Raekwon is celebrating the quarter-century turn of his iconic 1995 debut solo studio album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… by introducing an exclusive vinyl reissue of the instrumentals championed by Wu-Tang Clan founding member RZA. The project will premiere through a partnership with Certified Classics and Get On Down.

The latest iteration of Cuban Linx is pressed on two purple-in-clear splatter vinyls. A reverse-board, silver-inked jacket with die-cut printing houses the artwork featuring both Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. Pre-orders are currently ongoing but expect a wait to get your hands on the collector’s item, as shipments start late-September 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic causing delays.

Earlier this year, Raekwon debuted his new The Appetition EP through a partnership with Red Bull Music. He released his last official full-length album The Wild back in 2017 but he’s kept busy through other Wu-Tang Clan endeavors like Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga and Showtime’s Of Mics and Men. The collective premiered a seven-track EP to coincide with the documentary.

Pre-orders for the instrumental version of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… are currently available here. Check out the tracklist and stream Raekwon’s classic album below.
