Raekwon, With Ghostface, Proves He Was Really Only Built for Cuban Linx

Living larger than ever.

Yes, "Criminology 2" is a sequel to "Criminology," from Raekwon's classic 1995 debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..., and will appear on the long-awaited Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II. But is Rae doing it "‘09 style," as he claims? Well, the new track uses the same beat, same guest star (Ghostface Killah, naturally), and another sample from the same movie (Scarface, naturally). But, given the face-melting perfection of his debut — and the slipshod quality of much recent Wu Tang output — we believe the Chef is right to stick to the old recipes. So, please: Kick it old-school.
