Well this is definitely a good pick up. rae goes real hard, he shines. GO OUT AND SUPPORT HIP HOP
"Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...Part 2" is another classic (albeit with a more polished, '09 feel). Raekwon, along with his Clansmen, step up and deliver street anthem after bloody street anthem. Each track is mad "niggerish" (as Charley Murphy would say).
"Return of the North Star" welcomes the listener back into Chef's Cuban Linx world. (Play both albums back-to-back.) "House of Flying Daggers" is a pure Wu-Banger. "New Wu," which most of us heard online, represents the Wu in the same vein as "Triumph" (or even "Careful (Click, Click)"). "Surgical Gloves," "Pyrex Vision," "Penitentiary," and "Baggin' Crack" are perhaps my favorite tracks. (Raekwon can spin a story, son.) "Ason Jones" is a wonderful tribute to Big Baby Jesus. "We Will Rob You" and "10 Bricks" are some of the best displays of witty, unpredictable talent and natural game in recent years. Ghostface Killah slays the competition on these tracks. And likewise, Method Man comes correct (and as grimy) as usual.
Some of the aforementioned tracks are short (2 to 3 minutes or so). But the album clocks out at 1:10:52...so really, we get plenty of street knowledge.
All in all, this album is a fitting sequel to one of the best albums we've ever heard. Raekwon (and his posse) give us another standard in hip-hop lyricism and production. (Thank God RZA produced several key tracks on this beast.)
I keep telling people: Raekwon never fell off! Hopefully...while all the shark biters are waiting...these Cats will smash the world again.
I don't know what else ta tell you. It's a must have for any Wu-Tang Clan fan out there.
This is one that you can play from start to finish and not feel too tempted to skip tracks. Definitely lives up to Linx Pt. 1, which says a lot.
I was nervous that the years this album spent in development hell implied it would be a stinker, but happily, I couldn't have been more wrong. It's still too soon to say whether it lives up to the original, but so far, it's hard to be disappointed with what we're hearing. Rae and Ghost are like two sides of the same coin while other guest appearances add polish without stealing the limelight from the author. Cop it now, because this is hip hop at its best--there's no excuse for complaining that the golden age of rap is over when giants still stand in our midst!
