I rushed a bit to say that but there are equal doses of drama, madness, fantasy, streetwisdom on it that all together make it the most real to me. Not real in the sense that they were part of the Gambino family or anything

Whoa. This is a great supplement to the Wu-Tang Manual. There are equally great quotes here too.
Favorite Line: "Not saying all Italians are mobsters, but you know, we ain't blind and shit." - Method Man
And this was interesting: "His voice should be compressed on 90 MHZ and sloped down." - RZA on Ghostface

Summer's coming and this is a great summer album.

yeah i got that. but when?

Rizzx, Monday, 28 March 2005 18:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I assume it's gotta be the new one--I buy it regularly and haven't seen this one yet so it's probably just out in NYC or wherever. I'm in Seattle, where magazines show up a week late, usually.

Who else thinks the ‘No man is good and bad at the same time, either you’re good or you're bad’ at the end of the album sort of cancels the whole thing? The feeling I get from the album is the opposite of ‘good or bad’, it feels much more subtle and multi-shaded.
