Killah hills 10304

Restaurants on a stake-out
So order the food to take out
Chaos, outside Spark's steakhouse
Maintain the power, I feel the deals gone sour
Nigga Mr. Wedding, late a fuckin half hour
And his man who bought land from Tony Starks
While he was contractin' bricklaying jobs in city parks
he's a loan shark, interest rates a grand to a finger
In a garment district, got it sewn like Singer
Cuz all that talk blasphemy this kid after me
for the heist, in a Burlington Coat Factory
Fuck it, he turned states on my nigga Castro his copilot
who used to drop white sacks of blow on this remote
area, we label Dead Man's Island
Two hundred miles South from Thailand
Right off the docks, I got luxurious custom made yachts
Burial plots, for my niggaz hit with fatal shots
There's no need for us to spray up the scene
I use less men, more powerful shit for my team
Like my man Muhammad from Afghanistan
Grew up in Iran, the nigga runs a neighborhood newsstand
A wild Middle Eastern, bomb specialist
Initiated, at eleven to be a terrorist
He set bombs in bottles of champagne
And when niggaz popped the cork, niggaz lost half they brains
Like this ex-worker, tried to smuggle a half a key
in his left leg, even underwent surgery
They say his pirate limp gave him away
As the feds rushed him, comin' through U.S. Customs
Now look whose on the witness stand singin', a well known soprano
A smash hit from Sammy Gravano
here's the plan minimum for the hit, two hundred grand
Half time at the game blastin niggaz out the stands
The sharp-shooters hit the prosecutor, judges are sent
Photographs of they wives takin baths
Along with briefcase filled with one point five, that's the bribe
Take it or commit suicide
First rule, anyone who schemes on the gold in Syria
I want they small intestines ripped from the interior
I got a price for those jewels, ship em freight cargo
Don't forget to launder the cream through Wells Fargo
Reconstruct those processing plants for the call of Costa Rica
Four hundred barrels of ether
Two hundred pounds of reefer
and fifty immigrants with fake Visas

Life of a drug dealer
Killah hills, 10304
The saga continues

No doubter, classic. Probably the best lyrics ever laid to wax.

Unbelieavble lyrics, totally untouchable (and the beat is pretty friggin hot too).

Like my man Muhammed from Afgahnistan.......lost half their brain. that whole part is just UNREAL
Judges are sent photgraphs.....of their wives takin baths.

And so on.

Genius at work

I just sprinted into this thread to post this exact verse when I see someone already did!

5 star classic and an amazing beat.

No probs - and how good are those lyrics? Another great snippet.

The sharp-shooters hit the prosecutor, judges are sent
Photographs of they wives takin baths
Along with briefcase filled with one point five, that's the bribe
Take it or commit suicide

Only one line I'm not 100% on

It's either luxurious custom made yachts
or the Juryiest custom made yachts

first makes more sense, second sounds more like what he's saying. I dunno.

Possibly the greatest yarn ever laid to wax. An incredibly vivid account of the "life of a drug dealer" details the higher end soldiers in the drug distribution industry, something that is so shrouded in secret, no movie (not even scarface) has come as close to telling like it is. After a 1:25 introduction which is some of the finest skit usage the Wu has ever done, the beat once again turns to high screeching synthesizers and bells, and a back base beat that is the clever subconscious hook of the song similar to that whistle in "Express Yourself" by NWA used to lure the listener in. Most amazing to me in this song is the prophetic nature of the GZA when talking about the terroristic aspect of the drug industry. Two years removed from the first attack on the World Trade Center and the Genius has clearly done his homework. The line

and my man Muhammad from Afghanistan, grew up in Iran, the nigga runs a neighborhood news stand, a wild middle eastern bomb specialist, initiated at eleven to be a terrorist

gives me serious chills when I hear it. This is six years pre-9-11! The metaphors and similes are as on point as can be, intelligently blending word play with story weaving. A tyrant lyrically in terms of GZA's catalog as well as the entire Wu catalog.

Some of GZA's most chilling lyrics yet, it's truly haunting but entertaining fucking stuff. RZA delivers a top notch beat as well.

gza rips it apart, just a microcosm of the whole liquid sword album
