All my Al Capone, Al Pacino niggas
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… was the first Wu album to eschew the old school kung fu flicks, focusing instead on mafioso and drugs imagery.
Al Capone and Al Pacino embody the crime family theme that runs throughout the album. Capone was a famous real life mobster, and Pacino is famous for playing mobsters in films like The Godfather and Scarface (undoubtedly one of the most referenced films in Hip Hop and sampled heavily on this album’s Criminology).
