i'm tired of people complaining that this one is not cuban linx, but you should know that there's no other cuban linx. that album can't be recreated. then, most people forget that cuban linx is an album by raekwon and not the rza. RZA composed some of the best beats hip hop will ever see for the album, but the main work is done by raekwon. who wrote the lyrics? who rhymed on the beats? if it wasn't for raekwon, there would be no cuban linx
then, people ask why there's no rza on this album. rza is the one producer that can't be replaced, but he can;t do everything. there are some other excellent good producers and beat makers. it worked with deck's album, and i think it worked with this one too. people have a tendency to not listen to wu songs that dont say "produced by the rza". the lyrics and rhymes on this one are blazing, raekwon style. raekwon is the same. he hasn't changed for the worse. so people, you buy the albums for rza or raekwon?
i listen to the album all the time, and people criticize the wu too much cause the dont live up to the original albums, but dont forget that those cds are unique and cant be replaced. any album with the "WU-TANG" seal of quality is guaranteed to be better than 95 percent of the stuff you see on the shelves
if you really noe the wu you will get this one, because the production is accurate and complete, the lyrics are masterfully laid over the tracks and its the raekwon we all know. not for commercial people who look for beats like dmx or cashmoney
