A.k.a which is the GOAT Wu solo joint?

I gotta go with Liquid Swords that shit is too epic and gots to be in my Top 5 ever. RZA set the mood perfectly that shit sounded like a movie and GZA was on some other shit lyrically pllus all the guest appearances (Deck, Ghost, Meth, Killah Priest) killed it Meth even destroyed the host on Shadowboxin.

Close call though all of these three are undisputed classics.

1. LS
2. OBFCL
3. SC

    Liquid Swords. hands down. I love OB4CL and SC but besides Ironman no wu solo can fuck with Liquid Swords. That album is top to bottom 100% advanced hip hop. Perfect execution. no one in the history of hip hop has made album as perfect and coheisve as liquid swords. GZA does more than go in on liquid swords i cant even find a hypebeast word for where GZA was at lyrically. Mindblowing would seem cheesy to say about every track on this album. He did his fucking thing. Liquid Swords is my all time favorite song ever period.the hook is infectious. i never heard nothing like it before. dope dope dope beat. i can listen to the instrumental for the rest of my life. dope rhymes. that clock radio speaker top 5 battle line. GZA caught wreck on that shit i love that song. Duel of the iron mic deck and masta killa held they own. sometimes i say deck got gza but i listen to gza verse. incredible song. He took living in the world today to the noose and killed that shit. that song made me understand what rhyming is all about. 2 stellar verses that shaped my life as a teen. yeah its that serious. gold could be a screen play. you feel like you right there at that meeting where GZA gotta peel them 2 niggas cap back. the chorus basically sums up the dark intent of the drug game. the only ballerific line in that song is when he mentioned about dude promising his mom mad rooms and she died and put 100k in her tomb. this aint no RD/LAD im jumping over tables shooting 360 like mission impossible 3 this is criminology and mafioso at its most brilliant. same thing with cold world. back to the motherfuckin spot on lexington classic line. shoot me if im wrong. deck backdoored and killed that shit. vivid crime rhymes. if you gonna rap mafioso shit please be descriptive like gold and cold world. labels sweep the grime away for a second and show you gza killing it his wordplay. tommy aint my motherfuckin boy. another classic hip hop phrase. we just halfway through the album and you already got your money/minds worth but it aint over. that guitar riff does nothing but hype niggas up on 4th chamber. ghost ripped that shit out the frame. watch out for haiti bitches i heard they throw hex. method man killed shadowboxing. got gza on his own track. but the wu aint sensitive niggas that go back and rerecord verses take niggas off songs. that rza interlude is funny don rodweegez fom the bwonx. killa hill 10304 way ahead of its time. yall already know the lnes im speaking on. niggas quick to throw up 9/11 wiki facts in the social room but forget gza open niggas mind about jihad exteremissts back in 95. this song plus all the nwo/illuminati talk on wu tang forever place my niggas on a higher social conciouness level than alot of them rappers in the mid 90s. thats why i love wu tang. they taught me more than i learned in school. but back to ls. yeah killah hills 10304 dope track eerie alliterations in that song. wu too advanced for niggas. investigative reports ghost ripped another track out the box. more crazy quotables that stick out. rednecks be hanging big niggas down in memphis let me know as southerner wu was bleeding for the black man worldwide instead of being east coast eltists. swordsman is my 2nd favorite track off liquid swords. that song made me try to figure out the hidden jewels he rapped and thats how i started getting in to nge, noi , mst, black disciples literature. gotcha back makes the album close out grimey. criminals robbin innocent motherfuckers everytime. gza mopped the floor with that beat. BIBLE was a dope killah priest solo. i never heard it until 96 because i had the LS vinyl (which just got re released 2 months ago. i bought 2 copies keeping them sealed yall need to go buy history) but the first time i heard it i was blown away. just when you think the album was a closed book priest opens it back up and goes innnnnnn on BIBLE. only real wu niggas went and did they homework after hearing BIBLE. nothing but that world knowledge/black israelite jewels on this track i still dont understand some of the stuff he was spittin. Liquid Swords is a masterpiece. GOAT Hip Hop album. I love Ironman and I love Spice 1 debut but this Liquid Swords we talking about through. 500 mics. 1000/10. dont nare one of you niggas even put a jay z nas or biggie album in the same sentence as Liquid Swords. Liquid Sword better than all of them.

    Fishscale might be the best album in the past 5 years, easily the most underrated and deserves a 5 mic rating, dont sleep

    at first all i saw was the name of some of the songs, and i was about to tell you "yo you know thats the text from the back of the album cover right?"
    went back and double-checked so i didn't look stupid

    OB4CL. The aggression on that album is unmatched. That albums embodies NYC. Takes me back to being a young dumb nigga lacing shit.

    For Me it goes:

    1. OBFCL - Just passes Liquid swords cause its cinematic experience. Pure heat.
    2. Liquid Swords - Dense sounding, Wu sound at its best.
    3. Supreme Clientele - Lyrically Ghost is on point on this

    All Classics 5/5

    Wu Tang Forever
