Raekwon revisits "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..." highlight "Criminology."


DJBooth's "Inside The Verse" series has artists recount the making of one of their best-known tracks, often giving us the real-life stories that inspired specific lines. The latest clip has Raekwon detailing "Criminology," a stellar cut from his 1995 classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...

In addition to his verse, The Chef breaks down the video, in which he's shown on the corner looking over his shoulders for cops. As he tells it, lines in the song like "the old lady snitched" are based in reality, although he also informs us that some older residents were more accommodating when he and others were running from cops.
