I have a bad feeling in my stomach that we won’t be seeing Raekwon’s forthcoming Shaoling vs. Wu-Tang anytime soon. Well, at least, I don’t think we’ll be hearing it by the previously announced September [enter Tuesday here] release date. Maybe I’m just being pessimistic, but I feel like he’s re-releasing Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…Pt. II as The Gold Deluxe Edition to hold us over for proper new material. This special edition does feature a few unheard tracks, though, such as “Never Used to Matter,” which features Bun B, and four remixes. And you’ll also get six of the OB4CL2 videos included with your purchase, which you can only make on iTunes.
This special edition of OB4CL2 drops Aug. 17.
