Chain Reaction

August 1 marks the 19th anniversary of Raekwon releasing his classic debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. With Ghostface riding shotgun, the two brought their mafioso rhymes to the world with such hits as "Glaciers of Ice" and "Ice Cream." They also showed off their signature swag and trunk jewelry game. As we commemorate the release of this chapter in the Wu novel, let's take a look at other MCs who were known to cause chain reactions with their own Cuban links and other certified neck pieces.
