    i've never really liked ls or understood why its been put on a pedestal. im assuming its the comic book cover that gets all these craccas excited.

    i used to bump LS alot back in the day when i had the cassette and before my walkman ate that shit up. i don't feel like it aged very well. i had a problem with how the prod. was kind of the same all the way through, but i guess that could be a good or bad thing depending on who you ask

    I would agree that track for track Ironman is doper than LS, Im a little biased Ghost of this era to Pretty Toney Album being my favorite mc. But LS is better as a whole piece of art being themeaticaly and musically more cohesive than Ironman. Ironman has inumerable more plays than LS in my sound systems.

    Black dudes don't read comic books as children? Wu reference comic characters all the time... do you not understand who they're talking about?

    Yeah, that's a pretty dumb comment there.

    I got them both in my cd player in my car, and I find myself listening to LS more since Ironman has too many goddamn skits and mindless talking, and Ghost only has like two solo tracks. not to mention the second half gets boring.

    on another note, mtv made a list of the 10 greatest hip hop albums ever (back when mtv was legit), and even though none of the Wu made the final top ten, 36 Chambers, Cuban Linx and LS were mentioned in various people's top ten lists.

    anyway, Cuban Linx is the best Wu solo, period.

    For me...

    1. Only Built for Cuban Linx
    2. Ironman/Liquid Swords

    Ghost is my favorite MC so i probably like hype that LP a little more than somebody else may.

    The other thing is that Liquid Swords has got like everybody on there. Iron Man is really missing GZA's stamp on the record. Ghostface blessed LS with one of his best verses ever on 4th Chamber... where's GZA on IM? Cappadonna just took over any chance those other dudes had.

    As far as personal preference goes, I take Ironman as well.

    Obviously I understand that Liquid Swords had a more broad cultural impact.

    Also, as Lo*Tec mentioned previously, LS is more thematically and musically cohesive and more narrative driven than Ironman overall.

    And the ridiculous statement that "crackas" got excited over a comic book cover is baseless.
