he's not an idiot its his opinion man. but you are in the minority if you dont think the CD is a 5 star classic. im not gonna list other tracks you should listen to cuz the whole cd is incredible, and im assuming you listened to the whole cd already. maybe you should get blazed and listen to the cd one more time straight through. if you still dont really like it then okay.

how come u didnt like it? how many times have u actually sat down and actually listenend to the album? on this one site i found, this 1 guy was saying he didnt like cuban linx cuz the beats were too repetitive and too average.

05-04-2007, 10:38 PM
Got damn your youngness Reign. There's a song on there jus for you it's call "Knuckleheadz".

Anyway, The album iz classic ofcourse most of the shit on there iz R rated and before you were born. To enjoy this classic album more you need to take it back to the classic gansta flicks, when you reach 17 try this:
Start with The Godfather, Scarface, and Goodfellaz, New Jack City, K.O.N.Y, etc. then listen to OB4CL and you'll appreciate it more.:i

And if you really are a Wu Fan it's a must you own all 9 generals FIRST solo albums which includes the ever classic OB4CL (proly the best one for me next Liquid Swordz).:i

Cuban Linx's legendary status derives from its influence first and its music second. The music is top noch but the fact is that hip hop heads know about this because the majority of shit that came out just after it was lame imitations of it (e.g. Nas attempts the Firm). One of the most influential east coast albums of the 90's.

If younger people can't appreciate this then they can't appreciate alot of shit they listen to because this is what made alot of hip hop.

First of all, I too have to say that Only Built For Cuban Linx is among the Wu-Tang and Hip-Hop classics. Since the cat is young, you have to give him a chance to listen to it a bit more so it can grow on him. Be glad he's down with Wu-Tang and not G-Unit. Whoever suggested watchin' the classic gangster flicks to him, much props. That is one of my favorites though. I still can't choose a #1 spot of the Wu solo joints, but it's definitely between Cuban Linx, Liquid Swords, Ironman and Heavy Mental. I know, I know, Killah Priest isn't a general, but that album kicks serious ass anyway.

there really is no need to get mad at the guy. if he aint feelin it he aint feelin it. this should be a lesson to all of yall that no matter how good a piece of music is, everyone isnt gonna like.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and so is crap.

as its already been said MANY hiphop fans love this album and its had a huge impact and influence on hiphop music. this makes cuban linx classic by law.

so whether you like it or not:

water is wet

cuban linx is a hiphop classic

This is one of the most important albums in hip-hop history that you had to hear when it first came out to understand why its so good. You would appreciate those very small details a lot more. Many times it doesn't matter when you hear an album to tell if its good. This one is an exception....sorry to say. You need to understand the time to appreciate the album today.

but the thing is, the mjority of people will not like cuban linx
if you took the world's population, 99%+ of the world would hate the album

the only time it really matters, is if someone who LIKES this type of music hates it, otherwise its obvious that most people wont like it

real hip hop is not a genre that is acceptable to most people

I think this is a bit of an elitist statement, i wasn't into hip hop in 1995, and ive had this album for the last 4 years and think of it as one of my favorite albums, its certainly my most listened to.

Apparently i can't appreciate this album?...

thats a shallow and ignorant argument. what makes you think that ppl outside the us cant understand hiphop? the same way there are ppl in the us that just dont get hip hop. there are ppl that get/dont get hip hop all over the globe so shut the fuck up with offending Europeans

and there is no reason to hate on the topic starter. you need to live with it - not everyone has a similar taste.

OB4CL is a classic, even though I like LS better (many others too)

I really don't care if this dude doesn't like this album, and I don't see why anybody should, but just on the age thing, I had this album on tape back in '95 when it dropped, when I was 12 or 13, and I fucking loved it. In fact it was my favourite album at the time. Loved every track on it. Even the skits and shit. Movie samples. Everything.

Mind you, being a young and foolish Aussie back in a time when hip hop had almost no exposure at all in Australia, I had no fucking idea what they were talking about a lot of the time. I used to wonder why the fuck they referred to an Aussie animal so much (wallabies), haha. Man I loved that joint though. Still do. Like I said, third best hip hop album of all time.

I dont like to reply to stupid shit but to say WUs best regarded album is wack has to be an age thing. I get that its your opinion and I do NOT think this thread should be closed. Think its wack, fine - it doesnt bother me. Just keep in mind that 99% of real hip hop listeners disagree. Usually if everyone is unanimous with one thing and you disagree, the problem is usually with you.

Many MCs and producers consider that one of the all time greats.....along with Illmatic. And I am not even going to touch someone saying those beats are wack. DJ Premier, Pete Rock and Large P.....wack? REALLY? What ever man. Dont say that in public cause you will show your age and that you dont know your history.
