Drake - "Wu-Tang Forever" (Cookin Soul Remix)


Cookin' Soul takes a stab at doctoring up Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever" - a single from Drizzy's forthcoming third LP Nothing Was The Same that samples the Clan's 1997 classic "It's Yourz" - with a harder track. The Drake offering is an exercise in irony that references the Wu but doesn't truly pay homage to the group. Considering the rugged image, grimy soul driven production and inescapable presence of the Wu-Tang Clan's catalog, it seems pretty odd that Drake declines to spit with conviction or put aside his penchant for love songs long enough to drop a verse that could pass as something even remotely relevant to the title he chose. That said, Cookin' Soul have made it their business to breathe new life into the song with a bunch of Wu-Tang samples that allow it to retain all of the hallmarks of a Drake track without losing sight of the Wu-Tang Clan's legacy. Thanks to Cookin' Soul this joint can now attempt to punch its way out of a wet paper bag. Thankfully the Wu has been pretty gracious in response to this joint. Check the Cookin' Soul remix of Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever" below. Scroll down to peep Inspectah Deck's reaction.
