Final Cut Of Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 Surfaces

Wu insiders show the media the 24 tracks that the label and A&Rs are pulling from, Dr. Dre included, Erick Sermon not.

After being under lock and key, the UK's Hip Hop Chronicle claims to be the first to have heard Raekwon's [click to read] long-awaited sequel to his 1995 debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Reportedly due in September on EMI Records, the album finds the Staten Island veteran emcee returning to his roots of cocaine-inspired raps and grimy production, with referential production and appearances.

Per the review [click here], which has been confirmed and endorsed by Wu-Tang's Killer Beez Promotions, the album, as it stands now, includes production from Dr. Dre, J Dilla, RZA [click to read], Pete Rock and Marley Marl. Features include GZA, Inspectah Deck, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Cappadonna, Masta Killa - as well as Beanie Sigel, Styles P [click to read], Jadakiss, Busta Rhymes and Slick Rick.

Notably absent is Erick Sermon, a promised producer of the project, who's worked with Wu-Tang emcees throughout the last 15 years. Also absent is Nas, who Raekwon publicly pleaded to appear on the project, in tribute to their 1995 collaboration and early '90s lyrical rivalry.

Reports indicate that the 24 tracks will likely be shortened to fit an album.
