Raekwon the Chef is one of the most descriptive emcees in Hip-Hop history. Every wrinkle, shade, and intricate detail from his memory and imagination is splattered across his discography with an entire Pantone chart’s worth of colorful language.
“Never Can Say Goodbye” is one of the better recent examples of Rae’s unmatched storytelling ability. Over a soul drenched sample, Rae weaves old memories of his family and coming of age tales with pulpy crime lord fly sh*t straight from a Brian De Palma flick.
