One of those records that I knew I’d like going into it. The beat for Raekwon’s verses is gritty, and the Chef puts down a slick flow to match. Melanie’s melody for the chorus is instantly infectious and something fresh for close fans of hers to hear. Needless to say, a strong 1st release off the upcoming album, Fly Luxurious International Art (F.I.L.A.).
I also have a personal, heartwarming feeling for this collab because Raekwon and Melanie Fiona were 2 of the first 3 mainstream artists I conducted video interviews with back in 2009. So to see both positive and supporting artists of GWHH combining for such a quality record is great to see!
The CDQ/no tags version of "All About You", which first appeared on Funkmaster Flex's Who You Mad At? Me Or Yourself? mixtape.
Diggin' this collab a lot, simply put. All parties involved do their thing. Chef cooks up some dope verses with Estelle sounding a little different than I'm accustomed to (in a good way). Jerry Wonda on the production, complimenting both artists' very different sounds.
