''It Reminded Me of Myself...''
Wu-Tang lyricist Raekwon has given his stamp of approval to hip hop newcomer Napoleon Da Legend. In a recent interview Rae said that the "Oxygen" single by Napoleon reminded him of how he was as a young burgeoning rap star in the early 90s.
"When I first heard the beat by Napoleon Da Legend, I knew it was gonna be special, but when I heard his vocals and the beat combined, it reminded me of myself being a hungry cat coming up, 'bout to take the game by storm," Rae told SOHH. "I'm very conscious about who I record with far as new artists is concerned, but when I wrote my verse I followed his lead because it was so powerful. It was that great that I [was] contemplating about buying the record from him. But this will be a cat y'all will be hearing from in the near future I'm co-signing that!"
