First of all, I'm a big Wu fan and I LOVE everything Wu-Tang made from Enter the 36 Chambers to Forever. Also, my first language isn't language, so my question might be caused of this.
What I wanted to ask is, don't you think some of the Wu lyrics are kind of empty? They don't describe anything, they don't storytell anything, just lyrics of being the "best". Example:
I smoke on the mic like smokin Joe Frazier
The hell raiser, raisin hell with the flavor
Terrorize the jam like troops in Pakistan
Swingin through your town like your neighborhood Spiderman
So uhh, tic toc and keep tickin
While I get ya flippin off the shit I'm kickin
The Lone Ranger, code red, danger!
Deep in the dark with the art to rip charts apart
The vandal, too hot to handle
Ya battle, you're sayin Goodbye like Tevin Campbell
Roughneck, Inspector Deck's on the set
The rebel, I make more noise than heavy metal.
Not that I'm saying this verse is bad, exactly opposite - it's fucking great. But the thing is, don't you guys think that some of the Wu verses just lack point? It's almost battle-rap, describing how good the MC is and how good Wu is. It's definitely their style, but there should be more content in some of the verses though. Maybe it's just that I don't understand some of them, maybe others think like this too?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all the Wu tracks are like these. There are mad story-telling or deep tracks. 260, Heaven and Hell from OB4CL, Tearz from Enter the 36 Chambers, etc etc.
What I'm really looking for is opinions. Thanks.
