Timeless CLASSIC… Let me get 1994′s “Bring the Pain” too…
You beat me to it MBE 18, Hahaha….
Best multiple personalities rapper ever.
Slam everyday it’s like you guys have invaded my ipod, I love how your layup lines always are in sync with my tastes.
Enter The 36 Chambers was and still is one of the greatest hip-hop albums of ALL TIME!!! I miss the golden hip-hop era (i.e. the 90′s)
Oops, I was thinking Redman when I made that post…weird. Anyways, co-sign the 90′s being the golden era of hip hop. Did y’all see MC Ren saying John Singleton should direct the biopic on NWA? I so agree with that. Click my name in case you didn’t read about it.
Damnit, I’ma have this song stuck in my head all day now.
Not a bad thing, I guess.
Not nearly as bad as having that wack Drake song “It’s Over” stuck in my head after every time I fire up that NBA 2k11.
Meth is the truth. His style was/is just ridiculous … And I always wanted to rock that “fake eye” he had in the “All I Need” video with Mary J. Blige. Homie made it look smooth in a gutter way. Ha ha ha …
all day with this jam
@BlackStar – I remember watching that video and begging my dad to buy me those Fila Grant Hill kicks Meth was rocking in that vid, but they were too expensive for my dad at the time. I was like 11 at the time. Lol
Those Grant Hill kicks were pretty dope. Can’t even front.
Nostalgia is a funny thing
Wish we couldve gotten somethin off of Tical instead though. Mr Sandmans prolly my favorite Meth song. That beat is hauntin
As much as I loved Meth and the Wu, Tical was the most overrated album of everyone’s debut in the Wu. It had like 4 or 5 dope tracks. Everything else, eh. Best solo albums go like this: 1. Raekwon (Cuban Linx), 2. GhostFace (Ironman), 3.GZA (Liquid Swords. I know it wasn’t his debut, but this was when Wu was holding crazy weight), 4. Meth (Tical), 5. Old Dirty Bastard (Return…). After that we had lackluster solo albums from everyone else. Inspectah Deck was theeeee most disappointing. Had such high hopes for that album. Bobby Digital was cool, but apparently, it was Bobby Digital and not RZA.
For me it was 1. Raekwon, 2. GZA, 3. Ghostface, 4. ODB, 5. Meth
Other than “Bring the Pain”, “What the Blood Clot” “PLO Style” and “All I Need” there really weren’t many memorable tracks on Tical for me.
“Meth vs. Chef” was the best song on Tical. RZA used to make the Wu members battle each other for beats–I’m not sure if that was just a freestyle he recorded or if they planned it like that afterward, but still pretty cool.
1. Liquid Swords
2. Only Built
4. Return of the 36 Chambers
5. No Said Date – Masta Killa’s debut.
It’s really a toss-up between Liquid Swords and Built for Cuban Linx though. Raekwon is possibly the best rapper out of Wu-Tang, but he usually doesn’t get listed as #1 because he’s way too street. ODB is probably the most popular.
Liquid Swords is a special album to me, but if I’m being objective I might have to put Cuban Linx at the top.
@ Enigmatic – Lol … I feel you man.
@Enigmatic, don’t forget Meth vs. Chef and Mr. Sandman. One of my homies used to love throwing on Mr. Sandman every single time he was f*cking some chick.
Ok all y’all are buggin
2. The purple tape
3. Cappa donna
