Ghostface Killa and Raekwon Join Forces to Elevate Ninja Rap With 'We Ain't Come to Lose'

Fans of the Foot and Wu-Tang Clans rejoice.

Tribute Games is releasing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge this month, and it appears to be the best kind of throwback.

Publisher Dotemu says the latest release in the long-running turtle's franchise "gnarly game design takes you back to the ’80s," and with most of the original voice cast on board the nostalgia is thick. But for music fans its the inevitable joining of forces with New York's other greatest martial arts family that delivers the hype.

Wu-Tang's Ghostface Killah and Raekwon the Chef's contribution of “We Ain’t Came to Lose" to the soundtrack cements the ties between dysfunctional warrior brotherhoods while at the same time offering franchise fans something Vanilla Ice's "Ninja Rap" could never do — a certifiable TMNT banger.

Peppered with bars harder than a roundhouse kick to the head the track elevates ninja-rap to an art form:

With heroes in the half shell going to war, got the city on the siege and they holdin’ the fort, got extra-large pizza boxes all on the floor, get sized up by negative thoughts, your time’s up on whatever you thought, individual starvin’ the floor, so the samurai’s sword on point for the course, dangerous metals, high like the rain and Terra, the twilight meets the brain of Shredder, all for one and trained together…

The move comes seven years after the Pharma Bro, Martin Shkreli, caused a great imbalance in the music world's Chi by snapping up the only copy of the Wu-Tang Clan's last album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" — which at the time meant most of us would be dead by the time the group's seventh studio effort would be commercially available (2103) thanks to an ironclad purchaser's agreement.

Following Shkreli's incarceration for securities fraud "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" was seized by federal agents to help pay his debts and eventually sold in 2021 to crypto collective PleasrDAO for $4 million. PleasrDAO said they hoped to make it more widely accessible, but until then this effort from two of the group's finest should help satiate Wu-Tang fans' thirst for new music from the Slums of Shaolin.
