2008 release containing the instrumental version of this album from the Wu Tang member, originally released in 1995. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx's portraits of big-money drug deals and black underworld kingpins living in luxury had an enormous influence on the new New York hardcore scene, cinematic soundscapes support the album's tone; the appropriately dark or melancholy, shifting moods layer like different scenes in a film. 17 tracks. Altered Ego.

"There have been a few great Wu Tang solo albums but none of them got the drop on OB4CL. This is unquestionably one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time. And what makes it so unique is the street slang that is distinctively created by Raekwon and Ghostface, making them one of the most potent duos in the hip hop game. They go together like peanut butter and chocolate.
This album boasts no less than 8 bangers in my opinion (in no particular order)
Can It Be All So Simple (remix)
Glaciers of Ice
The rest of the album is so solid too you will find it difficult to skip a track, of which there is 18 to tickle your eardrums.

Only Built for Cuban Linx II is supposedly coming out later this year, 14 years after its predecessor. If its half as good it will be the 2009 hip hop album of the year."
