    Default Top 10 Wu-Tang related albums (based solely on lyrics)

    So I've been reading a lot of hip hop lyrics (on RapGenius) and such and was wondering what Wu-Tang albums I should go back through and read fully into the lyrics. So I figured we could make it fun.

    What are your top 10 Wu-Tang related (meaning Killa Beez or side projects included) albums based SOLELY on the lyrics?

    For me in no particular order

    Legend of the Liquid Swords
    Beneath the Surface
    Wu-Tang Forever
    Liquid Swords
    Immobilarity
    Tical 2000
    Immobilarity
    6 Feet Deep
    Heavy Mental
    Last Shall Be First

    Honorable Mentions:
    Enter the Wu Tang
    The W
    Uncontrolled Substance
    OB4CL
    Iron Man

    It's true that he recorded it fast. He never said his lyrics were less because of that. He said in more than one interview that he's way better now than he ever was. GZA's next album will be more lyrical than Pro Tools so on. You can say what you want about his flow being weak on the album or not feeling the production, but lyrically it's second to none.

    How can I take that seriously? You think Kendrick Lamar had 5/5 lyrics on his latest album and GZA's lyrics was 3/5 on Six Direction Of Boxing/Drivin Round

    Hold up, don't start saying shit I've never said. I said that the album was a 4/5 star album and was mad overrated by the masses. The kid can spit his ass off but I've never stated the lyrics were 5/5 so get the fuck outta here with that. 2nd of all Protools was wack, lyrics were dry as fuck, besides 3-4 tracks. Shit was ass. It's up there with Lex Diamond Story/Digital Bullet lyrically.

    gza has a rhyme book. most of his lyrics are written years ago but he just connects lines in different ways.

    its why you hear his same rhymes in different contexts.

    compare

    "Rhyme stone, numerous parts combine
    Strands of heavy metal form the steel arch design
    Fit together seamlessly, everlasting rap
    Heat-pressure generated by a blasted cap"

    with

    "But the strands of heavy metal seem to have no relation...
    Evidence of terrifying threats from heat pressure...
    Fit together seamlessly, til you're all gone"

    so the individual rhymes werent rushed.

    u could say how he connected certain lines together or certain groups of lines together were rushed and i think they definitely were on certain songs such as "7 pounds" but definitely not all his songs.

    his songs on pro tools were more conceptual and the lines connected well. gza sometimes has too many freestyle type songs with no real topic.

    so overall no his lyrics werent rushed.

    his flow was complete shit though.
