Has anyone else noticed this or am I the only one..
    I remember masta killa doing this ,especially on the " asassinations day" track.and I remember some interview years ago where GZA mentioned the S was symbolic to the swush of the liquid sword!

    Yeah foreal and I always thought that KP kinda sounded like biggy on the " SCIENCE PROJECTS" track,at the beginining where he says live my life,live my life!! I use to go as deep to think did he do that intentionally ,as if the priest channeling biggies spirit on track lol
