Originally released in ‘06/'07 as the appetizer to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, The Vatican Mixtape series consists of a vast collection of unreleased tracks, Wu-Tang and solo classics ("Shame On A Nigga," "Diesel," "Ghetto Boy" and "Yae-Yo"), as well as some of Raekwon's best guest work through the years ("The Heist," "Brown Paper Bag" and "Bump Bump"). Volume 1 features verses from Busta Rhymes, Roc Marciano, Nas, and several Wu-Tang brethren including RZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, and Ol' Dirty Bastard. Special guest production was contributed by Large Professor, Pete Rock, Madlib and Scram Jones. Tying everything together is DJ Riddler, who weaves in several skits and blends throughout, giving it that official mixtape sound. This 2LP-set marks the first time this volume and series gets pressed to wax, and features completely new artwork for a fresh look.
