rza then talked about how nas was the first guy to write a story as a letter. and that this influenced 'stan'.

I remember that interview with Allhiphop I think. He said this actually in more interviews, he always mentions Labels when he's talking about GZA. Nas was superior to MC Crackhead but he was influenced by it for sure.

"Killah Hills" might have my favorite line: "...even underwent surgery / they said his pirate limp gave him away / as the Feds rushed 'em comin' through US Customs"

or.. "He set bombs in bottles of champagne / so when niggas popped the corks, niggas lost half their brains"

OR.. "cemetery's packed / of niggas who think 'it ain't like that'" makes me laugh


if you want to talk about best GZA verse, I'd have to exclude all of Liquid Swords and look only at guest appearances. "Silverbacks" is an incredible verse.

I never paid much attention to that one. It's incredible how he keeps mentioning things about DICE in a different way and is witty with it. If he's talking about dice you know there's going to be a double entendre there.

here's the plan minimum for the hit , two hundred grand
Half time at the game blastin niggaz out the stands
The sharp-shooters hit the prosecutor, judges are sent

u can see the obvious ones like 'half time' 'stands' and 'game' but also ones like a 'smash hit' can b a big tackle (its call the way 'smash hit' fits both the singer and american football extended metaphors) and in american football i think a shooter is another name 4 a gunner.
Sammy the Bull Gravano was the guy that ratted out John Gotti, hence the "Smash hit like Sammy Gravano" cause he was singing on the witness stand

my favourite GZA line of all time is real simple:
"Under the Subway waiting the train to make noise, so I can blast the nigga and his boys"

You witness the rhyme, nothin but dimes
The eightball murder verse, freestyle or rehearsed
I wreck emcees whether I'm last or first
What, what, what, what, hazardous dart
Visual long forgotten art
That fell apart, til the blood ran from the heart
Pump through the street, Rza make re-break beats
Packed seats, rapid fire raps at off track meets
And an arm tank, high rank, heavy metal shank
Blow 'em off the plank when they ships approach the bank
Wu niggas rollin, throwin the first rap slogan
Heroes of Hogan, shot up the military clothin'
Quickly blow up, rolled up in rappers like pennies
My brother stack tracks on the behalf of many
With the wisdom, power of, science from experts


- conditioner
