Beats by RZA are sharp like a razor.
A. Sidletsky
This has gotten "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" accredited as the best solo Wu-Tang album and is nearly the equal of "36 Chambers".
AG
This album is one of the best albums I have EVER listened to.

I have every Wu-Tang cd there is and I've been a fan since the start of the WU. I have to say that Rae's album is the greatest album in history. I bought that album when it first came out, which was around four years ago, and every time I listen to it, it still feels like the beginning. Most cd's I buy, I get sick of in a few weeks or even days. However, this album is so perfectly balanced and groundbreaking that I get chills everytime I listen to it. When I listen to it, it just boggles my mind. This is the album that started the entire "Mafia/money-making" craze that has taken over the rap world, but Rae's the only one who did it right. He brought originality and creativity to it, and he did it his own way. When I see other rap stars pretending to be mobsters, they're just followers of the original, Raekwon. Only Built For Cuban Linx...- THE BEST ALBUM EVER

1995 was a one of the greatest years in the history of hip hop. The underground circuit was strong and future stars were on the rise. The Wu-Tang had a world-wide appeal that was almost contagious. With several street bangers already in place who knew that a quit member that goes by the name "The Chef" would drop an album that would prove to be timeless. Raekwon's "Only Built For Cubn Linx" is not only the best Wu-Tang album created but one of the best Hip Hop albums of all time. How many CD's can you play all the way throught and be totally entertained as well as educated. Hell, even the skits were dope! Standout tracks such as "Rainy Days", "Incarcerated Scarfaces", "Wu Gambino's", "Ice-Cream" and "Knowledge God" all represent classic Wu-Tang music......But on "Verbal Intercourse"..Nas drops one of hip hops hottest verses followed by an equally hungry Raekwon. The album is pretty much flawless and the outro is one of the best I've heard. Titled "North Star"..an old school cat from the neighborhood talks about the good times and watching a young Rawkwon grow up to be one of hip hop's finest. Believe me people, "Only Built For Cuban Linx" should have gotten a perfect rating in every hip hop magazine. Shame on the source for giving this album 4.5 mics and then seven years later say they made a mistake! Don't make the same error....go cop it"

If you don't have this album in your collection, seriously, either you don't like hip-hop or there's something wrong with you. This is a timeless classic.
I'm not even going to begin to describe why every track is dope, cuz I'd literally be here all night. Incarcerated Scarfaces, Glaciers Of Ice, Ice Cream, Wu Gambinos, Heaven & Hell, etc...they're ALL classics. But if I had to choose two favorite tracks off of here (I could never choose just one), they'd be Rainy Dayz and Verbal Intercourse.
Rainy Dayz is so smooth it'll give you chills....I remember the first time I heard this track, I played it over and over again, and just like the whole album, it never gets tiring or old.
Verbal Intercourse lets us hear with our own ears the transformation of Nasty Nas to Nas Escobar, and Esco fails to dissappoint. Everything about this track is beyond classic--the unbelievable beat and the flawless flows of Nas, Rae, & Ghost combine to make this one of my personal favorite tracks of all time.
Now enough reading this review, BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW!

After the Wu Tang Clan's debut CD, they had taken the rap world by storm. Classics such as "Protect Ya Neck", "C.R.E.A.M", "Can It Be All So Simple" and "Method Man" was fresh in everyone's minds. The Wu Tang Clan had stated from the beginning they were trying to make the success of their debut CD beneficial to other Wu Tang members so that they would be able to get solo contracts for each artist as well. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which two Wu Tang artists stood out the most, Method Man and ODB. However, when both of their solo CDs came out there was something missing. Both CDs sounded like they were rushed, especially Method Man's. They both had good singles and their were some other classic songs as well, but you didn't get that on the whole CD like you did on Wu Tang's debut. The next one up to bat was Raekwon, which surprised me at first, because I would have figured GZA would have been released as the 3rd solo CD. The first time I heard Raekwon rap without being featured with a Wu Tang artist was on Mobb Deep's "Eye For An Eye" on Mobb Deep's "The Infamous" CD. His lyrics were razor sharp as usual but I did not think that Raekwon could carry a whole CD. Enter, Ghostface Killah. The Wu Tang Clan probably figured it was easy for Method Man and ODB, but they knew that only die hard Wu Tang fans would know about Raekwon. I'm sure that the pressure was on the Wu Tang Clan to make sure that they did not disappoint their fans. With Raekwon and Ghosface Killah on the mic and the RZA on the boards, they figured it wouldn't be a problem. The first single, "Glaciers Of Ice", demonstrated that. The track featured Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and Wu- affiliate Masta Killa.Read more ›
