Mixtape Review: Raekwon - 'Unexpected Victory' (Includes Free Download)


Raekwon the chef has been on a serious roll for the past three years, seemingly making up valuable time lost in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.  He now offers a mixtape to tide fans over until he can accommodate them with something a bit more filling.  The between meal snack is titled Unexpected Victory, and features plethora of shaolin soldiers in training, as well guest appearances from fellow lyrical kingpins.  The collection reveals its chief architect’s varied musical tastes, while also exposing his artistic limitations.
