This is what RZA says....

For a long time, everyone assumed that he's just using the term "Suzette" generically, just to mean any old ho. But I actually do remember a girl named Suzette from Shaolin. And I do think she got fucked alot.

"the liquid soluble that made up the chemistry

too many quotables... GZA kills whole albums with one liners...lol a few that i like atm are :

"I Flow like the blood on a murder scene"

"Just consider the unparallel in damage of a natural disaster thats impossible to manage"

"They said his Pirate-Limp gave him away as The Feds rushed him comin through US Customs"

"So we attack this and grab all within reach
Throw scrap back to niggaz perfect your own speech
Shit copper, it aint worth the mic stands
Used by backup singers in Atlantic City Bands"

"you couldnt add it up, if you mastered addition !!!"

i studied a lot of his lines. almost every single one is his best. i think hes greatest lyricist by far. i think a very underrated line by him is

'We draw hit after hit from a royal flush menu
While the dealer promoted the full house venue'

and also

'To check fault in oneself is pure loveliness
You break the mirror that remind you of your ugliness'

'To be blunt, the beef was cooked up like coke goods'-people usually get the metaphor with how beef is used to mean both food and and also it means two people who have a disagreement but most people don't notice the double meaning of blunt. it can mean both to be curt and it's connected with 'coke goods' cuz blunts(marijuana) and coke are both kinds of drugs. u see with gza u have to look deeper. i'll show u how deep he goes.






"It's like a puzzle, all works are like puzzles. Thousands of pieces in a box, and you know how long it takes to put a puzzle together. Each piece, they all help each other, they all connect, they have to be put in the right place and it all makes a picture. I'll have shit on this page, it'll just be two or three lines. I'll have a beginning on this page, or something over here. We were on the road one day, on tour, a couple of years before I did my album. Somethin was on the radio and we went through a tunnel, and the radio went off. I was like, 'So deep it's picked up on radios in tunnels.' At that time you couldn't get shit in tunnels, now you can. That was like one piece of that puzzle.

"See, and I'm humble with it. It's like the ni**a that bought the Marc McGuire ball, he gonna hold on to it. So I held on to it, I wasn't too eager to throw it on anything. I gotta have another piece of that puzzle to go with it. So I said, 'came through with the Wu, slid off on the DL/ low key like sea shells/ I rock these bells, now come aboard,' it's like a train. 'Come aboard, it's Medina bound,' Medina's Brooklyn, Brooklyn bound. 'It's a whole different sound/ a wide entrance, small exit like a funnel/ everything relate, so deep it's picked up on radios in tunnels.' Everything relates - come on board, it's Medina bound. It's a wide entrance - I'm lettin' ni**as in. Everything is like pieces, just like when I say, 'My rhyme great gross weight vehicle combination.' Anybody who has a license and is familiar with it, that's a certain term, Gross Weight Vehicle Combination, for trucks. But I said, 'my rhyme great gross weight vehicle combination/ is too heavy for the Chevys that's chased out the station.'

I'm talkin' 'bout Chevy, car, then I say station, what kind of station? So I say, 'Double edged was the guillotine that beheaded it/ gassed up, fuckin' with some regular unleaded shit.' He's in the station. Everything relates. but now I'm talkin' about guillotines, so I say, 'heads roll,' cause we took heads off, 'heads roll on hillsides behind ropes/ that bind in, now x marks the spot on the scope.' See, now that line right there is way deeper than muhfuckas. I'm talkin' about 'heads roll on hillsides behind ropes,' I'm takin' it back to Europe, Caucus Mountains, and Turkish soldiers who was guardin' the mountain when beasts tried to run out the cages, they took the head. Europe, 'eu' means hill side, and rope means the rope to bind in. That shit is just, you have to be dealin' with what I'm dealin' with to know what I'm talkin' about. The way it's put, only certain people will know or appreciate. Everything relates."

Off "Silverbacks":

I went from the slums of Hell to paradise in Heaven
From a sling-shot to a wall of mac 11's
I drank with the Devil and ate with the Reverand
We talked numbers and I told 'em, that mine was 7
The total amount of hits, behind the collapsed building
That had exploded in a frenzy of killings
Bodies lay near tons of twisted metal
Of a structure and atomic force, it leveled
From the tale of the tape, the product failed in comparison
The weight, the height, the reach, was not a year within
Sight, the significant, difference was the ammo
Wrecking y'all individuals and their man know
Second by second, heat blazed through the night
Leaving a dazzling array of neon lights
The primary reason of mission for them spitting
The firing kept hitting, them dust, they kept sipping
But the informants x-rays gave off electrons
Within a few next days, entire cess gone
Prenticle percisions used to remove the eyelids
Those responsible for my brothers with high bids
Life in the hood is an award winning film
Lived ut by savages who can't escape the realm
A place where the young meet and greet with guns
In the park they interrupt the pure innocent fun
