Default Underrated GZA verse from Iron Flag

I'm not talking about his mindblowing verse on Back In The Game but about Babies. Extremely clever shit:

You're just worms in the worst part of the apple that's rotten
You squirm and you turn from the right, still plottin
All slimy cause you stay grimy, petty crimey cat
You sometime me, don't need to remind me about
Livin in the core, with the scramblers in front of the store
The bum holdin the door, the mugginExplaing no one saw
We played ball in the alley where dope was shot raw
And the school they kept flawed, plus the lowest test scores
Small percentage determined to strengthen they position
Transformation from critical to, stable condition
But it still be obstacles on niggas that's optical
Watchin you like salt-water sharks that's tropical
The money was the root and it's the instinct to make it
With they pockets and fridge naked, many aim to take it
Whether - hold up, set up, stabbin or a wet up
Just to know it was the kid next door fizzucked your head up
Once he fell short, frequently visit the courts
And for some, another way out, is music and sports
That's why I, keep the rhyme just as fly as a shot
That won the championship, with just oh on the clock

^ it deserves to be. there's no need for trackmasters production, and who the fuck is nick 'fury' loftin? or the better question is what is he doing producing on a wtc album?

the back in the game verse is great tho. so is the dashing verse

I think I read RZA say that Nick Fury guy used to sell weed or suttin. Either way his beat was weak and generic. The Trackmasters beat was decent I thought. GZA was on point on the few tracks he was on. This is their weakest album though since I have to pick one. Peace

Agreed, didn't like Iron Flag that much either. Still a ok release but personally I think it's their worst mostly because of the production. I heard something like they had to pay a huge sum of cash for that Back In The Game trash beat and there were some problems about that.

Niggas will hate just because it was trackmasters, if it said true master y'all would force yourselves to like it. That track was hot. Gza's verse on back in the game was WOW. But Deck & Rae owned that LP. and yes that Gza verse posted is fire. Legend of The Liquid Swords was a dope follow up to this.

regardless of the quality of the album, the verse is dope...

every Gza verse on that album is fire ("from dark matter to the big crunch/ the vocals came in a bunch without one punch") just like most Gza verses before his flow/delivery started lacking energy


having said that, his verse on Babies is a standout for sure, that whole track is classic, Ghost also spins a crazy story with verbal flavor


"The middle of a bathroom, they find an old lady
No clothes,
Half of her tongue, ear missing
the killer had to be mad smart he wore mittens
Even tho her leg was bitten
Crackheads point the finger at De-tective Slick Morris Gittens"


if it's underrated it's only cuz of the album it's on

Everybody knows GZA is the best lyrical rapper in Wu and my Top ever next to Killah Priest.
He never gives a weak verse

Personally not hating on it because of Trackmasters, cause I do like some of their early work in the 90s like The Message and Affirmative Action from It Was Written. I just thought Back In The Game beat was really horrible, doesn't matter to me if it's RZA, True Master or Trackmasters. I do think there are people who are hating on it because it's them producing. I just think the sample game and drums were really corny.
