Select Gender? Once an artist has dropped a classic album, they are held up to the unfair expectations to do so again with each release in the future. Anything short causes rampant hating, talks of falling off, selling out, and other releated activities. Raekwon is one of the artists who fell victim to some of the this unfair criticism.

Raekwon released Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Much of the content on the album deals with real life topics and situations that both Raekwon and Ghostface Killah commonly encountered and experienced while growing up in Staten Island , New York. We did the hustlin' thing, we did the crime thing; we did all the things that made us feel like mobsters or Mafiosos in some way.
We were banned from everything. They wouldn't even let me in the Tunnel. Niggas was scared to death when I was out there wilding. I was fucking niggas up, robbing niggas, fucking a lot of bitches, just doing dumb shit. In regard to his and Ghostface's partnership, Raekwon later commented "Ghost and me, especially at the time, had this identical-twin effect on each other. We would joke about the same things and laugh at the same shit.
We were into the same clothes and shit. We were like the EPMD of the crew. Rae and Ghost together, those two right there were notorious kids from two different projects.
Cuban Linx was an opportunity for Rae and Ghost to give us the street side. When we did it, I said, "yo, it's gonna be a very dangerous album; it's gonna change the game. We gonna invite those demons, every negative stereotype, and deal with them. It's so natural, it don't feel like songs.

We didn't call each other to work. We called each other to hang out. Somehow we wound up in the studio. RZA had a couple of beats.
He played them for me. I got on both of them. The other one never came out. I was honored to be asked to be on the album. Raekwon was ahead of his time. I knew Rae was a classic artist and the album was going to be a music classic. The album's title serves as "a warning of its musical potency to those not prepared for the uncut raw contained within. The chain we used to rock back in the days was Cuban links.
So Rae came up with the theory, like a Cuban link is one of the roughest chains to break. Real niggas, strong niggas. The album is also commonly referred to as " The Purple Tape " because the original cassette's plastic was entirely purple; Raekwon marked the tape distinctively as a reference to drug dealers' method of tagging their product, to distinguish it from that of others'.
