should I rake new top soil before planting grass seed
Please define new.

Top 4-6"'of soil should be worked up in an ideal situation.

Never just throw out seed on an unprepared surface and expect it to grow, some will, but most won't.

Proper prep is vital to the successful planting of most anything.
