Raekwon, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... (1995)

Label: Loud/RCA/BMG

Roc Marciano: “That’s New York culture at its finest. That’s drug dealer rap from the big homies. That’s not coming from the snot-nosed dudes. That’s that shit from dudes that were old enough to get into those clubs, and things of that nature that I couldn’t get in to. Cuban Linx, that sounded like our big brothers rapping. That’s that fire right there. That lit that torch to keep that shit pushing. Like, ‘Let’s keep this east coast gangster shit pushing.’”
