Label: Loud

Raekwon's debut album had the best nickname for any album ever (The Purple Tape, in case you're a knucklehead) but the regular title held it's own significance. The title's was best explained by the album's co-star, Ghostface Killah, when he said, "The chain we used to rock back in the days was Cuban links. Rae came up with the theory, like a Cuban link is one of the roughest chains to break. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...real niggas, strong niggas." Word.
