Raekwon “The Chef,” one of the most visible members of the infamous Wu-Tang Clan, made Hip Hop history in 1995, when he dropped the “Only Built for Cuban Linx” album. Almost two decades later “Only built for Cuban Linx” is considered by fans and critics to be the album that changed the landscape of Hip Hop forever. The video of the hit single “Can It Be So Simple” from the same album spawned a fashion craze, as Raekwon sported a difficult to find “SNOW BEACH” jacket by Ralph Lauren. Raekwon changed the face of Hip Hop through his music while unknowingly influencing a generation with his fashion. The hard to find “Snow Beach” jacket, is now a coveted piece of Hip Hop history. Complex Magazine ranked Raekwon’s use of the jacket in the video, second in “The 50 Greatest Fashion Statements in Rap Video History”, ranking only behind Run DMC’s lace less Adidas, in the “Walk this Way” video. CL-95 is the celebration of this epic moment in Hip Hop music and fashion. Raekwon and his team cooked up the idea in 2014 to create a “Snow Beach” inspired jacket marking the 20 year anniversary of the “Only Built for Cuban Linx” album.
