This set is sure to have Hip Hop heads on Ebay searching for a Walkman like bounty hunter. The good folks over at GetOnDown.Com have put together a stunning series of deluxe edition releases for Hip Hop classics by GZA, Pharcyde and Ol Dirty Bastard. Now they can add Raekwon’s classic debut Only Built For Cuban Linx as their latest triumph. Called “The Purple Tape” due to the initial limited edition run of purple colored cassettes when the album released in 1995, this album is considered one of the Wu-Tang Clan’s best. Only 1000 of the limited edition box set, which includes a working cassette, will be available. I actually got to see this set live and in living color and it is as great as it seems. Buy yours now at www.GetOnDown.com. Check details and pics of the set below.
