Raekwon's debut solo album, and the third of the many brilliant Wu-Tang solo offerings which began to emerge in the mid 1990s. But like many of the Wu-Tang solo albums, it isn't truly a solo album, as it features Ghostface Killah prominently, and was entirely produced by Wu-Tang puppet master RZA, who, after reading his Wu-Tang Manual, has convinced me that he is some kind of utterly mad genius who has a twenty year plan to take over the world or something. However, Raekwon is still able to step out of the Wu-Tang limelight and craft an individual album that focuses on the mafia rather than kung-fu, and one which is simply astounding. Enjoy.
