Default Post Wu Tracks you think are sell out material

wu has done one of the impossible which is to gain mass appeal without making obvious commercial tracks... Forever's first single Triumph didnt even have a hook, just like PYN.. im curious what ppl on here think the corny radio aimed wu tracks are...

based on their group albums only.

Im sure were goin to see alot of "Gravel Pit" mentions, even tho it is a dope ass track.

Dope beat, great verse by Meth, crazy verse by Uey and Ghost, I never understood all the hate on it

Gravel Pit is one of RZA's simplistic beats but still hip hop without soundng r&b watered down like other radio shits... and wu lyrics are never corny...

"dont go against the grain if you cant handle it..."

the horns in the intro & interlude are fuckin ill...

I remember reading an interview where Deck said he hated Gravel Pit, its the worst Wu Tang song ever and he believes Wu lost fans because of the song.

I actually like the song

gravel pit is a smack in the face of those who think the wu went commercial. It's video is an illustration of how other rappers dive into the past to look for new material. It is ingenious just as the song is, and I love every minute of it.

My vote goes for bizarre. U'ey don't belong on Hot 97.

not much really, chrome wheels maybe.

solo work is where wu got greedy, and tried to gain popular appeal by copying other people, or by emulating different styles of hip hop.

You should be getting drunk Sean.

Dont get hate on Gravel Pit. I used to like that song before I heard much Wu cause it was "mainstream" without selling out.

cant think of any, but I dont listen to much of the bullshit.

Another song that some people hate on is Ghostface's "Push" with Missi, although I really like this song too.
