Harold Stallworth fell to the third round of the draft.

Shallah Raekwon is more observant than the secret service. He whips the Call of Duty Wrangler, frequents warehouses furnished with strippers, punches holes through his lady’s drywall partitions, and occasionally serenades bitches. These are just a few of the devilish details from “Stop Tripping,” the second installment of his Throwback Thursday freestyle series. For the first week of summer, he tackles “Tripping,” a lesser known Horace Brown single that was released on Andre Harrell’s mid-90s iteration of Motown. Presumably, these loosies will serve to promote Rae’s sixth solo album, which has been forthcoming for well over 18 months. He’s cool, poised, stoic over syrupy post-new jack swing production. It’s a welcome respite from Wu-Tang infighting and imprudent pop singles.
