In 1995 Raekwon released his classic solo debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (The Purple Tape) guest starring Tony Starks (Ghost Face Killer). Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, a collection of Wu-Tang inspired mafioso tales highlighted Raekwon’s vivid storytelling ability and further cemented the Wu-Tang Clan as a group not to mess with. The Chef added jewels to his Cuban Linx with slept on joints such as Immobilarity, The Lex Diamond Story, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2, Shaolin vs Wu-Tang, FILA (Fly International Luxurious Art), and The Wild.
