This like a 4.9/5, and only because I don't know if the album will be good enough 10 years down the line. Otherwise it has all the makings of a classic, and I don't like to use that word alot, but here I think it deserves to be used.

This should be considered a modern day classic in comparison to all that s**t that's been catching buzz lately. It's nice to see some vets shakin up the game a little.

i give it a 4. There were some tracks I didn't like, but it is overall a very good album.

I wasn't feeling:
Broken Safety
Fat Lady Sings
Have Mercy
Mean streets

But the other s**t I was feeling like "Sonny's missing", "Black Mozart", "Surgical Gloves", "Kiss The Ring" (YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH n*gga!), "House Of Flying Daggers", "New Wu", "penitentiary", "gihad", "Gihad" . Even with 5 songs I wasn't feeling the other good s**t was so good that I can easily give this a 4 or even 4.5

My only problem is that I feel this suffered from what the original OB4CL did, the features (mainly Ghost and Deck) went harder than Raekwon O_O

Other than that, very solid Album. Much better than Blueprint 3 and Relapse. This will be getting heavy rotation without a doubt.

can someone explain to me the CD if you have listened to all of it?

is this a continuation from OB4CL?

what i get from this is Raekwon tells the story of a low to mid level drug dealer (he cooks his own crack and slangs his own s**t) and his crew (the role that the rest of the Clan plays)... and he's got hommies locked up... and on "Penitentary" they talk about hitting someone from prison... and im not sure what happens after that...

and on surgical gloves he gets more ruthless... on Canal Street I think he holds down his spot... On Ason Jones, he talks about ODB who he lost (he doesnt say how he lost ODB, but u can a.ssume he was the main character's partner).... and on "Have Mercy" it talks about I think another character of Rae's crew who's locked up, but in this case, he's not in the same position as the characters in "Penitentary"... he's dying in the cell, he misses his freedom. In that song Rae talks about him being on the outside, and hustling to try to make it big and ending up back in jail.

I dont really know what happens in the rest of the album. I think its an unfinished story.

Alc blacked out on surgical gloves for real. This s**t is classic in the making. Of course it didn't give me the same feeling as the first one 14 years ago but how could it? That was a different time-period for hip-hop and music overall. A very very very very good album and time will tell if its great and whether or not I play this years from now.

I played the damn purple tape every damn day for almost 2 years in HS.

And for you cats comparing Jay and Rae. Apples and Oranges fellas. They make different music and always have. I listen to each for different reasons. Why a person can't be a fan of both I don't understand.

Album is sick. Definitely represented for all of Wu. The best album from a Clan member in a decade! Jay should have took notes on how to deliver for fans.

4/5 right now. I don't give anything a 5 unless I can listen to every song without wanting to skip and will play it 3-5 years from now. Too early to tell.

:applause:Couldn't have said it better. Right now the album is a 4.5 just because of the cohesiveness of the tracks. The first OBCL just had that good flow to it, all the songs seemed to come together. This album you can definitlely tell what the theme is, its just too many tracks( prob should be jus 15 to 16 solid cuts) But seeing how long it took us to be blessed with this album, we should be thankful for the 22 tracks.
