Here’s the FINAL single before the release of Thoughtcrime. on 8/4!!
For a Fact
He wasn’t scared of the Shogun, but the Shogun was scared of him. Maybe that was the problem…
A haunting Kung Fu sample intro sets the tone for GZA’s lyrical masterpiece. Backed by the ever-reliable talent of the RZA, the Genius forcibly tours the listener around his deeply philosophical mind. This album’s release cemented Wu Tang’s dominance of 1995 and further contributed to their elite Hip Hop status.
And from that, sons are born and guns are drawn
Clips are fully loaded, and then blood floods the lawn
Disciplinary action was a fraction of strength
that made me truncate the length one tenth
Destruction worker, who was caught for his bomber
No time to swing the hammer that was hangin’ from his Farmers
Ghostface’s solo debut, while of equal quality, stands slightly apart from his fellow clansmen’s individual works. The extensive soul sampling is reflective of Ghostface’s more introspective side lyrically. Although it may not be quite as gritty and raw as Liquid Swords or Cuban Linx, Ironman is real. Ghost’s storytelling style sucks you in and creates an almost documentary-like atmosphere.
All That I Got Is You
Seven o’clock, pluckin’ roaches out the cereal box
Some shared the same spoon, watchin’ saturday cartoons
Sugar water was our thing, every meal was no thrill
In the summer, free lunch held us down like steel
With coke and a dollar bill stems and crack capsules
Take a blast fool but we trap up crews it’s natural
like soybean, burn like a laser beam
My vaccine I shoot it firm and it connects like sideburns
The first solo Wu Tang effort after 36 Chambers marks a significant turning point in Hip Hop. Method Man’s flow completely redefined the word itself. Both Tical and Ready to Die set the bar incredibly high for any current or up and coming MCs. Meth’s way with words on Tical undoubtedly earns him the crown of Best Flow in Hip Hop.
Bring the Pain
In your Cross Colour, clothes you’ve crossed over
Then got Totally Krossed Out and Kris Kross
Who da boss? Niggaz get tossed to the side
And I’m the dark side of the Force
If you ain’t with me then forget me
Niggas try to stick me, retaliation, no hesitation, shifty
Creepin’ niggas in the dark, triggas with no heart
Rippin’ ass apart, I’ll be swimmin’ with the sharks now
Stay out my water or it’s manslaughter
Return to the 36 Chambers is ODB as we love him best: flipping out and doing whatever he wants. Each beat is rugged in a way that perfectly suits Ol’ Dirty’s MC style. This isn’t an album; it’s a crazy dude ranting for 70 minutes. We love it.
Energy buildin’, takin’ all types of medicines
Your ass thought you were better than
Ason, I keep planets in orbit
While I be comin’ with teeth, bitin’ more shit
Brooklyn Zoo II
I’ll grab the mic and now I damage you, cut your whole stamin-u
Ohh, sssshit, nahh
I’ll grab the mic and now I damage ya, cut your whole staminuh
Here comes the medical examinuh
One verse then you out for the count
Bring the ammonia make sure he sniffs… the right amount
