Labeled as one of the greatest classics in Hip Hop Raekwon the Chef’s solo effort “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…” still sounds as fresh as in 1995. Witty wordplay and grimy beats were all a true Hip Hop fan could ask for. Thanks to dirt_dog of Philaflava the music world can now rejoice as a digitized version of Rae’s promotional cassette hits the internet. Here’s detailed information on this special treat.
I had mentioned in the forum a few days ago that I stumbled across a box of old tapes in my basement. Some mixtapes, some promo samplers, some custom tapes from the days of trading. After posting a short list, it looks like the people have spoken and they want to hear just about all of them. So first up is Raekwon’s 1995 promo cassette sampler for the upcoming release of “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.” Nothing mind blowing here, but an exclusive freestyle and (at the time) an advance opportunity to hear a couple album cuts. NOTE: all scans are included in the .rar file as well as a full scan of the sleeve.
