On various songs of his 1995 debut album "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...", Raekwon made references to Cristal. In an interview with XXL Magazine, the Wu-Tang Clan member even claims that him and Ghostface were the first rappers to mention the champagne in their lyrics: "We was the first to be talking that Cristal shit. I know that for a fact. Back then we would go do dinners and shit with [Loud Records president] Steve Rifkind. And our mission would be like, when we sit at the table, we want the best fuckin’ wine they got in the building. They came out with Cristal. Me and Ghost is loving how fruity the bottle looked. It cost more than the muthafuckin’ other, so we was like, Cristal, nigga! That’s our new shit!"
