Avis sur l’album

A serious contender for the title of best Wu-Tang solo album (rivaled only by the Genius' Liquid Swords), Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is also perhaps the most influential, thanks to Raekwon's cinematic imagination. If the Genius is the Wu's best overall lyricist, Raekwon is arguably their best storyteller, and here he translates the epic themes and narratives of a Mafia movie into a startlingly accomplished hip-hop album. Raekwon wasn't the first to make the connection between gangsta rap and the Cosa Nostra (Kool G Rap pioneered that idea), but he was the one who popularized the trend. Cuban Linx's portraits of big-money drug deals and black underworld kingpins living in luxury had an enormous influence on the new New York hardcore scene, especially Mobb Deep and Nas, the latter of whom appears here on the much-revered duet "Verbal Intercourse." The fellow Clan members who show up as guests are recast under gangster aliases, and Ghostface Killah makes himself an indispensable foil, appearing on the vast majority of the tracks and enjoying his first truly extensive exposure on record. Behind them, RZA contributes some of the strongest production work of his career, indulging his taste for cinematic soundscapes in support of the album's tone; his tracks are appropriately dark or melancholy, shifting moods like different scenes in a film. Cuban Linx's first-person narratives are filled with paranoia, ambition, excess, and betrayal, fast rises and faster falls. There are plenty of highlights along the way — the singles "Criminology" and "Ice Cream," the gentle "Rainy Dayz," the influential posse cut "Wu-Gambinos" — and everything culminates in "Heaven & Hell" and its longing for redemption. Like the Genius' Liquid Swords, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx takes a few listens to reveal the full scope of its lyrical complexities, but it's immensely rewarding in the end, and it stands as a landmark in the new breed of gangsta rap.

Chef d'oeuvre

Un must, un classique, pas la peine d'en rajouter, album légendaire, mythique, toute hip-hop head qui se respecte se doit de l'avoir dans sa collection. Nous avons ici le meilleur travaille de production de RZA. Les performances sont assurées par le duo Raekwon/Ghostface avec en featurings toute la famille du Wu plus un passage hip-hop quotable de Nas dans Verbal Intercouse. Mention spéciale à Knuckleheadz, Criminology, Incarcerated Scarfaces, Rainy Dayz, Guillotine, Glaciers of Ice, Verbal Intercouse, Spot Rusherz, Ice Cream (ah les femmes), Wu-Gambinos (vrai morceau de mafiosos...) et enfin le sublime Heaven & Hell.

Un classique !

Le meilleur parmi les solos du Wu !
A posseder avec : Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Tical de Method Man, Return To The 36 Chambers d'ODB, Liquid Swords de GZA et Ironman de Ghostface Killah

Rae "the chef"

Pour moi le meilleur album"solo" des membre du Wu Tang . Criminology est une BOMBE moi c'est ma préféré de l'album mais après tout les morceaux sont des chef d'oeuvre . Longue vie aux doubleH. il sera dure voir impossible de faire meilleur que les 90's en matière de lyrics.

Raekwon may not have achieved the solo stardom of his fellow Wu-Tang Clan mates Method Man or Ol' Dirty Bastard, but along with Genius/GZA and frequent partner Ghostface Killah, he's done some of the most inventive, critically acclaimed work outside the confines of the group. Born Corey Woods and also nicknamed the Chef (because he's "cookin' up some marvelous sh*t to get your mouth watering"), Raekwon joined the Staten Island, NY-based Wu-Tang collective in the early '90s and played an important...
