    Because that isn't even close to being true.

    How come The Roots fans ain't bitter. They're consistently dropping good albums and changing with each album. Change is not bad people.

    8 Diagrams might be the last dope Wu album.
    What's so great about the song's structure?
    The problem with Rza, and other hip-hop artists, who try to branch out and incorporate other forms of music is that they always do it in the most boring way possible. They think that just the mere fact that they're using guitars is revolutionary.
    Rza's sound changed a lot from 36 Chambers to Forever, then it changed further with the Bobby Digital sound. Change isn't the issue. Making tepid music is.

    I don't like "The Heart Gently Weeps."

    Changing "guitar" to "heart" is stupid. Erikah's hook is lame. And Raekwon sounds like so fucking bored. I can't believe they kept his verse.

    Ghostface's verse is great, and Meth does his thing, but it's not as good as the 40 people who worked on it thought it was going to be.

    It's not even a top 5 song on 8 Diagrams.

    Rza is a fucking hip hop producer that's all. He should stop trying to be a dude he couldn't be. He never stop trying to produce great music but constantly fails. tell Rza Bono won't try to produce hip hop songs cuz he knows he can't. You know what I mean ? Dre or other motherfuckers produce hip hop that's all. They know their own limits. At the beginning he knew exactly what his soldiers needed so they gave their best. He can't reinvent the wheel. Wu generals come from the streets. If he wants to do other shit he must create a new group. "the heart gently weeps" sucks.
