Planet Asia & Raekwon Offer “No Apologies” for Being Dope (Listen & Download)

Posted by Nathan S. on 02/27/12 | Filed under Raekwon, Download, Planet Asia
I don't want to be one of those old hip-hop heads who spend his days complaining about how everything was better way back when, refusing to play anything other than a handful of EPMD and De La Soul albums until they die. I really don't. But as much as I try to expand my musical boundaries, I just can't seem to get away from my roots. As soon as a track like "No Apologies" comes on my head starts automatically nodding - and fuck it, I'm not apologizing.

One of the west coast's true vets, Planet Asia, reached across the country to the impeccable Raekwon for "No Apologies", picking up a soulful, smoothed out beat from Oh No! that's a far cry from the dark work he just wrapped up with Gangrene. This is some of that real shit - word to The Chef and word to grilled cheese.

If you're digging what you're hearing be sure to cop Asia's "Black Belt Theater" album, also featuring Kweli, Ras Kass and more, coming out tomorrow (2/28) and available for pre-order right now. Enjoy, and don't ever apologize for being an old school hip-hop head.
