Raekwon - "House of Flying Daggers" feat. Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah & Method Man [Update: Full Version]

For those of you not familiar with classic Wu-Tang, Raekwon's 1995 solo debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... is a classic East Coast Mafioso rap album (perhaps only surpassed by Jay's Reasonable Doubt as far as Mafioso albums are concerned).  As was a common theme with many of the early "solo" Wu releases, the album heavily features guest appearances from other Wu members/affiliates and the gritty, ominous production of RZA-circa the early 90s.  Just like nearly every first round Wu album, it's simply a classic with a dearth of songs from "Incarcerated Scarfaces" to "Knowledge God" to the classic Wu collaboration "Wu-Gambinos" (I call my brotha sun 'cause he shine like one).

Hip hop heads worldwide have been eagerly anticipating the sequel to this album, OB4CLII, since it was announced back in '05.  The oft-delayed project has frustrated Wu-Stans as label issues with Dr. Dre's Aftermath put the album in danger of never seeing the light of day.  Luckily for us, after the nearly eternal wait, OB4CLII will be dropping September 8th (next month is going to be amazing for hip hop between this, The Blueprint 3, M.O.P.'s The Foundation, new Brother Ali, Bone Thugs, and Kid Cudi). The album is hyped as bringing back the old gritty, raw Wu sound that I love so much as showcased by this track (download below).  September 8th is quickly approaching people.  Get Hyped!
