For me personally, it gets no better than this. Grimey as fuck, cinematic, gangster, accessible, dark, fresh, PERFECT. Something about Ghost and Rae together is just magic. This song is 'top 5' material for me. Through and through, time and time again I will put this record on and listen to it front to back with a smile on my face. Raekwon perfected the whole storytelling record for the rap game, and sure enough Jay Z, Nas, and Biggie all followed suit but never really captured what Raekwon and Ghostface did on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..

This song is only rivaled (in my eyes) by "Incarcerated Scarfaces." The chorus in that song is so good.

cuban linx is BY FAR my favorite rap album of all-time, and definitely in my top-five of any genre.

"criminology" is my favorite song from it. good choice, nate!

and with out a doubt guillotine swordz and verbel intercourse are the toughest songs on that album this is a hip-hop classic!!!
