The year was 2009 AD. After countless years of delays and speculation, Wu-Tang Clansman Chef Raekwon unleashed upon an unprepared world Only Buily 4 Cuban Linx II. Originally slated for a 2005 release, the exceptionally big gap between its announcement and its hitting store shelves was quickly forgiven in favor of the rap world realizing it had taken so long because it was being perfected. There's been plenty of delayed rap releases, as well as announced projects that never come to fruition, but the handful of albums we keep getting updates about despite being roughly a decade in production are slowly killing us. Using a highly scientific and completely arbitrary system, we've assembled the odds for those of you willing to make a bet as to whether these oft delayed albums will finally see the light of day this year.
