You heard of the rasp before but kept waitin
for the sun of song, I keep dancehalls strong
Beats never worthy of my cause, I prolong
Extravangza, time sits still
No propoganda, be wary of the skill
As I bring forth the music, make love to your eardrum
Dedicated to rap nigga beware of the fearsome
Lebanon Don, Malcolm X beat threat
CD massacre, murder to cassette
I blow the shop up, you ain't seen nuttin yet
One man ran, tryin to get away from it
Put your bifocal on, watch me a-cometh
into your chamber like Freddy enter dream
Discombumberate your technique and your scheme
Four course applause, like a black dat to dat
You're stuck on stupid like I'm stuck on the map
Nowhere to go except next show bro
Entertainin motherfuckers can't stop O
in battlin, you don't want me to start tattlin
All upon the stage cause y'all snakes keep rattlin
Bitch, you ain't got nothin on the rich
Every other day my whole dress code switch
So just in case you want to clock me like Sherry
All y'all crab bitches ain't got to worry
Can't get a nigga like Don dime a dozen
Even if I'm smoked out I can't be scoped out
I'm too ill, I represent Park Hill
See my face on the twenty dollar bill
Cash it in, and get ten dollars back
The fat LP with Cappachino on the wax
Pass it in your think, put valve up to twelve
Put all the other LP's back on the shelf
And smoke a blunt, and dial 9-1-7
1-6-0-4-9-3-11
And you could get long dick hip-hop affection
I damage any MC who step in my direction
I'm Staten Island's best son fuck what you heard
Niggaz still talkin that shit is absurd
My repotoire, is U.S.S.R.
P.L.O. style got thrown out the car
and ran over, by the Method Man jeep
Divine can't define my style is so deep
like pussy, my low cut fade stay bushy
like a porcupine, I part backs like a spine
Cut you like a blunt and reconstruct your design
I know you want to diss me, but I can read your mind
Cuz you weak in the knees, like SWV
Tryin to get a title like Wu Killa Bee
Kid change your habit, you know I'm friends with the Abbott
Me and RZA ridin name printed in the tablet
under vets, we paid our debts for mad years
Hibernate the sound, and now we out like beers
and blunt power, born physically power speakin
The truth in the song be the pro-black teachin

one thing I like about this album which sounds kind of contrary to the point of a solo album is that it comes off as a mini-group effort, since Ghost only has two songs by himself on this album.

I liked him when he had more truly solo joints on Supreme Clientele but let's face it, i love wu when it's 3 or more of them on a track even more.

I like the lighter mood RZA inflects too

I am really tempted to vote for "All That I Got is You" partly cos I'm a big sap but mainly cos of the Popa Wu bit at the end, "And you'll see a whole universe/All over again
and again and again and again and again" such a fucking moment

"Even when I'm smoked out I can't be scoped out" just winds up on a loop sometimes when I've had a few too many drinkses.

Say peace to cats who rock mack knowledge
Knowledgists, street astrologists
Light up the mic God, knowledge this
Fly joints that carried your points
Corolla Motorola holder
Play it God, he pack over the shoulder
Chrome tanks, player like Yanks, check the franchise
Front on my guys, my enterprise splash many lives
Rapel on fakes like reflectors
He had sugar in his ear in his last crack career
We can can him, manhandle him, if you wanna
run in his crib-o, get ditto, skate like a limo
And jet to the flyest estate, relate take a break
Break down an eighth and then wait drop it like Drake
Thugs they be booing and screwing, we canoeing
Claim they doin the same shit we doin, fuck your unit
It's the same style, RZA trainable, jump the turnstyle
On the alley tried to challenge God for the new vials
Especially that, aluminum bat in the act
Relax, lay back, sell a grenade a day, it pays black
The Mac-10 flex white cats like Windex
Index finger be sore, bustin these fly scripts
The Wally kid count crazily grands with our plans
Layin with my bitches and my mans in Lex Lands
We losin em, jet to the stash and now Jerusalem
Abusin em, rockin his jewels like we usin em
Low pro star, seven thick waves rock Polar
Roll with the older God, build with the Son and the Star

the production on this is some of RZA's best. but nothing is better than the ridiculous pic of Ghostface on the back of the jewel case.

I've got all the first round releases - but I stopped after the second Meth, Raekwon, GZA etc. albums all sucked

Major Lolzer (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 19 July 2010 23:24 (4 years ago) Permalink

I don't think most of the Wu solo careers could handle the RZA's abdication of production, with a few few exceptions (Ghost, ODB). Took awhile for most of them to figure out who to use besides RZA, some still haven't figured it out...

I think "winter warz" was originally a cappa solo track on the soundtrack to don't be a menace to south central

shakey i think the third gza album (legend of the liquid sword) is pretty awesome

yeah I'm not denying that there's good stuff after the first round - it just took some time for Rae and GZA to kinda figure out how to work effectively without the RZA imho. Ghost didn't really have this problem for some reason...

Major Lolzer (Shakey Mo Collier), Tuesday, 20 July 2010 00:05 (4 years ago) Permalink

Iron Maiden, 260, Daytona 500, and Motherless Child are pretty much the only ones that really stuck with me. Daytona 500 is my go to track here. I love the production on that one - keeping it simple with turntables and rhymes - I wish more hip hop tracks would strip it down like this.

Moodles, Tuesday, 20 July 2010 00:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

IRON MAIDEN! I think THIS is Cappa's best verse on the album.

daytona for the nautilus loop alone

see, I can't vote for daytona cause it's mostly a nautilus loop and it seems wrong to say the best track on an album mainly produced by RZA is an overused sample.

Surprised to be the only vote for Iron Maiden. One of the most exciting album openers I've ever heard. But nothing to argue with here.

2 years pass...

I stop producers careers, the weak spot was their ears
Scorpion darts hits their mark, pierce their heart with silver spears
You're bewildered, my unsaturated, low filtered
Devils still peeled it still they're living built tilted
MC's upon their axis, their body has a tactic
Lactic acid, desert drop cactus, practice
You can never master, it's invincible, Wu-Tang indispensable
One nation under God, indivisible
With liberty and justice, the mic is in my clutches
Thugs who bring ruckus, leave in crutches
Unforgiveable snakes face the double-edged swords starts to swivel
Decapitates the head, makes the projects, more livable
Interchangable, caution flameable
My chamber is ninety-nine plus one unnameable, angles
And strangles, microphone cords start to dangle
Silent as the gases that pass throughout your anal
Retrieve through your doors
Seep out like sweat through the pores
Destroy your internal organs with the biological warfare
