“I’m excited about this project. This is a true evolution from where we began. I’m also overwhelmed by the love and support that I’ve received. My long time friend and Hip Hop veteran, Diddy reached out to offer his support and agreed to host the event,”
said Raekwon in a statement. “All the artists involved, extended themselves for the release of my long awaited album because we all feel Hip Hop as a whole is in need of unifying. Magazines are closing; online storefronts are struggling because music sales are down. It’s time for Vets like myself to set the trend and strengthen the lane. Dinosaurs like myself are supposed to create the blue print for the new breed to follow.”

Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. 2 will be released on September 8 on Raekwon’s Ice H2O Record Label.
