    Default Fish - Track Review

    Fish

    Ironman
    1996


    Ghostface Killah
    Cappadonna
    Raekwon

    True Master




    [Intro]

    (sample from Crying Freeman, *Raekwon)

    *hey yo*, You know they're killers themselves,
    *hey, hey, hey, 46*
    People die for them. You know, guys that I fooled with were killers themselves *how you
    want it?, how you want it? stop that!, stop that!*
    These are the men who lead the crime families of America. I control 26,000
    men. Except for dope, we operate in all aspects of organized crime. And if
    there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that drugs destroy your mind. And destroy
    your home. In the end it'll only lead our country into ruin

    (Ghostface Killah)

    We eat fish, tossed salads and make rap ballads
    The biochemical slang lord'll throw the arrows in the dope fiend
    Vocal chords switch laser beams my triple sevens
    Broke the slot machines out in Queens, Grey Poupon is rebel on rap
    Smack on, swing like batons, most want niggas smoked like Hilshire Farms
    Check the gun we sew, underneath my shoe lies the tap
    That attract bow-legged bitches with wide horse gaps
    In steel mills iron he'll smoke the blow on Duns
    You run heroins, Primatine mist is afraid of my lungs
    Turn my channel, it'll blow your whole bench off the panel
    Like 80 roman candles that backfired then slammed you
    Every day is like a video shoot, check this shit
    I take you back to Playboy, stash guns and whips
    Picture afro, big shish kebobs and daishikis
    1000 civil marched blazed their fists in early sixties

    (Cappadonna)

    Now check this one, you must have been stupid to miss this one
    'Donna shogunnin' flip a ton of fashion
    Destination be the cash when I step past one
    Don't make me blast one, I'm cold like eskimo flow
    Cappadonna stay chillin' take shots of penicillin
    Clean out and let the steam out, she fiend to blow out
    But I'm equipped with mad white, Morris The Rap got nine lives
    I'll take a few hundred-thousand dollar dives
    and then I still never go down
    Until the last round I shine,
    when RZA do his thing motherfucka, I'ma do mine

    (Raekwon)

    Now, where I come from cats be carryin' Marryin' drug money
    Fuck up your wife, get four to life, claim we handling
    Midtown niggas scramblin', moving examine the fly shit
    Plus quick to buy shit Chef, yeah, you know the whole gods
    Asterick, Fidel Castro suits plus depositin' cash rule big time
    Play it like Canadian wine, RZA 's the rhyme now, the sacredness of
    one's true mind Now let's get colorful like money green
    High roller coaster, Sosa, million dollar nigga roaster
    Yeah, GOD, be havin' my whole steez laced
    now let's wrap our tapes, connect dots
    aim Glocks train style, Figaro fly jewel
    Tri-color Cubans swervin we'll pow with Germans in Suburbans
    24 niggas with vests's on, my own restaurant
    Dons sendin' my sons membership forms
    They still gettin' this paper scraper
    Fake haters from Jamaica, wizards be passin like Lakers
    And if you comin' from Lex, Lewis, Rich Liberace
    Fetus style and block your goals like hockey....

    One of my favourite tracks off of Ironman. The way Ghost sets it off is pure dopeness and the energy is carried all the way through by Rae and Cappa. I always hear people talk about this track as it was a weak link on Ironman, but i completely disagree. In my opinion this track could have fit nicely on Supreme Clientele, as it carries a similar vibe to Apollo Kids

    How anyone can give this track lower than 4 is beyond me...the beat has an atmosphere to it. Ghosts "We Eat Fish" is one of the best opening lines on any wu song ever.

    I love this; it reminds me of his verse on Projects from Wu Tang Forever.

    I agree completely. The way the beat comes in after the intro is amazing and the opening line from all three of them fit the whole atmosphere of the song.

    Until I heard heaterz this was my fav Wu song

    4 star banger. Only thing keeping it from a classic is Rae's less than amazing verse. Ghost and Cappa hold the fort.
