I was planning on writing a Noteworthy Classic piece about Only Built 4 Cuban Linx or Iron Man, but Raekwon dropped a timely mixtape called Unexpected Victory. I know some people will point out that Iron Man was Ghostface's album, but their chemistry is undeniable and Raekwon's presence is always felt on Ghostface's projects.

Unexpected Victory combines up and coming mc's (JD Era & Fred Da Godson), established underground mc's (Vado & Sauce Money) and veteran mc's (Styles P, Mobb Deep, Busta Rhymes, Capone N Noreaga & CL Smooth) to assemble an eclectic mixtape that will have something for everyone.

Just as a warning; don't expect a classic Wu-Tang sound. There are several producers on the mixtape that I need to check out. Producers include Blue Rocks, Mark Henry, Scram Jones, 9th Wonder, Pro Logic, Moss, Blackstreet, The Olynpicks, Vin Da Chin, BT, Blockstars, Mantic, Statik Selektah and The Fr3shmen.
