Raekwon - "Knuckleheadz" X "Wu-Gambinos"

I'm an equal opportunity offender here at Hip Hop 101 and with two legends releasing albums on the same day tomorrow, you knew I wasn't going to leave you tonight with a look back at two classic Raekwon songs.  Both come off of his seminal Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..., a classic that, along with (ironically) Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt, set the standard for mid-90's East Coast Mafioso rap.  "Knuckleheadz" is the first track after the intro and sets the tone for the rest of the album while "Wu-Gambinos" is one of the classic Wu collaborations with verses by Method Man, Raekwon, RZA, Masta Killa, and Ghostface respectively.  Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. II drops tomorrow.

Wu roll together as one,
I call my brother son (sun) 'cuz he shine like one.

Peace, Love, & Wu,
Ghostface Noah
