Raekwon, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (1995)

Label: Loud/RCA/BMG

Pusha T: "Cuban Linx was the drug dealers’ bible. It eliminated a lot of gloss. It was way too real. All of Wu-Tang was really unorthodox, but Rae put everything in a street perspective so you could understand it. He incorporated the slangs, but it was fly. It was Polo, it was Snow Beach. It was all of that shit—they were the epitome of it.

"They spoke the language musically, but at the same time, they embodied the whole culture of fly with the cars, the Infinitis. I don’t feel that they were the opposite of Mobb Deep. For that I would go with Hov."
