Rae's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is an early Wu-Tang solo classic, responsible for sequels and known for classic sampling from the RZA in primetime. This is one of the Wu's most intricately told stories, a record about drugs in New York told through some of the best hooks with some of the best singles.

Picture an album with no filler, fifteen songs with sharp lyrics, top shelf production, and an all-star lineup of guest appearances and you are left with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, an album that sent shockwaves through the East Coast rap scene and revolutionised the Mafioso subgenre. Raekwon the Chef (a.k.a Lou Diamonds) and his sidekick Tony Starks (Ghostface Killer) create an instant rap classic laden with clever motifs, symbols, and wordplay. The end result of their writings and ideas over RZA's sharp beats is music of such a high quality that it actually transcends the subject matter itself.
