Today marks the 23rd anniversary of Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. A certified classic on all fronts, The Purple Tape was more than an album to some. Like Pusha T, who holds The Chef’s debut solo effort higher than most.

“I was trying to make The Purple Tape,” Pusha told Genius the night before he dropped Daytona on our heads. “I was trying to make my best rendition of a Pusha T Purple Tape, ever. For people that know me, know the purple tape is everything to me. I think me and ‘Ye did a damn good job.”

To help celebrate OB4CL‘s Jordan year, Pusha ventured out to the Stapleton Houses on Staten Island to discuss his love for the album and how it helped shape Daytona.
