Raekwon Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, 23rd Anniversary


We've likely debated the greatest solo album from the Wu-Tang Clan already, but generally (for me) it comes down to the time of year you ask me: in the winter, I'm rollin' with GZA's Liquid Swords, because it's a perfect winter album, but the rest of the year I'm on Rae's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. It was released 23 years ago today (August 1st 1995) and it's aged like a true classic in my opinion; it just keeps getting better with time. Dig in the crates and pull this one out today; run it like it was like '95. Much respect to Ghostface Killah, who has a number of classics of his own in his catalog!
