New Music: Richie Cunning - Salute

     If you have ever seen the movie Juice then you need to stop what you are doing right now and check out the latest track from the beast known as Richie Cunning. In an homage to the god MC Rakim, Richie goes raw on the Know The Ledge beat and takes no prisoners. In a message from Richie he talks about taking on a classic:
     "Stepping to a classic is not a task that any emcee should take lightly. For just that reason it isn't something that I have done very many times in my career. About a month ago, I was shooting pool in my neighborhood dive and Juice (Know The Ledge) came on the jukebox. I hadn't heard it in a while, and the fact that it was sandwiched into a playlist of current popular rap songs made it hit me like a suckerpunch to the gut. Rakim's flow is simply undeniable. The chops, the swing, the delivery, the tone... emcees don't (or can't) rhyme like that anymore. I took a shot at it. Check it out. I hope you enjoy my salute to the God, Rakim Allah."

Hit play and judge for yourself. Shout out to the Rec League crew. Salute the gods.
