Raekwon returns this week with another "throwback thursday" track with his remix of "Close To You," originally by Gwen Guthrie.

The Chef lays down streets lyrics by painting a picture of his outfit along with blowing money and toting guns.

The smooth beat doesn't seem to be phased by his lyrics as he continues to capture his style in some precious oldies. Before releasing the track he tweeted, "Y'all know what time it is!!! #tbt."

Last week's throwback thursday came with his freestyles over two classic songs from Michael Jackson, "Got To Be There" from Jackson's Jackson 5 days and "The Girl Is Mine" which featured Paul McCartney.

Meanwhile, "A Better Tomorrow" is available for pre-order for fans who want the album as soon as it drops.
