Corey Woods (born January 12, 1970), better known by his stage name Raekwon, is an American rapper and a member of Wu-Tang Clan. He released his solo debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… in 1995 to universal critical acclaim. He has since recorded numerous solo albums, as well as continuing to work with Wu-Tang and providing an extensive number of guest contributions to other hip hop artists’ works. He is the founder of his own label ICEH20 Records.

Raekwon has been cited as a pioneer of mafioso rap. In 2007, the editors of About.com placed him on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007).

Before Woods joined the Wu-Tang Clan his rap name was Sha Raider. Woods joined Wu-Tang Clan, an originally nine-member hip-hop group that later added rapper Cappadonna, based in the Staten Island and Brooklyn borough of New York City, in 1992. He performed under the stage name Raekwon The Chef as well as the aliases Shallah Raekwon, Louis Rich and Lex Diamonds.

In 1994, Raekwon signed a solo deal with Loud Records and released his debut single “Heaven & Hell” for the soundtrack to the film Fresh. His first solo LP, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…, was released August 1, 1995 to rave reviews, though not to as much commercial success as fellow Wu-Tang member Method Man’s Tical. Nonetheless, the album was immediately deemed a hip-hop classic. According to Steve Huey of AllMusic, “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… contained a narrative album format revolving around cocaine trafficking, criminal activity, and a rise through the ranks of the illegal industry.” RZA added, “It was always like a crime mafia story for me.” Wu-Tang member Ghostface Killah appeared on over half of the album’s tracks, with Wu-Tang member RZA producing the album in its entirety. Apart from working alongside RZA on Staten Island, Raekwon and Ghostface went to Barbados and Miami to write lyrics for the album.

Raekwon insists Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…’ was aimed at listeners who could relate to the underground, street culture. In an interview with HipHop DX, Raekwon said, “This album was just the definition of everything that was in front of us. So where we was trying to go, we was trying to get out the hood. We wanted to buy the most expensive cars and jewelry and different things like that. So that’s why I guess I always call the album… Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… because it was only built for a certain lifestyle or people that understood that language. But eventually, it would break off to people looking at it as a movie and respecting it saying, ‘Yo, wow! This is authentic. This is something that never been done before’…So, I just wanted to give the world something that they could feel is brand new, it’s different, but it’s real.”
