First of all, pretent OB4CL never existed. With that in mind read on:
It's time for us to stop comparing Chef's work next to his all-time great Only Built 4 Cuban Linx cd and focus on the facts today. This is the most lyrically fit cd Rae has done. His maturity has increased over his previous work he has given us. I love some of the production on this album while some songs have mediocore production on the tracks. The only negative thing I have to say is that some of the skits were somewhat pointless but that's besides the point of the actual tracks. DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS ALBUM!!
Here's my ratings on each of the songs:
Pit Bull Fights: 5/5
King of Kings feat. Havoc: 4.5/5
Missing Watch feat. Ghostface Killah: 5/5
All Over Again: 4.5/5
Clientele Kidd feat. Fat Joe & Ghostface Killah: 5/5
Smith Bros.: 5/5
Robbery feat. Ice Water INC.: 5/5
PA-Blow Escablow: 5/5
Musketeers of Pig Alley feat. Masta Killa & Inspectah Deck: 5/5
Ice Cream 2 feat. Method Man & Cappadonna: 3.5/5
The Hood feat. Tiffany Villarreal: 4/5
Planet of the Apes feat. Capone & Sheek Louch: 5/5
Wyld in Da Club feat. Ultra & Ice Water: 4/5
Once Apon a Time feat. Tekitha: 5/5
Overall: 4.7/5
If you compare it to OB4CL (which you shouldn't) - 4/5

so the word was Raekwon the Chef fell off right? Immobilarity didn't work out as planned, and Rae was dethroned as one of the potential candidates for King of NY...if you're one of those heads with this opinion, don't worry; he's back! and if you've been feeling Diamonds throughout everything (as i have), you're gonna love how he takes it to another level! W/o RZA, and only two guest appearances, Raekwon has created a ruggedly, beautiful, aesthetic album that will catch many people off-guard. Not only is this a good wu album, it is a flat-out, LOVELY hip hop album! i'll take you through, track-by-track...(leaving out the skits...)
Pit Bull Fights-8/10
King of Kings-9/10 (wow...havoc and rae rip it)
Missing Watch-8.5/10 (ghost is hilarious as they narrate about a stolen watch over an old school beat)
All Over Again-8.5/10 (a somewhat somber, yet hopeful track..Rae reminiscing, at his best)
Clientele Kids-7/10
Smith Bros-9/10 (hilarious intro, wonderful track)
Pa-Blow Escablow 9.5/10 (whoooo!)
Muskateer of Pigs 9.5/10 (wu-banger..certified? of course)
Ice Cream 2 6.5/10 (if it wasnt called what it is, people wouldnt hate on it so much..its not bad...although cappa is kinda garbage on this)
Planet of the Apes 8.5/10
Wyld in the Club 6.5/10
Once Upon A Time 10/10 (perfection!)
dont hesitate...pick this up immediately!!

The album title begins the myopic vision, Raekwon telling the tales of a unknown fictional hustler and gangster named Lex Diamond. That doesn't automatically spell doom but I was suspicious that this LP was going to be a few notches below his Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album (I love that crazy album). Unfortunately, there was no RZA on any of the production (sample clearance problems) so Raekwon went a different route, beat wise. Raekwon says his fans wanted it like that but you don't expect mix tape flavor from Raekwon. According to him "This album right here is nothing but hard beats. I came a little bit more gritty because that's what my fans wanted. They want me on that street sh*t. But at the same time I'm a conscious MC so I kind of mashed all of these thoughts together amongst hard beats." I have to disagree, this is not what Raekwon fans want and you can't be too conscious of an MC when you have drug glorification issues throughout even if the drug glorification comes in the form of guest artist bragging about how much weight they dropped on the block and who they killed over it. It's hard for today's MC to actualize being hard and tough without equating it with selling drugs and the homicides that ensue. I think Rae wanted to copy the success of his first album but not do the same thing as his last. However, he makes the mistake of being be too different from either of his previous works. When you are the type of artist that he is, that has a fan base that require certain integral things, you have to stay focused. Rae can still flow but conceptually this is not a vintage Raekwon album. Rae is not known for being the hardest rapper he is known for being original and clever something that is only present on skits and intro's. Rae of the Wu-Tang Clan is a different person on this album.Read more ›

Cuban Linx was probably one of the best hip-hop albums of all-time with absolutely no fast forwarding whatsoever. Throw in Tony Starks in the mix, RZA's flawless production, a lil Capadonna, NAS, Goldenarms and it was beyond perfect. That was the problem straight from the beggining. Cuban Linx was so good that every Raekwon album released afterwards (Immobilarity in 99) has come up extremely short of Cuban Linx. This is unfortunate for Raekwon that his CD's have become the reflection of the Wu demise. The only Wu member who can still shine the Wu's light is Ghostface however, with ODB now part of Rocafella, Meth rollin w/ Redman and the other Wu member's MIA (Missing In Action) aside from GZA who's release in Jan was average and no where near Liquid Swords level.
This is not to say that The Chef's lyrics have fallen off though he doesn't captivate us like he did on Cuban Linz with the mafioso stories and well painted pictures of life in Shaolin, but with RZA no longer on the boards, Ghost working on his next solo release and being we're all mafia'd, cristalled out and the Wu no longer on top, the Chef's cookin ain;t as tasty as it was when he first fed us.
