Proabably not the best idea as the lead single. Too mellow for some. Wasn't the Beatles sample it was claimed to be

but I really like this. Ghost (to endorse BeoWulf) gives an amazing performance - he takes you into the supermarket where the gun goes off in dramatic detail. I like Rae and Meth too.

Not a 5 star clasic - but 4.5 in my books.

Yea, it's not clear who Wu's marketing campaign was aimed at with this one, but whatever it's still a pretty memorable track.

No, I know it's good, I'm just sick of it. Probably the result of hearling so many interpolations of My Guitar Gently Weeps over the years, My Guitar, Black Cream etc.

its a 2 for me.

not nearly the historic joint it shoulda been. rae & meth verses didnt even grab me at all like they coulda on this one. and a NICE verse from GFK, but i dont think it fits here. not to be any kind of sissy, as i do like GFK's vivid imagery 99.9% of the time, but i think his vulgarity here was out of place.
