Capone-N-Noreaga and Raekwon, "The Reserves"

Raekwon’s got drugs from the Philippines. Capone has guns from Czechoslovakia. Nore’s got a headband from Afghanistan. This exciting new song from beloved Queens rap duo CNN and their Wu-Tang pal Raekwon the Chef is full of international intrigue. The video keeps it in NYC, and plays like an episode of “The Wire” with much worse acting. It was directed by Janelle Abraham (a “Bad Bish,” according to the hip-hop-lady-and-bikini-made-out-of-$100-dollar-bills website, who started out as a “video model” before understudying with Spike Lee and eventually getting behind the camera. Nice!
