Album: Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This joint features Raekwon's Wu-Tang colleague Ghostface Killah and Rick Ross. He explained to Billboard magazine how he got the latter MC onboard: "Ross is a good friend of mine. Ross did things for me before and I had done something on his last album Teflon Don, and it was just a favor returned. I felt I had something that I wanted to try him on and give him that Wu-Tang flavor and see if he could rep over it, and he jumped in and handled his business. I told him what I was doing and he was like 'Yo, I'm down. I'm a big fan.'"
