So this could be the second or third resurgence of one of hip-hop's sharpest sets. People really began counting them out after the tension surrounding 8 Diagrams and its lukewarm reception.
It has to be said that the RZA must have some thick skin considering that a few months ago Ghostface and Raekwon were calling him out for his questionable production choices on the latest Wu-Tang and now he is back producing the bulk of Rae's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II and held the boards for the latest leak from Blackout 2, "4 Minutes to Lockdown" featuring Rae & Ghost. At the end of the day, these boys are family.
'Nuff talk. Shut up and rap.
This joint is set to be on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, dropping (according to Rae) on August 11, 2009. The song features Method Man and Ghostface Killah. The RZA and the GZA, along with some other Clan members and various associated acts, have guest spots in the video.
