Raekwon, one of the sharp swordsman of Shaolin today will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his classic solo debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and a new interview broke down some of its finer points.

If you’re a fan of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… then you should be already familiar with the movie The Killer. SUPREME has a new drop that honors the legendary flick.
