    Default Mantis - Track Review


    RZA as Bobby Digital in Stereo

    Masta Killa



    Welcome back to the temple of hip-hop and Sword Kempo
    Lyrical rhyme nympho, b-boy Bob Digital
    Diamond crystal ring solid gold bone rituals
    We be the humble most calmest individuals
    Hard to spot microdots, we Sasquatch
    Stomp MC's, third eye Cyclops laser beam shots
    being fired once the father get raised up
    We John Blaze up, abrasive heat, from the phaser gun
    Never left for a stun dun, Atilla the Hun
    type Killa Park Hilla, eighteen wheeler
    Mack's in the truck lanes, from the rugged grains
    of Shaolin' soil, the red wolves be prowlin'
    Howlin' over the shit that got the whole world bowin'
    We spoiled, one thousand swordsmen
    One thousand recordings, one thousand Wu stores and
    One thousand rap tours and global insurance
    Not your everyday occurrence
    My rhyme torments MC's with the fear of God
    You'll be cursed like Herod, and struck by the iron rod

    Hellz Wind Staff, the wrath of Black Titans
    Niggaz battlin', sword swingin'
    Cutthroat women, whirlwind given save the children
    Escape the poverty for livin', let live
    Die by the mic, shatter skills by night

    [kung fu sample]

    Man-Mantis style isn't easy to learn
    A mantis is small, but powerful
    With it's arms, it can lift up many times it's own weight

    (Masta Killa)

    On behalf of the Wu-Tang Clan I'll display the Hong Kong
    Shaolin King Kong poems, slaps niggaz in half from Kwan'tan
    Ten tigers scratch like Allah Math, the Hellz Wind Staff
    Watch the 8 Diagram strike the diaphragm
    Pierced lung, many flung, tongue double-edged
    sound the drum, here I come as predicted
    Holdin' the raw seal, all heads kneel
    7th Degree black mic skill is ill
    Listen to the guns holler, swallow the shell
    East New York terrorist, break fool to this
    Madness, crazy low-hand grabs the mic stand
    Smooth as water, spat Seven Seas you've not yet mastered
    Breathe and lungs wheeze, Earth kills
    I'm wreckin MC's, blood spills, metal is round
    The piercing sound of silence deafens ears
    Fires fierce, wood sharp eagle claw tears
    tree from bark, hard to maintain control
    When you leakin' I stand with the strength of Jobe
    and hold pressure that'll bust your head, while I'm teachin'
    civilization, one havin' Knowledge
    Wisdom Understanding, culture refinement
    Knowledge savage in pursuit of happiness
    Thunderous mantis, all chant this

    One of my all time favs, Bobby lost his mind on this one!
    Classic Wu shit
    "Borough hopping, copping bricks, bags, burners and kicks City slickers, circling the strip, working them tricks"
    -Rebel INS the GREAT!!!
