Default Only Built for Cuban Linx 2 was the best Rap Album last decade


The lyrics, beat, story telling, features, concept ...... OMFG this is the Greatest Album of the 2000 Decade!

Can't name a better album from last decade that is remotely close to OB4CL2

Beats from RZA, Dr.Dre, J Dilla, The Alchemist

I thought the contributions from the featured artists were surprisingly weak, luckily raekwon was in top form. The production was good. The middle of the album is where the meat is, the beginning and end is mostly throw away to me.

Favorite songs:
Black Mozart
Gihad
New Wu
Baggin Crack
Surgical Gloves
Canal Street
Ason Jones


I wouldn't call it a GREAT album, but a good one.

Its a classic IMO, no matter what era of hip hop you put it in.
