Default The Soul Controller - Track Review

The Soul Controller

Ironman
1996

Ghostface Killah
The Force M.D.'s


RZA




[Chorus]

(The Force MD's)

It's been a long, long, a long time coming
A change gon' come

(Ghostface Killah)

Yo, yo, these streets got me backed down, how can I escape?
How can I survive without bubblin' weight?
It's prepared for the stand off, what you hand off?
That white rock, and then give birth to a knot
Your biggest dream was to rock an eight-fifty and Beam
You and your Gods buy a crib in the white part of Queens
But at the same time, niggas on the block is ill
Some'll rock you to sleep, hap, for selling cross pills
Being watched all day like enemy's prey
Faces you never seen before is in your hallway
Brothers you knew for years is mad pussy and scared
Back in the days U.F.O.'s couldn't walk up in here
It's time to motor, travel like a foul order
Clear my head, stay sober, The Soul Controller

[Chorus]

(The Force MD's)

It's been a long, long, a long time coming
A change gon' come, oh, yes it will
Said I'm too tired of livin'
But I'm, but I'm afraid to die
Cause I don't know what's up there
In that great big ol' sky

(Ghostface Killah, *The Force MD's*)

Sink deep into the fog, big buffalo large
Taj Mahal just got banked, shanked for eighty Gods
It's hard to keep up, with these Keons, ya smoke dust
In the U.S. Mint they want to rock the place and call the rush
For these shameless niggas armed with cherry-red Balley's
On the twenty-fifth, everybody rich is gettin' married
Killed for power beans, he brother own schools in Medina
Vaseline lips is cracked because they all had dreams
They overdue, these Gods own a Mosque in Peru
Tropical trees and weeds where they grew bamboo
Olympic minds quick flash like a Nikkon
A hundred shares short to own Nissan
Watch em get they feast on
Royal blue lies inside the eyes of heaven
Curse the head, who speak foul and jinx number seven *seven*
Clear my head and stay sober, The Soul Controller
*A, a, a long time comin'*
..stay sober, The Soul Controller

[Chorus]

Ohhh yeah.. a change gon come
Wooo, yes it will

(Ghostface Killah)

Yo, yo, we sit and play the wall like nine super heroes
Lay for the Manchuz and hear shots in stereo
The kid's nice, warnin' you twice, run your garments
Jet to Providence, switch up and back down your Parliament
Ironman is laced with a plate in the dome piece
Go off in airports, biographies, prophecies
Watch me set it, real Keons hold down the desert
And walk with a famous name like Supreme Magnetic
Carbon copy, I love my Akai snare choppy
Beloxi off of Funky Penguin with wax poppy on instrumentals
Niggas get lost like S.S. Minnows, turned down like rentals
Keep gold around the denim

[Chorus]

(The Force MD's)

A change gon' come, yes it will
It's been a long, long, a long time coming
A change gon' come, woo, yes it will
Said I'm so, tired of living, woo ooh
But I'm, but I'm afraid to die, woo yeah
Cause I don't know what's up there
In that great, big ol' sky, oh my, oh my, oh my
It's been a long, long time, a long time coming
Change gonna come, woo, yes it will

(Carlito's Way Movie Sample)

Sorry boys..
All the stitches in the world can't sew me together again
Lay down.. lay down
Gonna stretch me out in Fernandez Funeral home on hun and ninth street
Always knew I'd make a stop there
But a lot later than a whole gang of people thought
Last of the Mo-ricans..
Well, maybe not the last..
Can't come with me on this trip though
Gettin' the shakes now
Last call for drinks
Bar's closin' down
The Sun's out
Where we goin' for breakfast?
Don't wanna go far
Rough night
I'm tired, baby
I'm tired

(The Usual Suspects Movie Sample)

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled
Was convincing the world he didn't exist
..and like that.. he's gone!

I love this shit when I'm baked. The echo on the vocals makes it sound confined somehow.

Man - this track almost drove me insane because I ripoped acopy of Ironman our local library had onto tape. Laters - I knew there was this amazing track with Usual suspects dialogue but I couldn't find it anywhere. Fantastic

Yes Nissan is there, your looking at the wrong line, he says Nikkon in the line above.

super complex beat by the rza and complex rhymes by ghostface. when i first heard this joint in like middle school the first thing i thought was ghost (and rza) threw a whole lot of shit into this song... like 3 samples and sounds, force md's, 2 movie samples.. shit is classic.
