Wu Tang Clan – Little Ghetto Boys

My mom was always in my ear as a kid asking “what are you going to do when you grow up!”  I never realized that it meant one day I would have to take responsibility. So you know when I heard Wu’s “Little Ghetto Boys” I was hooked like a mutha. The production is stellar using a Donnie Hathaway sample, over rugged drums. I love the intro with the female cop and Raekwon going at it, if you ask me this is one of Wu’s most slept on tracks.raekwon

Genius/GZA – Liquid Swords

When Gza dropped his classic “Liquid Swords” I was in awe. Wu was already the gods to me and when I heard Gza had a album out I knew I had to hear it. I can still remember seeing the video for the first time, watching rza and gza walk on the clock, genius. The sample was a steady chop accompanied with head nodding drums, which felt like one is in a state of constant agreement. Rza was so raw in Wu’s early days, you can hear the gritty production all over the track.

Some had to snort cocaine to act insane before pete rocked it on.

 

Raekwon – Incarcerated Scarfaces

1995 was a glorious year for the Wu, Raekwon dropped the classic “Only Built For Cuban Linx” and the world took notice. Rae was one of the few artist who could blend the lyrical with the street shit so effortlessly. I remember when tapes were still the shit and niggas was going crazy over the purple tape! Raekwon was a genius for that and peep his brilliance on this classic track that had be wyling in the elevators back in the day.

Ya got guns, Got guns too

Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Brooklyn Zoo

When I first started to pump Wu I was taken back by ODB. Ol  Dirty was unique and I didn’t understand the brilliance of the man. I can blame it on the fact I was young and thought Meth was the god MC (which he was back then circa 95) but I wont . As I grew older I started to appreciate the gritty unorthodox style of Dirty, one of my top tracks from him is the classic “Brooklyn Zoo”. The grittiness in the video is beautiful, come with me back in time to the Brooklyn Zoo.

Gerald K. Barclay’s documentary “Wu: The Story of the Wu-Tang Clan” will air on BET Nov. 13th, 5 days before the DVD hits stores. This documentary will go deep into the Staten Island group showing pain, success, triumph and tragedy. If you a Wu head like myself you cannot pass this up, I know ima be peeping this classic.

I still think BET is the scourge………but c’mon its Wu!
