Video: Pusha T Talks How Raekwon’s ‘The Purple Tape’ Inspired ‘DAYTONA’


The 23rd anniversary of Raekwon’s classic debut album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx aka The Purple Tape because of the purple color of the original cassette.

Pusha T referred to his new album Daytona as his “purple tape” on his song “The Games We Play”. He sits down Jayson Rodriguez of VEVO in Raekwon’s neighborhood Stapleton Houses on Staten Island to pay homage to the album.

“This is the best rendition [of The Purple Tape] I could’ve tried. The inspiration and feeling was something we were trying to harness”.
