A banger, but not a classic, near to superior

I'm waiting for dinner so why not do a review. Plus I haven't reviewed in a while.

I would like to say when I first got this I was like...This shit not nothing special, but as time went on I was starting to like this album more and more...

1. Lucci
I like this track, nice opening track for an album. It's a banger, especially in ya car. Nice bass and the beat is hot. LA is spitting real nice on it, kinda an album preview. 4.5/5
2. Shine
This is an ok track, it kinda got annoying after awhile though. Beat isn't all that great even though the lyrics are dope, it's not enough to stop me from skipping the track. 3.5/5
3. City Lights
I first heard this track on a mixtape, I like this shit. LA is painting a nice picture right here,showing that he can step up to the plate. The Beat complements LA real well. 4.5/5
4. What Thugs Do
Mediocore. I never liked this track at all. The beat is wack so is the hook too. 3/5
5. Heist of the Century
I expected better, the beat isn't what I expected. LA and Sin are ripping it, but I would've preferred a different beat. It's still a banger though. 4/5
6. Fifth Disciple
This sounds like some classic Wu shit. Beat is classic, LA is on some other shit "It's surprising, how I throw lines like Joe Theisman / Franchisin, then pose for the rap Heisman" WHoaaa...Short and Sweet 5/5
7. Now Y
This shit is nice, straight up east coast street shit. La has a voice that when he projects his voice it sounds real fluent. Beat is real dope. 4.5/5
8. Spring Water
Maybe cause this a Raekwon featured track, but this is hot to me. Real smooth track. Beat is nice and smooth. A nice video for it also. 4.5/5
9. 4 Souls
I love this, it's like they both in the booth spitting dartz battling it out with each other, beat is crazy nice too. The guy Shotti isn't wack either. 5/5
10. Street Life
La is going off on here, let me see "Niggas can't afford this, my queens look gorgeous, I think eating swordfish, Surrounded by 20 men cold-blooded as a amphibian,In the Benz puffing trees straight from the Caribbean, it's Darkman" That shit was crazy....Tekitha is nice on the hook. Beat is something new to me. 5/5
11. Love
I like this track, some deep shit spoken by LA "I look into ya eyes and get hard" I can feel him on that tip, that's how I felt about someone before..lol. It's all good though. 4.5/5
12. Figaro Chain
LA may murder Havoc on the lyrical tip, But Havoc Murders this beat...I love how the beat just rides out, I remember playing this track in the summer nights pulling off when the light turns green as the beat rides out...classic 5/5
13. Polluted Wisdom
I like this shit, great storytelling, Rza beat is real nice, I can imagine this shit in my head clearly... 4.5/5
14. Gun Rule
La is keeping it raw, nothing else to say... 5/5
15. Element of Surprise
Uhhhh it's an ok track. Masta Killa has the best verse. I'm not feeling U-God on this one, and the beat is kinda annoying... 3.5/5
16. Az the World Turnz
For you Raekwon haters Eat a Dick. They both spitting about ligfe and shit, smething calm and smooth to chill out to. 5/5
17. Wu-Blood Kin
I love this track this is some of the best shit I heard 12 o clock spit, LA is still painting vivid pictures with ease, I love ghost on the hook. 5/5
18. I Want It All
Nice ride out beat right here with the sun going down, Very smooth laid back beat, nice outro...4.5/5

One thing I don't like about this album, is that damn talking at the end of some of the tracks, really don't feel like sitting through all that for the next track.
Beats: 4.5/5
Lyrics: 5/5
Overall: 4.5/5 Superior ****Certified Wu-Classic****

i have to sit down and give this a full review one day but for me the highlights are the 2 4th Disciple classics..


Track 11 called Love....the beat just puts me into another zone..

and of course Element of Surprise..


4th Disciple's gotta be one of the most underrated, unknown yet incredible producers in hip hop history...

Had to shoot some of my babies with my phone. The Heist CD and LP, and the red vinyl in front of them is a limited edition Az The World Turnz 12" promo.

I also got the What Thugs Do 12" (b/w Wu Bloodkin).










You may spot the trim, got three sets of LP/CD on the wall. Line-up changing, right now Heist, GAR and Wu-Chronicles vol. 1. They doesn't impress anyone, but as I said they're my babies

Not to mention the fact that La The Darkman blacks out and kills Havoc's beat & rhymes.

Co-Sign...Whats up silencer.
All of my mates who aren't really into Wu go deep about 4th Disciple...
I made a CD of most of his beats and my mate said he is clearly 1 of the best
Producers ever.

"Dangerous Minds" was probabally the 1st 4th beat I ever heard !!!!!!!!

Alo I gotta shout out "Shine" & "Gun Rule"
Great album...
Patiently waiting for another 1.........
