The wait(s) is over! In the last 2 days, the hip-hop world has been overwhelmingly preoccupied with leaked versions of the year's most anticipated albums, Jay-Z's The Blueprint 3 (which leaked Monday) and Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. II (which leaked Tuesday). Both are sequels to undisputed NYC rap classics, and both hit retail stores next week. Naturally, the argument is on: which sequel album is better? Listen to samples from each below (you'll have to find your own leak downloads...it's not very hard), then vote for which album you think reigns supreme. The winning LP will be featured as Complex's Album of The Week next Tuesday, so choose wisely!
Jay-Z "Thank You" (Produced by Kanye West & No I.D.)
