Wu-Tang vet, Raekwon, kicks off 2013 with the release of the hyped mixtape/EP Lost Jewelry, his first new release since Unexpected Victory from early 2012.

The EP is comprised of 11 new tracks with just a handful of guests, including Faith Evans, Freddie Gibbs, Maino and Altrina Renee. On the production side, producers Scram Jones, Buckwild, DJ Thoro, Statik Selektah, Frank G. and Roads-Art all contributed.

1. "A King's Chariot" (Prod. by Statik Selektah)
2. "Prince Of Thieves" (Prod. By Scram Jones)
3. "Young Boy Penalties (Prod. By Scram Jones)
4. "Hold You Down" ft. Faith Evans (Prod. By Buckwild)
5. "For The Listeners" (Prod. By Vin Da Chin)

7. "New Day" ft. Freddie Gibbs (Prod. By Roads-Art)

    Pretty good for a EP/Mixtape. Rae still sound hungry. Hopefully he brings that to his next album, but the production should be a little better.

    That Whatever Whenever joint is ill though. Rae may be damn near 50 but he can still lace those crime raps.

    That New Day track is nice... I'll have to check it out. Rae has had a huge comeback over the last few years (starting with OBCL2)

    lol why does Rae keep wasting money on making music videos? He's never going to be on 106 and Park, and nobody buying his album will be swayed one way or the other by videos.

    Ever heard of the internet?..

    Niggas ain't need TV in years to keep up with an artist's output of music videos..

    Look at Joey Bada$$ for example.. he got two vids with over a million views a piece.. he wouldn't have got that type of love on 106 and Pop, lol..

    Ya'll sit around an watch his videos? Really?

    Come on, stop it. Nobody watches them shits. I got every one of Rae's albums and not one video influenced a buy. He's wasting his own money. And if this is money he's got set aside for promoting albums, then better invest it into booking shows, touring, and other better ideas.

    You dudes are missing the point. Would stop listening to Rae if he didn't make these videos? No. Would not have copped the EP if he didn't make this video? No. So the point is, from a business standpoint, there is no reason for him to make these videos. Yes, there is some artistry to music videos, but by and large their major purpose was to always generate interest in an artist and their works. Nowadays that's not nearly as important. Why do you think MTV and BET don't even show videos much anymore. For someone like Rae, it's even less important because the only people who will even watch his videos are people who already his fans and already supporting making it a waste of money for him.

    You like the videos, great. It doesn't change the fact that it's waste for him.

    lol I'm not complaning. You dudes are dense or something. I'm saying from Rae's standpoint he doesn't have to waste money on videos. He made like 6 of them for SvW and even most people who bought the album probably never watched them. Again if ya'll like them, that's cool. I'm not knocking that. I'm just saying it's a waste of money on Rae's part.

    Bruh you're not everybody. Yes I do enjoy watching some videos. Especially with emcees like Rae who tell a story on 70% of their tracks. It just puts his bars in better perspective IMO.

    Also, have you not stopped to think, maybe he's trying to gain NEW fans? ... Shit I know from my POV, I'm much more likely to listen to a new song if it has a video rather than just audio.

    Where did I say that I was everybody? It's a fact that videos don't have the impact they once did. That's not just for me that's for the media sector in general. Lots of artists have abandoned videos, so why are you acting like me suggesting that Rae do this too is some kind of crazy idea.

    Again, if this video didn't exist would you have passed on the EP?
    Have you ever heard a song that you didn't like but went and copped an album because the video was good?

    If your answer to those questions is "no" then your point doesn't really hold any weight.
