Deck is still sick as fuck on the mic
I'm the Greatest Scientifically Inclined Mind Since Einstein!!!!
FIRST VERSE CLEARLY SHOWS THAT DECK IS THE BEST WU MEMBER IF GIVEN THE RIGHT BEAt
good flow...sounded like he went a little slow for the beat, didnt really seem in sync
all made classics and albums of very high quality. Deck's solo carreer would be good for the normal rapper but it's Deck so no.
On Wu-Tang Forever he was the best tho, definitely.
u cant give credit to rae for that album being a classic.
its like saying phife dawg is an amazing rapper because of atcq albums
How do you define artists? Ofcourse their capabilities, but in a musical sense to prove yourself you have to drop albums of the highest quality. Inspectah Deck didn't. We can talk about how it's underrated but at the end of the day it's no 36 Chambers, Liquid Swords, Ironman or Cuban Linx. Tical and Return To The 36 Chambers are also inferior to these albums, but Deck's is the worst out of all of those.
Also when you look at Raekwon he grew lyrically and his flow got better throughout the 90s. You can hear this from 36 Chambers to Cuban Linx to Ironman and especially on Forever and Immobilarity. You could see the progress, but with Deck you can see him drop the worlds greatest verses and then he will make one album that doesn't represent his qualities. He didn't make use of his potential. I know people are saying it's because RZA didn't provide the beats, but think about it for a minute; he's not performing great tracks (read: there are some songs that are definitely amazing written) that are on the same level as Wu albums. Raekwon actually did show it on Immobilarity, but no one sees this cause they're not listening to lyrics when they hear beats that are 'poor' (some are actually 5/5: Sneakers, The Table) compared to Cuban Linx.
On Phife & Q-Tip: that's very different, cause those were group albums. Performed by A Tribe Called Quest. Only Built For Cuban Linx is a Raekwon presents Wu-Tang kind of album just like Liquid Swords is a GZA presents Wu-Tang album. It's their idea's, their visions and they did come up with the sound. It's not only about getting slaughtered on a record, there's more to a track than that.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
