Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx [The Samples]



I've been in a Cuban state of mind. And with the release of Rae's second OB4CL joint, I figured I'd retrace my footsteps and update the sample set for the original. The sample set for OB4CL was released in 2007 - the seventh set I compiled. In retrospect, I noticed that it was missing a lot of samples. I've made up for it by redesigning some iller cover art and, most importantly, boosting the tracklisting from 15 to 36. That's right... enter the 36 samples! I've included a bunch of film snippets from The Killer, Scarface, Shaolin vs. Lama, The Mack and Carlito's Way. I'm still searching for a few tracks' samples, and hopefully, one day, we'll get there. 'til then, enjoy this update and get ready for similar treatment for The Blueprint set, as well as a brand new archives release: The Purple Archives! Stay tuned...

    theres a couple that got missed though...
    "Labi Siffre - I Got The.." & some Millie Jackson joint (forgot which one) both sampled on the "Can It Be All So Simple (remix)"

    and i'm guessing still nobody knows what the strings sample is on "Knowledge God" ??
