A Documentary On Raekwon's "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" Is In The Works
Raekwon and Ghostface screened a trailer for "The Purple Tape Files" at Sundance this weekend.
Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is a certified classic, depending who you're talking to, it could be viewed as the greatest Wu-Tang solo project (though it's almost cheating considering Ghostface is on nearly every track). It also gained the rare honor of a legitimately great sequel, with 2009's OB4CL2, but as the 20th anniversary approaches this year, Rae has one more surprise for fans of the project.
According to the Chef himself, he and Ghost hosted their own "Purple Carpet Screening" of the trailer for a documentary on the iconic debut, titled The Purple Tape Files. So far, there's no word on when the film will be released, but we're guessing it should be around August 1st, the albums 20th birthday.
Check out Raekwon's tweets and Instagram posts about the screening below, and check back for further updates on the doc.
