    I'm more open minded and shit now, when i first heard Wu-Tang Forever, i was like, yea theres some fancy things, they didn't feed me that much knowledge, lil bits in between, the thing they did show me was true lyricism.

    He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse."

    yeah, i wanted to know what they were talking about, looked it up, looked up more, and more and more and more. The wu is definetley one of the things that started me on a path of learning. Plus, alot of lines they spit, when you stop to think about them, are deep as shit. Even if its not on some "knowledge" type shit, they can still get you thinking. Last week or so i had this gza line stuck in my head, "i dont waste ink, nigga i think". Word to the genius.

    Yeah. I used to listen to No Limit and strictly West Coast until Wu-Forever came out in 1997. I had Liquid Swords and ODB's cd, and my buddy had Ironman, but we didn't understand what they were saying. My lyrics at the time were just then getting more advanced, more substance, so when I heard Forever, it was like a giant door opened up of infinite knowledge. I'd research some of the things I heard them say on the cd, and knowledge just kept growing.

    I gotta say, when I picked up Bronze Nazareth's album, he reminded me of Killah Priest back in the early Wu-Tang days.
    For real, Priest and The GZA were the cats that made me CRAVE bookstores and libraries.
