CD, Album, Limited Edition


When this album dropped back in '95, it was commonly referred to as "the purple tape".

The first pressings of the cd version came out with a purple case. Later pressings would just come in a black case.

First Purple Tape [Autographed Version]
The OG release of OB4CL, and most exclusive of the collection, was printed in very limited quantities. Advertised to be signed by Rae himself, the cassette and the CD were released with his autograph printed on them. It’s unclear how many copies are released, but these versions had “Shallah Raekwon” emblazoned on them.

Second Purple Tape [Non-Autographed Version]
Very similar to it’s more exclusive older brother, this version of the tape is the more readily available of the “Purple Tape.” Exactly the same (song-wise) as the original version, the only noticeable difference between the tapes, is that this version contains no autograph.
