i know 8 Diagrams been out forever and me personally i think it's an incredible album.. one of the most well-produced, least rushed album in the '00s if we're talking strictly music. alot of the MC's ripped it hard as well (Ghost, Meth, U-God, Raekwon and GZA was 50/50). In my mp3-player I replaced RZA's boring solo "Sunlight" with the european version of "You Can't Stop Me Now" from Digi Snacks.. it features RZA, Deck and U-God plus zu ninja doing backing vocals. It has a dope shit beore it that i think would fit on 8 Diagrams, on some Cubaj shit.
Sure the beat is very mellow and based around an aucustic guitar and the drums is barely noticeable. on the flp side RZA drops his illest verse on the whole album and even U-God drops by for a ope 8D verse. This definitely sounds better sequend on the LP si U wish RZA would have kept it for 8 D as planned. The ODB noan is als alof hifher here.
