For those of you that dont know, this album was released before the Wu-tang clan formed when GZA's name was just "The Genius" and was signed to Cold Chillin records. Both of these albums are long out of print and the first one is rarer than the second. You'd be lucky to buy one of these in a used record store or on ebay.....if you try to buy it on ebay, be prepared to pay a lot for it.

This is an old school 1990 type album....it has no wu sound at all. That may be why the album isnt liked by some wu fans....while some enjoy this album alot.

I never heard the 1991 version but I thought the reissue was good.

GZA/Genius - Words from the Genius (1994 reissue)


I bought this in a mall in Brampton (Ontario) in 1994 I remember seeing it one day and not buying it cause I had no money, then going back and getting it. Pass the Bone is a great song.

this CD is awesome. sometimes the beats are kind of nondescript and similar-sounding but that's because of the era it came from. there are some awesome tracks, genius is on point, and you hear a side that he never really explores (that being partying and women). "stay out of bars" has a great beat as do come do me, pass the bone, those were the days, feel the pain.

i give it like a 7.9

Picked up this album a while ago and i think its dope!. GZA is on point throughout, and its funny hearing him rapping about girls 'what are silly girls made of', clubbin 'stay out of bars', and sex 'superfreak'. Its a far cry from his dark lyrics on Liquid Swords. The production is nothing outstanding, but it is solid, and if u know what hip-hop beats are like from that era, then you'l know what to expect, as there are typical of the time.

Overall id give it 7.5 or 8/10

definitely not my favorite GZA album, but it does have a lot of decent tracks. Pass the Bone is definitely classic, and Words from the Genius. i always skip Come Do Me though hahaha.

7.5/10

A lot better than I expected. Give nthat I laready had all the other GZA albums, it was nice to suddenly hear him as a hungry young mc coming with loads of energy and a different style/subject matter.

This was a much better than I expected album. It was weird at first hearing Gza rhyme about females, but he brought it off well with plenty of skill. The production is great too.
