Raekwon to Release ‘Cuban Linx 3′ This Year?
It looks like Wu-Tang‘s iron chef Raekwon will be continuing his critically acclaimed ‘Cuban Linx’ series with a third volume, which may see release this year. Rae reportedly announced the album on ‘Silver Rings,’ a song from his forthcoming effort, ‘Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang,’ scheduled for a March 4 release.
“Rae makes a major announcement on this one. ‘Cuban Linx III’ is still coming!” Complex reports, after previewing the finished record. “He says he doesn’t know when, but that the time is coming, and that’s good enough for us.”
Following the release of ‘Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang,’ theClan member has revealed that he’ll be dropping a second album in 2011, which he claims will be “DJ-oriented,” and “harmony-based,” with production by Just Blaze and Kanye West.
We can only assume (and hope) that this record, which is said to be half finished and tentatively scheduled for an October release date, will be ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx III.’ Until then, we have ‘Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang’ to look forward to.
