. Alas, good vibes to kick off your morning below.
