And it “Don’t Stop.” Wu-Tang Clan delivers another banger as part of Mass Appeal’s Silicon Valley soundtrack.
Over a haunting instrumental, Raekwon kicks things off with a nod to the group’s “C.R.E.A.M.” classic. “Cash rules everything around me,” raps The Chef. “I’m fresh out the slum / Rich bum ni**a, now I live dumb / We talk about that C.R.E.A.M., leaning in the Tower of Pisa / Seven visas got condos in the jungle.”
Method Man also drops a reference to Raekwon’s verse off “C.R.E.A.M.” during his show-stopping appearance. “So let’s start it with this, son,” he raps. “Motivate ’em with this one / If you ain’t got no haters, go get some.”
Meanwhile, Inspectah Deck points to Irv Gotti’s reign as Murder Inc.’s leader. “Own boss, no third party,” he raps. “Produce more murder than Irv Gotti / Like I’m working on my third body / Deck kill it quick / 24/7 bed rest, that’s how ill it get.”
The “Silicon Valley” soundtrack also features DJ Shadow, Nas, Danny Brown, Too $hort, and Hudson Mohawke. Now in its fifth season, “Silicon Valley” airs Sundays on HBO. Listen to “Don’t Stop” below.
