Raekwon, "A Pinebox Story"

Raekwon's new video might have been filmed in the basement of one of the abandoned buildings where Chris and Snoop would take people who wound up on the wrong side of Marlo on The Wire. That is a place you really don't want to be. The song describes a similar scenario. And it's graphic and horrible. But with its gorgeous beat (constructed by North Carolinian producer 9th Wonder out of an old soul song that I wish I knew but don't) and Raekwon's tantalizing rhymes, it's wonderful, too.

9th Wonder is from North Carolina, not Virginia as originally stated. Post fixed thanks to an email from a careful reader.

I do not know about you, but I really enjoy this short video. I understand that hiring a professional video editor was the key for this success. My only regret is that I would have loved to see more, the beat is phenomenal and I am a big fan of Snoop. Maybe in the future they will consider doing it in another location and it looks a bit too grim for my pleasure.
