Heated Nights

Album: Fly International Luxurious Art (2015)


  • This song finds Raekwon thinking back to the evening that, sitting on the stove, he wrote his verse for Wu-Tang's 1993 enduring single "C.R.E.A.M.."

    Raekwon told Billboard magazine this is his favorite track on Fly International Luxurious Art, "because it feels so close to a 'C.R.E.A.M.' 2015-style."

    He added: "It is the same kind of energy, I guess. I wanted to make sure that that was felt on this album, as well."
