Default Mantis - Track Review

Mantis

RZA as Bobby Digital in Stereo
1998


RZA
Masta Killa
Tekitha


RZA




(RZA)

Welcome back to the temple of hip-hop and Sword Kempo
Lyrical rhyme nympho, b-boy Bob Digital
Diamond crystal ring solid gold bone rituals
We be the humble most calmest individuals
Hard to spot microdots, we Sasquatch
Stomp MC's, third eye Cyclops laser beam shots
being fired once the father get raised up
We John Blaze up, abrasive heat, from the phaser gun
Never left for a stun dun, Atilla the Hun
type Killa Park Hilla, eighteen wheeler
Mack's in the truck lanes, from the rugged grains
of Shaolin' soil, the red wolves be prowlin'
Howlin' over the shit that got the whole world bowin'
We spoiled, one thousand swordsmen
One thousand recordings, one thousand Wu stores and
One thousand rap tours and global insurance
Not your everyday occurrence
My rhyme torments MC's with the fear of God
You'll be cursed like Herod, and struck by the iron rod
Ticka-ticka-ticka-ticka-ticka-ticka-POW

(Tekitha)
Hellz Wind Staff, the wrath of Black Titans
Niggaz battlin', sword swingin'
Cutthroat women, whirlwind given save the children
Escape the poverty for livin', let live
Die by the mic, shatter skills by night

[kung fu sample]

Man-Mantis style isn't easy to learn
A mantis is small, but powerful
With it's arms, it can lift up many times it's own weight

(Masta Killa)

On behalf of the Wu-Tang Clan I'll display the Hong Kong
Shaolin King Kong poems, slaps niggaz in half from Kwan'tan
Ten tigers scratch like Allah Math, the Hellz Wind Staff
Watch the 8 Diagram strike the diaphragm
Pierced lung, many flung, tongue double-edged
sound the drum, here I come as predicted
Holdin' the raw seal, all heads kneel
7th Degree black mic skill is ill
Listen to the guns holler, swallow the shell
East New York terrorist, break fool to this
Madness, crazy low-hand grabs the mic stand
Smooth as water, spat Seven Seas you've not yet mastered
Breathe and lungs wheeze, Earth kills
I'm wreckin MC's, blood spills, metal is round
The piercing sound of silence deafens ears
Fires fierce, wood sharp eagle claw tears
tree from bark, hard to maintain control
When you leakin' I stand with the strength of Jobe
and hold pressure that'll bust your head, while I'm teachin'
civilization, one havin' Knowledge
Wisdom Understanding, culture refinement
Knowledge savage in pursuit of happiness
Thunderous mantis, all chant this
