Raekwon - "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Part II"

I have been waiting for this album to come out for the past 3-4 years and finally it hits the shelves and a disappointment. I honestly have not really had the desire to listen to the whole album all the way through, but I think it could've been a smash had Rae included some songs and edited a few others out. Also if Nas showed up on the album it would've been crazy.

Things that were missing: Wu Gambinos part 2 and Nas.

Songs that should've been included:

Blue Eagles


Baggage Handlers

The Masters (Rest in peace) ft. B-Real of Cypress Hill

Beauty (ft. Noreaga & Joell Ortiz)

Whips & Kicks (Ft. AZ)

Cocaine Blunts

Songs to keep (there are a few bangers on this album):

- Return of the North Star (ft. Papa Wu)
** an amazing intro track to the album **

- House of Flying Daggers (ft. Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, GZA)
- Cold Outside (ft. Ghostface Killah)
- Gihad (ft. Ghostface Killah)
- New Wu (ft. Ghostface Killah, Method Man)
- Ason Jones (ODB tribute)

- The Badlands (ft. Ghostface Killah) - European Bonus Track
- Walk Wit Me - iTunes Bonus Track

The rest of it was disposable. These tracks were going up against:
- Striving for Perfection
- Criminology
- Incarcerated Scarfaces
- Can It Be All So Simple
- Glaciers of Ice
- Verbal Intercourse
- Ice Cream
- Wu-Gambinos
- Heaven and Hell

and all the other tracks on this album straight ILL... not a single wack track.
