Raekwon the chief is one of the most talented from the very talented rap group Wu-Tang Clan. He is famous for his storytelling skills and his very recognizable voice.
Every precedent album he has released was very good. It is the same for the Wild.
The album consists in 16 tracks. 3 skits in the 16 tracks.
This album will not take you out of your comfort zone, meaning that he is doing business as usual.
A few guests are featuring like Cee Lo Green from the Goody Mob Atlanta based rap group (originally), Lil Wayne, P.U.R.E. (I don’t know him), Andra Day and G-Easy.
The album is well produced with loud bass, a groovy style.
Most of the samples are taken from the 60-70’s era.
Here is the list of tracks that caught my ears more than the others:
“Nothing” is very reminiscent of the old Wu-Tang productions
Cee Lo Green is shining as usual on the track “Marvin”.
Lil Wayne gives a very good featuring on the track “My Corner”.
“Visiting Hours” with a very nice featuring from Andra Day.
“Crown of thorns” … Excellent.
“Purple Brick Road” Another great featuring with G-Easy.
I am not going to say that this album will put you in a great mood or want to make you dance. Its atmosphere is a bit on the gloomy side. There is something wild about it.
It is definitely a good acquisition. I have enjoyed listening to this album since I got it back in 2018.
