Although it was mostly filled with equally fiery and icy street anthems, Raekwon’s epic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…Pt. II also had a distinctly touching moment in “Ason Jones.” It serves as the Chef’s tribute to his deceased Wu-Tang brother, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who passed six years ago today. To celebrate the life of his fallen comrade, Rae has offered up the track for free download. It’s a fitting piece that feels neither forced nor fake, only heartfelt. And it’s made only that much more moving by the J Dilla beat floating behind the lyrics of Rae and snippets of interviews with the ODB.
