    Preservation produced "Still Grimey" not RZA.

    Instrumental - Introduction
    A nice beat with the HBO starting thingy. Sort of a wasted beat because it is nice. No rating...

    GZA & Ras Kass - Lyrical Swords
    Probably nicest beat on CD, GZA and Ras Kass; best collabo. Both of their verses are amazing. This is a bit disappointing though that they both only have one verse and the rest of the song is the beat. But they still both have amazing verses regardless. 9.5/10

    Vast Aire, Timbo King, Prodigal Sunn, & Byata - Slow Blues
    I like everyone on this track. The beat is pretty nice not "normal" rap beat. Everyone has hot verses. Some sick lyrics though, Vast is really nice on this. It is a little slow going but I am feelin' it. 8.5/10

    Sean Price, U-God, C-Rayz Walz, & Prodigal Sunn - Still Grimey
    This is a pretty nice collabo, really nice track but not too great... 7/10

    Bruce Lee - Skit
    Skit. Not rating...

    Casual, Rock Marciano, Vordual Mega, & Tragedy Khadafi - Think Differently
    Probably the best beat on the album. This is sick as hell. I don't think anyone could sound bad on this beat. Plus everyone has pretty nice verses. 9.5/10

    Jim Jarmusch - Infomercial #1
    Not rating...

    RZA & MF Doom - Biochemical Equation
    I like this beat, this is a pretty nice track. MF Doom sounds out of place on this but he still gets a nice verse in. RZA's second verse is weird as f*ck. This song has nice lyrics but they are sort of all over the place. 8/10

    DJ Noize - O.D.B. Tribute
    Nice cutting but not a real song. Just cutting and inserts of sh*t Wu members have said in song making a tribute, not rating... RIP ODB.

    Del The Funky Homosapien - Fragments
    Not a great beat. Depends, if you like Del's weird as style, you might like this. I actually like this because it is unique from the whole CD. His flow and style are really different and nice. He spits some real weird and unique sh*t on this song... Something makes this real nice, would be better with a nicer beat. 8.5/10

    Think Differently - Intermission Skit
    Weird... Not rating.

    Bronze Nazareth, Solomon Childs, & Byata - Street Corners
    Bronze produced most of this album and did a tight job but his rapping isn't so tight. Solomon is tight as hell and his verse is veryyy nice and pretty deep. Byata is pretty nice too, best female emcee (along with Jean Grae). 7.5/10

    Littles, Khalid, & Planet Asia - Listen
    Not bad but not too good. Planet is pretty good other two are just okay. And this beat pisses me off. 6/10

    Jim Jarmusch - Infomercial #2
    Not rating...

    La The Darkman, Scaramanga, Shallah, Ras Kass, & GZA - Verses
    One of the sickest songs, I have ever heard. This beat is craaazy. This line up is legendary. I loveee this beat. Darkman is one of the most underrated and craziest rapper. Ras Kass is one of my favourite rappers. GZA is my favourite. Whoever Shallah is, he rips this track aswell. This is just like the craziest collabo. No one spits anything even remotely weak, all DEEP verses. 11/10 =p

    Aesop Rock & Del The Funky Homosapien - Preservation
    Not a classic beat. But a damn nice song, if you like these two artists a lot, this is probably a classic to you. 8.5/10

    C.C.F. Division - Cars On The Interstate...
    If this wasn't underground this would be considerated the club song. Quick beat, quick spits. A okay song. 6.5/10

    J-Live & R.A. The Rugged Man - Give It Up
    I love this beat and RA spits one of his best career verses. His flow on this, is one of the best ever. He just doesn't stop, it is amazing. And it is still his weird verses sayin' odd things like "All that sh*t you heard about me, is probably true. Heard I got the AIDS virus, I probably do." J-Live has a nice verse but doesn't seem so nice going after RA's amazing verse. 9.5/10

    Bronze Nazareth - Back Down
    One of the illest producers trying to rap, sort of like 4th Disicple rapping. You are better than the average mainstream rapper. But when you are rapping with people like Ras, GZA, MF Doom etc. You sound pretty sh*tty. Plus his flow is bad (decent lyrics though) 6/10


    Overall: 8/10, couple tracks skippable, rest are nice. Got me into some artists I didn't really listen too much...

    Well, he isn't too bad, as I said. But when there is these other amazing artists he doesn't sound too good.

    I'm a huge fan of that Del track. That sing-song flow that he kicks before every verse is INSANE. I like Biochemical Equation now that RZA added drums to his second verse and it sounds much much better mastered. Bronze definitely impressed me, along with the other producers on the album - overall, very very satisfying.

    Bronze got ill lyrics, his verses on this album are dope, the guys who said his mcing isn't that hot is straight tripping, Black Dawn and Street Corners are piff. He spits some nice multis. I can't wait for his solo album, he sounds like a cross between Timbo and Ghost in terms of voice, but he's got his own lyrical style, he has some intelligent lyrics and some obscure references.
