90's Jams #27: Raekwon "Ice Cream" (1995)

One of RZA's most hauntingly dark and sinister samples of course had to be used for backing Wu-Tang's official glorious ode to misogyny, almost suggesting "I got my eye on you" to all the lovely ladies of the world, almost the exact opposite of LL Cool J's "I Need Love" from 10 years earlier. Raekwon, Ghostface, Cappadonna and Method Man take turns comparing different shades of ladies to their favorite flavors of ice cream in a very non-PC manner... And the 90's was the decade of political correctness, so in case anyone was wondering, this song defines badass.. By the way, you KNOW Ghostface didn't just namedrop Adina Howard for no reason...
