Raekwon-Only Built 4 Cuban Linx pt.2 (2009)

Ok this review is comming very late, seeing as how it was released in September, But fuck it I'ma do it anyway.
Right away pt.2 also starring Ghostface, grabs you by the cover. The pose by Raekwon and Ghost is from the pt.1 offering, and this cover lets you know that just like the first time arround the Chef and Tony cooked up some marvelous joints. The opening "House of Flying Daggers" is a beautiful return to all that is Wu-Tang and setting the bar of the album very high. The following cuts while not as strong as "House..." all stand on their own as great crack rap evidenced especially by the third cut "Sonny's Missin". The production of the album is damn near flawless with Dr. Dre, Mathmatics, and Pete Rock, and the beat from Dilla on the very strong tribute to O.D.B."Ason Jones" will have have all rap heads pumpin a fist for the lost ones.
All in all this album is the best thing Raekwon has done since his first solo project, and at 22 Songs, you feel like there shouold be 10 more....Maybe pt.3 is just arround the corner.
