Round By Round Break Down of the Raekwon vs Ghostface Killah Verzuz

Two Legends from Staten Island.  Two Legends from the Wu Tang Clan. Two legends with many names, but best known as Raekwon and Ghostface Killah.  The Raekwon vs Ghostface Verzuz pins the legends against each other, but its obviously a display of love for the duo who once partnered to create the classic album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.
