1995 was a HOT year in hip hop music, and this album shows why. With Wu-Tang still in their primes and dominating the scene, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah hooked up to drop one of my favorite albums of all time, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. This album is EXCELLENT, from start to finish. This is the Wu-Tang at it's finest, and no other album (solo that is) will EVER take this as far as Wu-Tang solos go. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: The entire album. There's NO fast forward material here.
Production: Thumbs up. Quite possibly the BEST production The Rza has been responsible for.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up.
Originality: Thumbs up. No other MCs had "guest starring" in their albums before this one.
The Last Word: Hip hop today would be SO much better if albums like this were released. It's too bad that hip hop right now is being dominated by such wackness (Lil Jon, Chingy, etc). But Raekwon and Ghostface dropped a GEM on hip hop that will always be remembered. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this album to you, die hard Wu fans or not. You MUST own this. A TRUE masterpiece.
