fuckin' beat down!!!!!!

Inspectah Deck told some dude back in '05 that "I'm not into who did your fucking beat." Surprising stuff, 'cause you could read it as "I don't give a fuck about the production value, all that matters is the lyrics," which would be a real slight to the RZA. I doubt Deck would say that on the record. He probably meant, "I don't care who your fuckin' producer is,'cause I know he'll never touch the Abbot." Or maybe he just felt cranky giving an interview at a studio in Hoboken, N.J. No disrespect to Hoboken, but you expect more after you move millions of units. C'mon, now.

arriving about 4 years late...

... to this crazy fuckin' beef between the Voice and Ol' Dirty Bastard's former manager, Jarred Weisfeld. Wonder how everything sorted itself out. My guess is that Weisfeld and ex-Voice scribe Jamie Lowe settled outta court. No one ever takes this shit down to the fuckin' wire in front of a jury. No one ever has the sack, or the money, or the stamina.

Still waiting for Raekwon to smile on an album cover. Even if he did, he'd still be the baddest motherfucker in the rap game. Anyone else who tries to lay claim to that mantle, even Blaq Poet or Mike D or Nelly, is selling you a total line of shit. Believe it.

Go Pro

Lotta people sound like they slept on Pro Tools, but GZA also sounds like he doesn't give a shit. He sounds that way on tracks and in interviews. So I guess it's all good. And I guess these young critics who don't have any fucking respect can go snort coke in the Brooklyn apartments they can't afford and keep living and breathing and struggling through their miserable fucking lives. I'll do the same on my planet.

Back to Ohio

Someone who read the Tao of Wu told me RZA beat that attempted murder rap in Ohio. No living breathing raging beautiful fucking genius belongs in Ohio, unless it's to visit the International House of Pancakes after a triumphant bender. And I mean triumphant, like on some Socrates philosophies and hypothesis shit. Yeah. Some straight up hemlock-type shit.

High in the Clouds

Great track, and further confirmation that ODB was primed for a major comeback when he died. Plus who the fuck knew Black Rob still existed? Yay life, and hip hip hooray for its constant surprises!

Memba when U-God said....

"Skip the introduction/proceed to lip function." MCs should do that way, way more often. Props to U-God.

Collaboratin' on tracks wit' Bobby Stills

Which Wu member would do a track with Fatlip? I vote for Meth. Similar sense of humor, though John John's never self-deprecating. Still, though -- I fuckin' vote for Method Man. Just take that shit in, okay?

Stayin' on the Ghost tip for a minute

Watched a clip today of Ghostface tellin' an interviewer that he personally witnessed ODB wrap gauze around a certain part of his anatomy before indulging in a certain recreational activity that requires a partner. He didn't mention where they were at the time, but I'm guessing it happened in a pemrissive European capital during the Forever tour. RIP Russell.

Not mad just disappointed

Sad to hear Ghostface canceled his show tonight in Providence. When Wu members play Lupo's you can get shit-faced in the balcony and bob your head all night. Live for that shit.

Cappuccino the Great

Or the Opaque, nah mean? Remember this one:

"Two miles an hour/Cappa do it with the power."

Question remains, do what? In the context of the verse, always sounded like Cappadonna was referencing a getaway car; but he never fully laid things out.

Still, you know exactly what you did the first time you heard that shit -- you went with it.
