    I can't figure out who takes this track - masta, u-god, ghost or street ?

    I also like how gza jumps on the track with a few bars and then disappears.


    Overall this joint is one of the most creative from the wu, with the back and forth between all the m.c's.

    One of my favorite Wu joints. It's almost as if they were all just chillin burnin trees, while passing around a notepad and vibing off each other's bars. The way GZA appears for 2 bars then vanishes after MK and U-God trade off bars perfectly shows the Voltron formation in effect, and how left field Wu was in comparison to most everything else that was dropping at the time.

    Classic shit!! Only for Wu fans I guess... ppl who never liked Wu-Tang much don't love this song

    Further proof that Wu owned NY and the "Golden Era"
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    awesome track but it wouldnt make my top 20.
    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)

    ^ exactly

    The beat is repetitive and the mix is extremely off. Still great.

    But isn't that what makes early Wu so great? The mix is grimy as hell. You've got members flying in and out all over the place, levels jumping all over the place, creating that real randomized, basement feel. If levels were perfect and equal, I don't think the track would have gone off as well cause the feeling would have been different.

    love the MK intro shouting out the generals. and like how GZA managed to squeeze in 2 bars....: "Fifty caliber street sweeper
    Shots from Shaolin that go to Masapeaqua." lol
