Raekwon's solo debut 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' aka 'The Purple Tape' is a Hip-Hop classic.  The purple cassette was made to be distinctive, like a stamp on a product that lets everyone know this came from Raekwon. Now there is a 'Purple Tape Cassette Box' from Get on Down. The box set is weighs in at 4lbs & is housed in a glass-top, "piano lacquer" box with gold hardware and 'The Purple Tape' placard on the front. The box set includes a cassette only - an actual purple tape of 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' - with a multi-panel fold-out featuring the original cassete artwork. The set also includes a 32 page hard cover liner notes book that features notes from Raekwon and reprinted graphics from the promo singles. A 24'' x 24'' glossy promotional poster & an 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' sticker are also included. The 'Purple Tape Cassette Box' is limited to 1,000 copies & can be purchased through Get On Down for $44.95.
