Complete your Chef Raekwon collection. This album sounds flawless. Newbury typically does a good job but this is exceptional.
Cuban Linx's portraits of big-money drug deals and black underworld kingpins living in luxury had an enormous influence on the new New York hardcore scene, especially Mobb Deep and Nas, the latter of whom appears here on the much-revered duet "Verbal Intercourse. The fellow Clan members who show up as guests are recast under gangster aliases, and Ghostface Killah makes himself an indispensable foil, appearing on the vast majority of the tracks and enjoying his first truly extensive exposure on record.
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is stacked with little stories like this, more an anthology than a record with a master narrative, though RZA would tell you otherwise. His inspiration for the album came from The Killer, the John Woo film in which an assassin and a police detective team up (dialogue from that film and Scarface (which was partly where that began) is sampled throughout the album). RZA has said that the narrative of Cuban Linx follows a similar path, as two characters from rival neighborhoods team up to pull off one last job before leaving the criminal life forever. But Rae and Ghost only halfway engaged in that narrative, which makes RZA’s enduring contribution not his concepts (which could be dicey!), but his ability to bring like-minds together over the most finely tuned collection of beats he ever provided for a single.
