EDITORS’ NOTES

Wu-Tang workhorse Raekwon has kept impressively high standards over the past 20 years, turning low-key street epics into a cottage industry. Toning down the slick production of 2015’s Fly International Luxurious Art, The Wild returns to the gritty boom-bap of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx—variations on a theme that the rapper still manages to make vivid and fresh, from the tense “M&N” to the touching “Marvin,” a tribute to Marvin Gaye.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Where's Ghostface?

No Ghostface? It just doesn't seem right to me. It's a good album, but it seems a little empty without the Wu.

Solid!!!!!

Can we end the Only Built For Cuban Link comparisons.. That album will never be touched may go down in history as top 5 hip-hop albums ever. That kind work cant be duplicated, and I am a huge WU fan. This album here is solid, Rae always has the lyrics theres no question about that. Other than that it's a album you can just let bump from track one and on.. Nice work!
