Here's my review:

With Raekwon dropping the follow-up to his 1995 classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... around the same time as Jay-Z releases the third installation of his Blueprint series, it seems appropriate to look at this album in the context of sequels. Starting with the cover being a re-creation of the original release's, Raekwon openly made the claim to be judged by the high standards he set himself with his debut. Highly awaited and heavily hyped, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt II was bound to dissapoint. To be quite frank: it does the opposite.

Defying even the expectations of most hardcore Wu-Tang fans, The Chef drops one of the best Hip Hop albums in recent years. He walks the thin line between copying his old sound and tearing it from its roots, and does what every sequel aims at doing: creating a successful re-enactment in a different context. Everything from the guest spots (mostly Wu-Tang members, but also other accomplished and well respected artists, such as Busta Rhymes, Beanie Sigel, Jadakiss and Styles P), to the production, from the subject matter to Raekwon's rapping style reminds the listener of the glorious mid-90's Wu-Tang Clan, while at the same time sounding crisp and new. Holding up the tension for 71 minutes and through 21 songs, Rae manages to get by without a single filler and maintains a clear leitmotif throughout. While not as groundbreaking in its nature as its predecessor, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt II will nonetheless also go down in rap history, as perhaps the most complete sequel album of all time.

You guys think Papa Wu's Vision= Raekwon will be at the Garden during the Jay Z 911 Concert?, would be a great look, let him and Ghost do Cold Outside, it would be soo epic.

After listening to this album at least 5 times in 2-3 days... I haven't heard a better album since "Below the Heavens" and "Phildelphia Freeway" ...and it might be better than them.

I honestly think the ODB tribute joint is my favorite..either that or Black Mozart..the beat to that one is just insane.

Quick Question... Does anyone not like "Penitentiary"? ...I still haven't seen anyone shout this track out... I think it's the grittiest joint too...
