Raekwon last released an album with 2017’s ‘The Wild’. Last year, he teased that the third and final instalment of the ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx’ series was on the way.
“It’s time we close that trilogy out,” he said in an interview. “It’s time to close that trilogy. I was holding all night back to tell you that. ‘Cuban Linx III’ baby, the trilogy. It’s over after that. It’s over.”
Raekwon did not give any hints as to when ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx III’ would arrive or who would feature on it. However, in 2012, the rapper told MTV it would “only be right” to get Kanye West on the third part of the trilogy.
Meanwhile, the line-ups for the next VERZUZ battles have been confirmed. Method Man and Redman will go up against each other, while The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire will also go head-to-head in the series.
Future battles include a “Ladies night”, a Mother’s Day special and a rematch. Which artists will be taking part in those is yet to be announced.
