The way some of these tracks sound, I would not be surprised if Only Built for Cuban Linx 2 did the impossible- back to back classic albums from one artist. Nearly 15 years after OB4CL’s release, in the age of mixtapes and YouTube, a guy from the days of old was able to keep himself relevant with a bunch of young people my age (21) and younger.

After listening to the Wu-Tang Clan quite a bit during my formative years, Raekwon became my favorite member of the Wu after the opening track of OB4CL, but even as a Rae stan, I never thought he’d have the longevity we all thought Method Man would have, or Ghostface has shown to have.

As far as Only Built for Cuban Linx 2 is concerned, there is apparently an April 7 release date pinned as of now (don’t count on that), and a video has been shot for what is probably the album’s first single, “Wu Ohh”…

The second track thought to be on the album, with good reason, is “Criminology Part 2.” If the name’s not a big enough clue…

And on top of all that, Rae has a mixtape due out in the next few weeks, titled Blood on the Chef’s Apron. Never one to leave us hangin’, Raekwon broke us off with a preview.

You know what, we may really see OB4CL2 in the next few months after all.
