With the 20th anniversary of Raekwon’s debut album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx approaching this summer (Aug. 1), the self-proclaimed Chef teamed up with longtime Wu-Tang Clan partner Ghostface Killah to make a documentary commemorating the classic LP. The duo hosted a special sneak peek screening at the Sundance Film Festival for their upcoming film The Purple Tape Files, which will showcase how the legendary album was made. In a recent interview with Complex, Raekwon and Ghostface dished on how pivotal it is for them to create this film for their fans. “Most importantly is about the people being able to get all the answers that they wanted when they heard this album,” Raekwon said. “‘Cause we was young boys, we was in our prime so getting that shot to really impress the world with your music, we didn’t never think it will be embraced so hardly like this. And 20 years later is time for you to see this film to go into the file cabinets on how this was made.” SEE ALSO: Wu-Tang’s ‘A Better Tomorrow’ Told Through 10 RZA Quotes The “Shaolin” rapper also took to Twitter and Instagram to give more details on the project and #PurpleCarpet screening:
