I don't normally listen to Rap or Hip-Hop but these dudes absolutely rule. They have great rhymes and the lyrics actually mean something. Anyone have an recommendations by them? I only have 3 songs: WTC Ain't Nothing To...., It's Yourz and Protect Ya Neck. I was thinking of buying the Greatest Hits or w/e but wasn't sure if buying an actual album would be better.

dude gravel pit is the ****

its a ****ing awesome tune
If you play Twisted Sister's 'Burn In Hell' backwards, you get a message telling you to go to church and pray every sunday.

I don't listen to them, but they did a song with System of a Down, and it wasn't bad. Sorry, I can't remember the name though.
#6
Definitely get 36 Chambers, you wont be disappointed. Its got WTC Aint Nothing To **** Wit and Protect Ya Neck on it.

Get 36 Chambers, it's probably the most important rap album of the 90's (arguably). If you like that (which you will) get Wu-Tang Forever which has some filler but is still a very strong album with some with some of the Wu's best songs (Triumph!!!.)

If you're still hungry for more their's The W which has some wicked beats, but is a bit more commercial compared to the last two and doesn't have as many hot verses. You also should know that every member has at least one solo album, and seven or eight are worth getting (half of them are Ghostface Killah's.)

The song Triumph is amazing. It features most of the members, and Inspectah Deck kills it from the start. His opening verse is rediculous
#9
Get Gza's solo album Liquid Swords. ****in sick.

Yeah GZA's Liquid Swords is the best Wu-Tang album imho.

36 Chambers, Wu-Tang Forever, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Lynx, Ghostface's Supreme Clientele and Ironman are also favorite. And The W is really underrated, it's also definitely worth getting.


I could never understand their whole 5 Percent / Nation of Gods And Earths philosophy though. It sounds completely ridiculous to me. Sure, most religions do, but these guys are up there wit Scientology in terms of the "how the hell can anyone believe that crap"-factor.
Here's an excerpt from the Wiki page:
In recent years apologists and members of the Nation of Gods and Earths have claimed the organization to be a social movement, but the great majority of scholarly articles and books on the subject classify the group as a religious movement. The Nation of Gods and Earths? teachings advocate that the Blackman, which includes all non-white men, is God.


Basically it seems like a group of pseudo-intellectual megalomaniacs who use questionable scripture to justify their hate for white people through fictional supremacist teachings such as "the blackman is God", whatever the **** that's supposed to mean. And they use such pompous jargon, i mean who calls himself God?

Heh, the lyrics don't mean anything dude... Just admit it, they kick lyrical ass.

GET 36 CHAMBERS! The beats and overall production are terrible, but the lyrics and the flow just totally are something on a much higher level than anything else in their time, before that, or after it.
#12
I disagree about the beats on 36 Chambers. I think it really showcases the ability of what RZA can do with basic bare bones production. His simple piano loops and dark, almost haunting and creepy sounding beats really lay a great backdrop for the members to show off their skills.

I agree, the RZA introduced a new style that broke the G-Funk mould that had it's clutches on the rap scene. Plus, the beats from C.R.E.A.M., PYN and Chessboxin' are some of the sickest ever.

Yeah I totally agree. The beats on 36 Chambers can blow away anything Timbaland has ever done.

I disagree, apart from Gravel Pit I thought that album was terrible.- Probably becuase of the commercial feel it has that you mentioned.

I didn't think The W had a commercial feel. It's basically just dark, haunting soul samples. The most commercial song is Gravel Pit and imo it nothing like any of the other songs.

I've just finished listening to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx again, I heard Rae's next album will be released jointly by Wu Music & Aftermath. http://www.dubcc.com/forum/index.php?topic=121883.0

Wu Tang are the ****.

Well obviously.

Not only have they achieved exactly what they set out to accomplish as a group they're also one of the greatest and most influental groups of the 90's

I have at least one solo album from all of the members (with the exception of Masta Killa and U God) and so far Inspecta Deck's new joint is my favorite. He's really underated. I know everyone says Liquid Swords and Fishscale are the best but the Deck is right up there.

Wu-Tang is so good...maybe the best hip-hop act of all time, if you include all of the solo s*** by all of the Clan members in addition to what's actually on the Wu-Tang albums.

--> Get "Shadowboxing", by GZA and Method Man (I think RZA might have done the beat), if there's one song that sums up their hip-hop/kung-fu syle, that's probably it (but, alas, there's not one song--you gotta grab a good amount of their stuff before you really capture everything they're about).

Other good songs to start with:

- All That I Got Is You (Ghostface Killah)
- Severe Punishment (Wu-Tang Clan)
- Knock Knock (GZA)
- Cisco Kid (Method Man, Redman, Cypress Hill)
- Buck 50 (Ghostface Killah)
- The Show (Method Man)
- Run (Ghostface Killah)
- Noble Art (Method Man, w/ Redman & IAM)
- Rules (Wu-Tang)
- 1212 (Method Man w/ Redman)
- C.R.E.A.M. (Wu-Tang)
- Torture (Method Man)
- Tical (Method Man)
- Fame (GZA)
- Gold (GZA)
- Breaker Breaker (GZA)

Method Man and Redman have oodles of gold among their collaborations, seek and ye shall find.

"...less men, more powerful s*** for my team / Like my man Muhammed from Afghanistan, grew up in Iran--the n**** runs a neighborhood news stand/ A wild Middle-Eastern bomb specialist, recruited at age 11 to be a terrorist / He'd set bombs in bottles of champagne, and when n****s popped the corks, n****s lost half they brains"
-Killah Hills 10304, GZA (just thought I'd throw it in there)
I needja right now to look at your neighbor...cuz a lot a y'all think y'all goin' t' heaven (huh)...and y' ain't gon' go! So I need you right now t'look at your neighbor,an' say 'neighbor', say 'NEEEIIGHHH-BAH':...YOU AIN'T GOIN'!! You ain't goin'...

Could anyone possibly send me the Wu-Tang song "The W"? My friend played it on his ipod the other day and owning the album of the same name I was like wtf why isn't it on there? I did some research and found out it was only on the overseas import. Help would be much appreciated as I can't find it on limewire anywhere.

Try Soulseek. Its basically a more varied version of Limewire, its got everything on it.

Are you sure that's what it's called because I have the CD and can't see anything about a song called that on it either in the folder or on wiki. Did the chorus go "Got to check out the W" repeated a lot? And if it is then it follows on from the end of the song Jah World.

If you still can't find it I'll upload it for you though.

Yeah it goes like that. And it's supposed to be a bonus track on the european import.

EDIT: The song at the end of Jah World on my CD is called Clap and is completely different then the one I'm looking for.

Yeah you're right, I just skipped through all the tracks and it's after "10 - Do You Really (Thang, Thang)", are you sure it's not there? Because it's a bit weird that a bonus track is tagged on 2 songs before the end.

It gets turned down and goes into a skit after a minute anyway but I'm uploading it now, if it's not right let me know.
