Wu-Tang Clan member/hip-hop legend, Raekwon, has re-released his original masterpiece record Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, on purple casette tape. The re-release is a boxed set that includes the original album on a purple casette tape, a sticker, 32-page hard-cover liner note book, a glass top, a metal display box, a poster, and more.
This edition is limited to only 1,000 copies. The original version of this album that was released back in 1995 was actually initially printed on purple cassette, and 10,000 copies were released. After those 10,000 copies were sold out, RCA reverted back to printing the albums on clear cassette tapes, making the original purple tapes a collector’s item.
Raekwon also released a new music video today for “The Scrolls,” off his latest record, Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang. Watch it here.
