The world’s friendliest comedian, Ron Funches, steps into the murderous, drug-dealing rap game through one of the greatest Wu Tang Clan solo albums of all time: Raekwon’s 1995 release Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.

The world can be a cold, hard place that suffers no fools and shows now mercy to those in suffering. Few artists have ever been able to capture the dark underbelly of America the way that hip-hop giants the Wu Tang Clan have. And among the supergroup, Raekwon stands out as a master of lyrical storytelling and mindboggling wordplay, to which his 1995 debut solo album Only Built for Cuban Linx is an eternal testament. So densely crafted with harrowing true-to-life tales of the New York drug trade, it only seemed fitting that this album be deconstructed by none other than Ron Funches. Ron is known for his bright, positively jovial persona, having quickly positioned himself as one of the fastest rising stars in comedy, with appearances in Curb Your EnthusiasmBlackishNew Girl, and his own Comedy Central special, Giggle Fit, under his belt.
