Haven't checked this out yet, but will soon though.

Masta Killa is one of my favorite MCs.

Woah? I always thought he was one of the weakest MC's in the Wu.

I really can't deny your comment but ...

his two solo releases (no said date & made in brooklyn) have this real genuine feel to them that I appreciate.  They're raw and it's just him mc'ing.  Some of the tracks feel like he just went the booth, spit his best, and put it on the record.   

plus, from my understanding, he doesn't do all the lame ass drama that the other members do.  like joell oritz he doesn't speak on drama and stays on the low letting the music speak for itself

Damn, I haven't heard shit like this in a looong time. On track 13 right now and everything has been hard (only complaint so far is that the Alchemist track doesn't have a Cuban Linx feeling-dope track, though).

After three listen, the ONLY track I'm not feeling is Surgical Gloves. Everything else is either nice or vintage Raekwon. Very dope album, gonna burn it, bump it in the ride  and see if it stands for at least 2 weeks

Here's a couple more: no U-God, and no verse from RZA (except for his Black Mozart outro). U-God and RZA had classic verses on the first album. Also, I was looking forward to hearing "Rockstars And Smoking Barrells" (but it got cut, due to sample clearence issues I think). These minor complaints don't bring the album down, though. I'll def. be playing this for many years to come. "Kiss The Ring" (what a great way to end the album, fck'n classic). Raekwon did it.

Definitely one of the best releases this year. Beats are very good and Raekwon kills the verses.

He's just a story teller so if you can view it like that it's easier to listen.

I've been bumping the original Cuban Linx album in anticipation of this. Man I'm gonna wait to cop it, I haven't even heard the snippets yet. I'm curious about the RZA and Dre joints especially.

What kinda vibe is 'About Me' on?

As I always say, if you like this, then buy it. 

I cheated and listened to a few snippets a week or so ago just cuz i was curious as fuck.  But those were all I needed to reaffirm what I knew was gonna be a dope album.  I'll be coppin shortly.
