Just like Raekwon’s last Throwback Thursday entry (), the Wu Tang Clan’s esteemed Chef is back to the kitchen mixing up another soul classic.

Producer Amerigo Gazaway returns with the latest addition to his Soul Mate series — his mashup skills already well established with the Yasiin Gaye Marvin Gaye x Mos Def mixtape (and don’t forget about Part II as well).
