RZA and Raekwon will be performing the entirety of The Chef’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… with the Colorado Symphony this month.

The Wu-Tang Clan figureheads and orchestra will present Raekwon’s album at the Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver, Colorado on February 16 and February 17. “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… is a landmark hip-hop album released by rapper Raekwon who rose to prominence as a founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan. Produced by fellow Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA, this record is a cornerstone of East Coast hip-hop and a quintessential piece of the genre’s golden era, thanks in part to RZA’s extraordinary beats and the introduction of Raekwon and Ghostface Killah as a legendary rap duo,” the event announcement read.

“With its gritty storytelling, intricate lyricism, and cinematic production, Cuban Linx offers listeners a vivid glimpse into the street life of 1990s New York City. Together with the Colorado Symphony, this legendary duo will reimagine their timeless album that continues to inspire and shape the sound of contemporary hip-hop today,” it continued.

It remains to be seen whether Ghostface Killah, who was described as the album’s “guest star” and appeared in all but five of the album’s tracks, will be hitting the stage.
