Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary (!!) of Raekwon‘s classic solo debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. To celebrate, the Wu-Tang member made his media rounds talking about the album and sharing stories of its creation.
During a Tidal “Check In” with Elliott Wilson, the Chef capped off their conversation by dropping a bomb and announcing that his next album would indeed be another installment of the Cuban Linx series.
“It’s time we close that trilogy out. Cuban Linx 3, baby!” Raekwon exclaimed. “The trilogy! It’s over after that.”
Now, usually when artists reach back in their classic debut bag and try to recreate the magic, it never really pans out. Not Raekwon, though. In 2009, he came through with a sequel (OB4CL2) and it was fantastic.
