Only Built 4 Cuban Linx

Only Built for Cuban Linx is an East Coast rap album by gangsta rapper Raekwon, released in 1995 (see 1995 in music). His first solo album, Raekwon, a member of the The Wu-Tang Clan, quickly established himself a reputation as one of the most critically praised members of the collective. Only Built for Cuban Linx is a solo album, but, like most Wu-Tang solo records, includes a great many collaborations, here especially with RZA and Ghostface Killah.
