After years of speculation about whether the thing even existed, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II finally hit stores yesterday. Rae celebrated the occasion by taking to his Twitter and posting a link to a video for a song that's not even on the album.
It's not entirely clear why Rae spent what looks like a decent amount of money (by 2009 standards, anyway) shooting a video for "Walk Wit Me", an iTunes-only Cuban Linx II bonus cut. (At this point, though, Cuban Linx II is outselling Jay-Z's The Blueprint 3 at iTunes, so Rae is doing something right.)
It's not too easy to follow the video's narrative, but it seems to center around Rae and his accomplices killing off a series of drug-trade rivals in Hawaii. Mostly, though, it seems like a great excuse for a series of badass images of Rae scowling hard against an electric blue sky. I love the shot at 2:11, when Rae hides behind a newspaper, waiting for a mark in an elevator.Check it out below:
