For the first time ever in the UK, Raek­won and Ghost­face Kil­lah are per­form­ing Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… as well as more Wu-Tang clas­sics.

This marks the first UK per­form­ance of the legendary, solo debut album of Amer­ic­an rap­per and Wu Tang Clan mem­ber Raek­won. They’ll be joined by Manchester 9-piece hip-hop col­lect­ive The Mouse Out­fit, and turn­tab­lism mas­ter Mr Thing.

Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… was first released on August 1, 1995, by Loud Records and RCA Records. The album was loosely com­posed to play like a film with Raek­won as the star, fel­low Wu-Tang mem­ber Ghost­face Kil­lah as the guest-star, and pro­du­cer RZA as the dir­ect­or.

It has received acclaim from music crit­ics and writers over the years, with many laud­ing it as one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time. With its emphas­is on Mafia insinu­ations and organ­ised crime, the album is widely regarded as a pion­eer of the mafioso rap sub-gen­re. Singles released include Heav­en & Hell, Crim­in­o­logy, Ice Cream and Rainy Dayz.

This show offers a rare chance to see these two hip-hop legends per­form­ing one of the most pivotal hip-hop albums of the 1990’s.
