OB4CL2 is an excellent project! Listed as a sequel to its instant-classic predecessor, this latest installment continues where CL1 left off. Appropriately guest starring GFK (Ghost Face Killah), the energy and chemistry between the duo is undeniable. Raekwon smartly looked to credible hardcore rap producers to help bring to life the street energy that the Cuban Linx theme embodies. Notable producers such as RZA, Marley Marl, Pete Rock and J Dilla add necessary ingredients to the Cuban Linx recipe. The only people missing from this project are ODB and Nas. However, his lineup is not saturated with guest appearances. Instead, Raekwon successfully manages to hold his own for over half of the album. His equally imaginative music video to "House of Flying Daggers" is a wonderful complement to the song.

Raekwon's sound takes listeners back to gritty Shaolin of the 1990s; however, the production does not sound like leftover beats from that era. Instead, it is a fresh, new take on NYC street life and drama. Raekwon tells terrific stories throughout, narrating a journey through New York's underbelly. There is no glitz and glamour here. This album features no hollywood name-dropping, european exotic car and exotic vacation destination references.

Raekwon's focus is clear and it is all about a genuine agenda to keep Hip Hop culture fresh, consistent and authentic. OB4CL2 demonstrates the Wu are not only still relevant to Hip-Hop, but they are also still necessary for properly representing the culture. Throw your W's up! Salute to Raekwon and the Wu family for a successful release!

If you have any interest in Hip-Hop, REAL CLASSIC 90's influenced Hip-Hop, then you have absolutely no excuse to pass on this album right here.

The long-awaited follow-up to the classic masterpiece 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx', Raekwon has gone back to the genre he created back in the 1995 (aka Mafioso Rap) and has created another instant classic in 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Pt. 2'.

As a 33-year old native New Yorker, I grew up listening to Raekwon, Nas, and other great story-tellers (aka rappers) of the mid-90's. To me, this new Raekwon album is a breath of fresh air for 2009.

If 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' is a 5-Star CLASSIC hip-hop album, 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Pt. 2' should easily be rated 4-1/2 Stars, an INSTANT CLASSIC as well. The only reason for 1/2-Star deduction is because rapper Nas couldn't join Raekwon for the follow-up to "Verbal Intercourse" (Nas was going through his divorce with Kelis, so his absence is understandable).

Regardless, if you're reading this you owe it to yourself to buy this album and support the original pioneer of Mafioso Rap, Raekwon (who inspired Jay-Z's 'Reasonable Doubt', and The Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Life After Death', among many others). If you've never heard the original Raekwon album 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx', I urge you to buy it and listen to it back-to-back with this new Raekwon album right here.

To Raekwon: I want to personally say THANK YOU for bringing back CLASSIC 90's style rap into 2009 for all hip-hop fans.

THIS ALBUM IS A MUST-BUY.

After several years (and delays) Raekwon the Chef (along with Tony Starks) releases his second masterpiece. "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" is still an amazing album. Like most classics in rap or hip-hop, Raekwon's fist joint ages like fine wine. If you haven't listened to said classic, check it out now.

"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.

Wu-Tang forever.

Peace.

This album sounds great. The cinematic production is consistent, dark and deep, and Raekwon raps better than ever. His rapping voice has gotten darker, closer to MF Doom. Several tracks feature Ghostface Killah, who has been the most vital Wu member lately. Standout tracks for me were "House of the Flying Daggers", ""Cold Outside", "Surgical Gloves","10 Bricks", and "Catalina". If Pt. 1 is a classic, this is a masterpiece!
