Raekwon is set to drop the third and final installment of his revered album series with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 3.

Announced during his interview with Elliott Wilson, Raekwon confirmed that the upcoming release will be the closing act of the 25-year-long series. “It’s time we close that trilogy out. It’s time to close that trilogy. I was holding all night back to tell you that. Cuban Linx 3 baby, the trilogy. It’s over after that. It’s over,” he said.

The Wu-Tang Clan member recently celebrated the original album’s silver jubilee with an instrumental vinyl reissue. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is widely considered as one of the blueprints of mafioso rap and features guest appearances from Nas and the rest of Wu-Tang Clan except for the late ODB. Raekwon followed it up with the release of Pt. II in 2009.

Stay tuned for a release date.

Elsewhere in music, RTJ and Travis Barker reunited for a new collab entitled “Forever.”
