    Default The most underrated RZA beat from the classic Ironman album


    After The Smoke Is Clear.


    Those drums have a raw sound and the way he flipped that sample is amazing. Never gets mentioned as his best work.

    Definitely one of my favorites atm

    Hot track. I always thought the most underrated track on here was the song that replaced "Box in Hand", can't remember what it's called. The way the beat switches up for all the verses is insane, and Ghost and Meth come with some of their best shit. Everyone seems to think the original with Streetlife is better but I'd take this one over it any day.

    Yes, that one is amazing but I've seen that one go by here a lot of times.

    Thats the best song to bump in your ride with a loud system no doubt along with Daytona 500.

    After The Smoke is easily the sickest track on the album. I love Ironman so much.

    That drum sample was a good snatch.

    I like this track, but to me Black Jesus was the best and most underated beat from that album. It's so damn epic and no one talks about it. Beat starts at 1:13.

    Emotions are for the weak, so I sold mine to the highest bidder.
