Some of the best work Raekwon's been doing lately is when he comes out of nowhere and raps straight through the song, with no choruses for like two minutes, over some minimal late-'70s/early '80s downtown New York dance shit. He did it on MF Doom's last album with "Yessir" over ESG's "UFO," and now he's got the excellently named, Alchemist-produced "Wallys and Pringles" freestyle over little more than a bongo drum and the occasional bass stab. The only thing that could make this better is an appearance by Ghostface. Side note: Did Raekwon finally make a song about the famous photo shoot the above picture is from?
