Only Built 4 Cuban Linx was classic--a blessing and a curse. In 2009, Raekwon released Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Pt. 2, which was almost equal to its predecessor...but not quite. (Still, I loved Rae's sequel.)

"Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang" picks up where Raekwon left off (even though he never did). Most tracks feature a nu-classic Wu sound, and more importantly, Rae brings his trademark swagger. (Like Method Man, the Chef makes rhyming seem so easy.) The beats are anything but mainstream and the lyrics require a sharp ear. The guests (especially Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and Nas) are also on point.

The standouts include "Every Soldier in the Hood," "Chop Chop Ninja," "Butter Knives," "Snake Pond," "Crane Style," "Rich and Black," "From the Hills"--you know what?! Forget the so-called "standouts." EVERY track on this joint is amazing. So much in fact, that this album rivals Rae's previous Cuban Linx entries.

It's hard to find fault with "Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang." The lyrics are smooth and the beats are anything but. This is classic Wu ----.

Wu-Tang forever.

Peace.

Very solid album. The Chef shows that he still as sharp as ever and comes correctly on every track. The best tracks are Butter Knives (maybe the best Raekwon song in years), Rich & Black (could've been on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. II, but the Nas reused verse does not touch the Chef here), The Scroll (super-superb beat with a very sick and ill flow), Snake Pound (dope vendetta track), Silver Rings (Classic R.A.G.U. with a Wu-Tang's Triumph and As High As Wu-Tang Get sample. Raekwon reveals that Cuban Linx Pt. III is comming), Masters of Our Fate (A Raekwon and Black Thought colaboration, with an epic beat and verses from both of them. It even has a Winston Churchill sample), Dart School (Flyest track on the album with some We People Who' Are Darker Than Blue sample on it) and the title track Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang (this opening banger is a perfect example of how to set the mood of a whole album. Rae comes hungry here with some very skilled rhyme scheme).

The rest of the album still very good. I don't think this is better than Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. II. It's different, but just as dope too. The standout tracks above makes this worthwhile. This is a must buy. Buy it.

4-4.5 stars.

The Chef returns with his, we'll call it, 5th major label solo album, just 18 months since his last solo (shortest period of time he's has in between solo projects). This is the 24th CD that I have that Rae has been a part of (his solo's, mixtapes, group albums as part of: Wu-Tang Clan, Ice Water, Wu-Massacre, , and American Cream Team, albums/mixtapes he's done with Ghostface Killah, and a good deal of Wu-Tang compilations that he was a part of). So there is no denying his veteran status in the rap game, as he's been putting out albums for 18 years now. And this is further proof that there's good reason he's been doing it so long and consistent. This is yet another 4.5 star effort and rates up there with the majority of his other solo's/mixtapes. Here is my breakdown of the solo projects I have that he's put out (I won't go through every album I own that he is part of, just the solo's.

"Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..." -- 8/95) -- 4.5/5 stars
"Immobilarity" --- (11/99) -- 5/4.5 stars
"The Lex Diamond Story" -- (12/03) -- 4 stars
"The DaVinci Code: Vatican Mixtape Vol. 2" -- (7/06) -- 4.5 stars (mixtape)
"Only Built 4 The Streets, Pt. 2" -- (7/08) -- 4/4.5 stars (mixtape)
"Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...Pt. 2" -- (9/09) -- 4.5/4 stars

This one has 16 songs, 2 are near classics and the other 14 are good or real good songs. None are worth skipping over and it's easy to listen through the album from start to finish with no disappointments. Guests are a little heavy, on 10 of the 16 tracks, and rapping on each one.

Back in 1999, Raekwon fans patiently waited for a follow up to the classic "Only Built For Cuban Linx". What they got was the highly disappointing "Immobilarity". It was a different direction that fans were not ready for. Raekwon's status dropped. Plus the fact that other Wu-Tang members like Meth, Ghost & ODB were stealing the spotlight. It took 10 years before Rae was able to reclaim his status as an elite hip hop artist with the sequel to "...Cuban Linx". But once again we are skeptical again with Rae's ability to follow up a classic. Can he keep the fire burning he started with "OB4CL2"? Or will his flame burn out again? "Shaolin Vs Wu-Tang" tries to answer those questions.

As with "Immobilarity", Raekwon announced that the RZA would not be handling any tracks on "Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang". Fans held their breaths. But from the beginning you know this is going to take you back to the old Wu-Tang style. The first thing you hear is a Wu-Tang movie clip then Raekwon hits you with the banging title track. Method Man sounds motivated on "Every Soldier In The Hood". Rae's old friend NaS returns for "Rich & Black".The album loses a little focus in the middle with songs like "From The Hills" & "Last Trip To Scotland". And "Chop Chop Ninja" is horrible. But Rae bounces back with "Ferryboat Killaz" another track that's way too short.(It seems all of the bangers are way too short)

One of the first things I noticed was how the collection of producers on the album did a good job of re-creating the Wu-Tang sound. Bronze Nazareth produced the standout "Butter Knives", which sounds like it should have been on "Enter the Wu-Tang".(Some say he did a better job than RZA) Young producer Cilvaringz represents that new Wu sound on the good but way too short "Silver Rings" ft Ghostface.
