Hell Razah & Shyheim- Co-Defendants

When Wu was in its prime no one could even come close, I remember when Wu dropped “The Swarm” vol.1 album and it indeed packed many a gem. One of the standout songs was a track that would be staple in my life called “Co – Defendants” (Shyheim & Hell Razah). The beat is distortion of a man screaming for his life over rugged drums that engage you as you listen more. The song was so raw ,it expressed the feelings of many young youths of that time (like myself). This track always makes me reminisce over my nigga Rob V and how much we would pump this shit, RIP my nigga i miss you.

Spring Water – La the Darkman

La the Darkman released “Heist of the Century” back in 1998 the album featured production from RZA, 4th Disciple, Havoc, Carlos Broady, Dj Muggs & even Raekwon.  The standout track to me on this album was always “Spring Water” which features and is produced by Raekwon, the song samples the classic “Joy & Pain” by Maze & Frankie Beverly.

More than a decade later La is still making moves with his younger brother Willie The Kid who just recently dropped his major-label debut “Absolute Greatness” with help from Dj Drama & the Aphilliates.

9th Prince – Banned from the Radio

9th Prince from the Wu-Tang Clan affiliated group Killarmy came out with “Banned from the Radio” a few years back.  The first thing that grabbed me about this song is the John Lennon sample from his classic song “jealous guy” which is a personal favorite by the way.  Having said that Rza’s younger brother actually does it justice, complimented nicely by the video filmed in Staten Island and in front of the famous “Can it be all so simple” mural near Park Hill. 

Sunz of Man

Sunz of Man dropped their debut “The Last Shall Be First” in 98′  The group consisted of Killah Priest, Prodigal Sunn, Hell Razah and the 60 second Assassin. 

Ann Peebles work has been sampled many times by Wu-Affiliated producers as well as Missy Elliot for her first single “the rain” below I included “Tear your Playhouse down” record is just as dope as the  Sunz of Man version.
