Only Built for Cuban Linx is an East Coast rap album by rapper Raekwon, released in 1995 (see 1995 in music). His first solo album, Raekwon, a member of The Wu-Tang Clan, quickly established himself a reputation as one of the most critically praised members of the collective. Only Built for Cuban Linx is a solo album, but, like most Wu-Tang solo records, includes a great many collaborations, here especially with RZA and Ghostface Killah. This album also, like most of the records by the members and affiliates of the Wu-Tang Clan, features a lot of movie samples, this time sampled mostly from the English dubbed version of the Hong Kong action film The Killer.
