I had a real treat the other night in a humble Hoboken, NJ studio. I was able to sit in on a session and watch one of the true masters work his craft.
That master was the Inspectah Deck himself, the infamous ninth member of the Wu-Tang Clan, and now CEO of his new label Urban Icon Records. Deck was solo with no entrouge taking care of business. It was truly a pleasure watching a true Emcee go through the process of writing rhymes for a beat he was working with.
Instead of jumping into a quick interview I waited for a good three hours before I spoke a word to Deck. During that time I became a student and watched one of the best do his thing. I made observations of Deck going back and forth several times, working the rhyme and listening to the beat. I sat there thinking that what he just did here in three hours is better than anything that is getting spins on the radio right now. Deck
