    only just really started getting into wu .. realised what i been missing out on ...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmO2qpAmp-c


    Yo... this song is...
    Aiyyo Dunn this song is called Sunshower
    Cause we approachin the final hour
    You know I ahh all I can say to my brothers and sisters right now
    Is stay close to your families, and all your loved ones
    Cause this globe is about to explode with hatred
    They killin for pennies, knahmsayin?
    Peace to the Gods, we got a heavy job... yo, yo

    Trouble follows behind a wicked mind, 20/20 vision
    of the prism of light but still blind
    because you lack the inner, every sinner
    will end up in the everlastin winter of hellfire
    Throw on this mix just picks your third eye out
    you cry out your words fly out, and sounds die out
    You remain unheard, sufferin eternally, internal external
    Along with your wicked fraternal from generals to colonels
    Releasin thermonuclear heat that burns you firmly
    And permanently upon this journey
    Through the journal of the book of life
    Those who took a life without justice
    will become just ice ice ice
    It's been taught that your worst enemy can harm you
    as much as your own wicked thoughts
    What devils fought we wrought, and let's annoint
    Now you're bein persecuted by that universal court court court
    Iron hell with the strong blend of rape and blend of sandal
    with rose petals and jasmine, as men use talismans
    Burn some incense, chantin witchcraft to reach high dimensions
    I'm convinced, Allah is God always has been always will be
    You could travel every square inch of the planet and still be
    Ninety-three million miles away from the sun
    Til you realize you and the sun is one, like the knowledge
    Know the ledge to where your heart is
    or fall off into the internal hell that's uncharted
    Light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second
    through time and space, until it reach a target
    And once we're freed of darkness, and show em where the path
    Yo as the Red Sea was parted, into these straight
    at the narrow gate, but why that's a road to destruction and hate
    What you thought life was a sport? A game?
    One hundred years short, know the soul is immortal
    Walk through many portals, and those who go astray
    will pay a judgment day, and these few years of wicked bullshit
    ain't worth the eternity inside a sulfur lake
    With dragons and snakes, and any pain you can imaginate
    Instead, I chose to become a newlywed to the true bread
    of life and fed God Degree of light to my head
    It's been said, the fool who sleep is already dead, so I stay awake
    And take care of my brother, and uncover reveal the skin
    so we can see each other, cause every color
    that makes the light appear duller, who's the colored man?
    Who's the original, who's the biochemical
    Who's the grafted digital, digital, digital, digital
    Digital.. yo, yo, yo, yo, yo

    Two hundred thousand million atmosphere cubic feet of air we breath
    While niggaz minds are trapped twenty thousand fathoms beneath
    the sea of reality, they can't inhale deep, devils have em
    Stagnant, a trapping, the .45 magnum
    And shatter bone fragments
    Cops love the block you gettin backed up by Dragnet
    Thrown into a six by a steel cabinet
    Flippin weights readin ancient tablets, back on the block nobody's havin it
    Those who haven't learnt get returned
    You freaky ass niggaz get burned
    Some walk around like they ain't concerned
    with the hell goin on inside the world
    The body of old men molest little girls
    Is it because the girl's breast has swelled
    to the size of a woman, although she's twelve
    The whole world is sick, sick, sick
    Trapped up in six, six, six
    I started off as a pawn in this marathon of life
    Tryin to carry on, wishin I had a bomb to blow up Babylon
    A vagabond, tryin to steal his corpse we're from paragon
    goin in circles, like a ferris wheel
    Undernourished meals I cherish hope, drown inside the sea of life
    Use my third eye for a periscope, and take flight to the edge of night
    To far heights so dark that even wit a bright light
    you couldn't see a spark of light
    While others play ball, ID call, me and GZA Dirty
    hangin in halls, bangin on walls
    Kickin rhymes three hours straight with no pause
    Boostin from Freeport sunrise to Amityville morgue
    Kept razorblade between the jaws, breakin all laws
    Started out writin fables to makin beats on lunchroom tables
    to wearin long cables that hung down to the navel
    So pack some crack and fat sacks of skunk
    to funnel the P-Funk, smokin woolie blunts
    Dust cocktails and primos, shot more dice than casinos
    Back when Wu-Gambinos were called F.O.I. MC's
    All and together now crew B.C.C.
    REC Posse, G.P., D.M.D.
    Ol Dirty stalked East New York GZA maintained Franklin Lane
    I was going to time with the Jeff, when students got slain
    Polo got nervous walked me to Shaolin sent me to Curtis
    Took share time in Marquis, New God general contractin service
    While Meth Chef and Dead was off the Nu-dol
    For white boys who took steroids
    Buildin up bicep tricep pectoids and deltoids
    Back when our girlfriends was virgins
    Cuttin class with Ghost tryin to bag hoes in Mary Birchem
    A Maybeldine beacon night school Washington Irving
    These young Gods was seekin
    Hoes in Westinghouse and Clara Parton and Medina
    Girls who sung like Sarafina
    On the corner of Belmont and Picket Avenue I seen her
    As if I dreamed her
    I was dead broke, now I will use key notes to make G-notes
    So it's always hope
    See subway train run through the city like blood through the veins
    To the heart of Medina, but Shaolin is the brain
    So take heed to these words
    And feel the power of the Sunshower ​




    rza's a fuckin brain .. feel like ive fucked up by not listening to him properly untill now .. just listened to this track about 20 times, trying t ounderstand and take it all in .

    Mate, as soon as you can, buy his debut album. Awesome stuff. Less than £4 on Amazon

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/RZA-as-Bobby-Digital-Stereo/dp/B0000241B1


    Also Killa Bees the Swarm is sick as fuck too. GZA liquid swords aswell. Ghostface Supreme Clientele is awesome. So many good ones to list, got loads in the cd rack behind me, not listened to them for ages though, might give them a spin later on!

    Also if you ever see a film called Ghost Dog, with Forest Whitaker, RZA did the soundtrack for that, bangin soundtrack.

    He also does the soundtrack (which is brilliant) to Afro Samurai.

    He produced all Wu Tang's joint stuff, and most of the solo stuff too.

    As far as rapping goes, he's not outstanding. He's pretty solid though. His lyrics are quality and his flow is pretty good (bit choppy sometimes though)

    You guys checked him out as part as an other group, Tha Gravediggaz. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravediggaz

    He's sick in that group. Prince Paul, who produced De La Soul's stuff produces a lot of their stuff.

    RZA's only on their first 2 albums.

    My favourite tune of theirs

    yea gravediggaz only had the one LP that was BIGGLES! with 2 cups of blood



    Rza & Prince Paul is magical

    and i liked some select tracks off bobby digi, the kiss of the black widdow being the best tune on that with ODB samples portishead

    RZA has a great ear for sampling in the end. always hunting the perfect sample.

    no one has mentioned it ye, but rza did the Kill Bill soundtracks no?
    and im pretty sure (could be wrong) he had summin to do with Blade Trinity soundtrack to

    I saw him in a film recently to, Funny People.

    he is in fact, well on it.

    Have u seen the black roc video of him recording his guitar bit on a track? its good

    thought he was good in Derailed.

    this. used to be into wu but never really listened to much of the individual artists... this is some lyrical poetry with MEANING... refreshing to listen to an MC who doesn't just chat about hoe's, guns and cash or how much 'badder' he is than other mc's...

    Yeh, he does do the Kill Bill soundtrack.

    Pretty sure the strings on Triumph is also on Kill Bill (ain't seen the film in time though, so not 100% sure)
