so many ill MCs and you put biggie as number 1... the most overrated rapper of all time
Respect your list
Easy e wasn't a lyricist. Legend yes. But like dr dre great rappers but both weren't emcees. Mase was a beast on the mic. Maybe your a bit young but after biggie the biggest emcee in the game when he died was mase. Jay z was even behind him. Murda mase especially his early work and freestyles back in 95 and 96 even before he released his debut was some crazy shit. Dude is a real lyricists. He would be higher of he didn't have such a huge fall from grace. Same as eminem. Massive fall for grace. That's why I usually rate on there best work.
too much East Coast orientated, no Eazy-E and Mase is in ?
Lool "drake the best rapper alive" go die please..
We need 4th Chamber shit.. You really do need to have a Wu Family Reunion, sit around and listen to 36 Chambers, Liquid Swords, Ironman, Tical, Return to the 36 Chambers, Only Built for Cuban Linx, Heavy Mental, Six Feet Deep, Dirty Weaponry, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, The Last Shall Be First, Soldiers of Darkness/Five Arch Angels.. audibly digest what made you great then make us an album.
commercialy it was '97 Wu was poppin'
Wu-Tang Forever was their pinnacle in my opinion. But so many classics.
I love the hell out of some Wu-Tang Clan, but let's call a Spade a Spade. The production is mediocre at best. He basically took a LARGE (especially with the chorus which the same chorus from the original) loop from the O'Jays & just added nice drums to it. No chop, no twist or anything inventive or ingenious. Masta Killa came good, Mef wasn't even trying on this one (usually he rips posse cuts) & of course Ghostface hit it out the park on this one like everything he does. This is the same kind of beat-making that P-Diddy & his production crew did so well in the 90's, which is sample an already popular hit song, add just a few nuances to to make it sound modern, & it was a hit!!! As much as it is good hearing a new track from them, I can't co-sign this mediocre stuff. I think we all should expect more from them because time & time again they have did that in the past (well when they're fully focused on the music & not movies, etc.) So by all of you co-signing & saying how GREAT this track is, this won't PUSH Wu-Tang to step it up. Instead they'll assume they can just drop tepid music & that nostalgic fans will go CRAZY APE SHIT for half-cooked, half-cocked tracks. So when the new songs drop & many of them sound in this vein, don't complain about it because you're all ENABLERS to this!
Just Blaze got better drums
I understand what you're saying, but I feel like the sample is so good it doesn't really need much added on top of it. I do think the drums are a little basic, though. They should have gotten Kanye to do the drums for this sample.
Co-sign. Spot on 100%. There's really nothing special about this. It really is tepid & lazy at best. I hope the album will be better than this.
Wu-tang clan is forever!!!!
HipHopGood has all theyre music before all these other website and they have that J. Cole Born Sinner already www. HipHopGood .com
wu tang is forever.
my buddy's half-sister makes $85 an hour on the internet. She has been out of work for five months but last month her income was $14396 just working on the internet for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more... Can99.com
woow, they're still here... kings
Not feeling it. I wanted some bring the ruckus type joint with spine-tingling, bust-yo-shit-open beats yo. SHalom
spine-tingling with mad styles, and crazy, dangerous, bust-yo-shit open beats y'knahmean?
This is corny
I would have wanted some raw shit for a 20th anniversary joint. This sounds like a family matters intro type of song smh
This is the summer music I wanna hear
irrelevent reunion for irrellevent niggas with irrelevent fans and irrelevent music. Drake runs rap only drake can make hits only drake can have platinum albums only drake can make music fans of all genres instead of the hating basement 40 year old virigin wutang fans. Drake runs rap and drake shits on putang clan.
Hip Hop is timeless fuck boy! you and drake will be forgot about in no time... drake is a r&b diva!
Haha.... YOU DICK!
This joint old, but dope AF! They play this every live concert. Yung Dirty comes out and does his shimmy shimmy yeah right after. Classic.
Finally!! Wonderful beat, great verses!!!
That vibe. So laid back and feel good. Classic hip hop.
chill song for the middle of an album. not a single.
vuteng forever bre jebem ti!
Wu-Tang is hip-hop.
This song is refreshing and I like the way the Rza flipped the O'Jays sample. It wasn't meant to be a bust your head open hardcore street single it's just a way of showing appreciation to the fans for sticking by them for the past 20 years and try to get the Clan back together for their upcoming reunion tour and album. Great song all around.
The sample is too obvious - "Family Reunion" by the O'Jays., one of RZA's most underwhelming beats. Ghost is worth it though.
Only worth it for GFK. Otherwise it's not that good.
Wu-Tang again? Classic!
real hip hop
Good summerjam. Fuck you all
Disappointed is not even wort me rating !!!!!!!!
Your trolling is bad and you should feel bad
the Rza the Razar
I've played this song like 50 songs, I swear. This is better then anything out right now. Way above average.
bet you aren't.
it's mediocre. i've listened three times and already over it.
All I can say to that is word. I'm replaying this non-stop.
It's wu muthafucka
@Big Bad Barrio 18, E'z up
BITCH, DON'T KILL MY VIBE, puta
some of you stans only want to hear songs about crack, whores and murder
Only people with no soul can hate on this!
This is so chilling , perfect for those summer nights , amazing vibe.
Beat is WACK. These dudes haven't made a classic track since "Triumph" dropped back in 1997. Wu-Tang Forever my ass, homie.
digga, I'm talking WU as a group albums. But I haven't been too impressed with many Wu member solo albums either from 2000 and on, to be honest. I might be the only one to feel this way but I can't stand GFK's "Sumpreme Clientele" album.
fry, I'm not saying "Triumph" is their BEST song but it is ONE of their best songs and certainly a classic no doubt about that, video or not. Each MC is in fine form on the "Triumph" joint.
big bad wario sounds like he's never listened to Wu Tang. Triumph is faaar from their best song. Just because it had a video and was pushed on radio doesn't mean it's the best. Try listening to Wu-Tang.
@Big bad barrio, are u talking about the Wu tang albums as in the whole group or the wu solo albums. now if u say the wu group albums i agree. but the wu solos? no.
@Big Bad Barrio 18, E'z up
BITCH, DON'T KILL MY VIBE
It ain't WU if it ain't that Killa Bee shit, period! But it don't matter. All WU albums after "Forever" were mediocre at best. Even WU Forever wasn't that great and would of been much better as a single disc joint. The new WU album will be the same mediocre album like the last one was. Also, you don't know who my favorite rappers are, puto. I was buying up Slick Rick, EPMD and Kane records when you was still sucking on nipple.
This is not that killa bee shit on purpose it supposed to be some some cool out summer shit,what were these forty year old vets supposed to rap over,some down south/ Miami lex Luger bullshit like your fave rapper French retard
this is crispy SOUL MUSIC.
i'm confident this isn't doing anything for little half gay boys into miguel stalking rappers twitter pages. if you think j.cole is gonna change the game this song will probably fall flat.
this is for people who actually like FEELING in their music.
not for a plastic world.
very surprised by the vibe and the lineup but it works, love it.
these are gods of the culture.
Same thoughts about your moms
It's always great to hear Wu-Tang Clan, especially on a track as fascinating as this. Thanksalot for sharing it with us. Much love.
have you ever listened to Wu-Tang before?
Next album is going to be a classic.
Dope shit 5 stars
Rozenberg said that Ja Rule wrote Tony Stark verse on this shit. MURDA
i don't like it....just because I like the original ojays song so much......
this is dope!!!!!!!
Waiting for more Wu
OMG real hip hop in here yo
Daniel Bryan! YES YES YES!!
now they just old n fat
soft cornaball has been fucks... Hope Cappa didn't sell the cab!
haha madnesssssssssssssssssssssssssss ...throw your W'S UP
yoooo, dis shit rite chea, had the dead bobbin ther head nahmean, Maywood Reppah
Damn. They have still got it.
man this is classic wu get outta here
just shut the fuck up and listen to the song . 5 .
Wu Tang will kill the year
This album better be good.
anyone who doesn't like this is under 20 and probably fans of odd future. they probably also think those samples and the dj commentary is part of the song. snapback wearing faggots. You shit on this then praise j cole's boring ass?
Big Wu fan, but this is like a Ghost track, kind of wack... Lets move on, hope the album sound real at least..
lol...Ghost has the best solo catalogue in the group. Easily.
I understand DJs have to tag, but damn! Great day for HipHop tho
This is what we need, break beats and lyrics! Wu forever!
aaight. guess it's over, actually it's been over for 13 years. apart from a few ghost albums and lose tracks here and there
lyrically right the radio mix sounded like sh** though
Sounding nice right here
D.J Doing his best to ruin it . But track is nice real kickback vibe
Pretty dope, wish all the Clan was on this. When's the CDQ dropping, cuz Daniel Bryan's YES! YES! YES! is annoying!
I can't say that I've ever heard a wrestling related dj drop before.
this is a nice 'chill the fuck out' song...laidback
R.O.F.L .......Attention seeking whores like you are so funny
Nice Joint.Very nice 4.25........keep bringing that
nice lil sumthin,,from the wu,,,like the vibe
pretty dope! I assumed everybody would be on the track though...not just MK, Mef, and Big Ghost
not every track is like triumph or protect ya neck, you fool. have you ever listened to the clan?
Hmmm.... I'm not sure what I think about this. I don't hate it, but it sounds like a god damn 70's TV show intro, especially the hook.
Average by Wu Standards, Golden by Modern standards
Too fucking right
don't really like it. :S
Sounds average but this will probably just be the introduction to the album.
WU-TANG CLAN UK TOUR 2013
Oooooooh Yes !!!! Finaly !!!!
The DJ needs his motherfucking *ASS WHOOPED* for playing all those stupid fuckin obnoxious samples and talking over the track the whole time.
JUST LET THE FUCKING SONG PLAY YOU BITCH
You guys are idiots. Do you think they actually want to wreck the tracks? Really? No, they do that to limit piracy when they're promoting new music.
DJs mess it up all the time. All they have to do is press play and sit down.
That smooth o'jays shit...all you niggas tryin to complain, chop your ears off and THEN listen...jerk...
Wu-Tang Family Reunion is great idea but this track sucks
Wu-tang and De la Soul are the only legendary groups who've still been around since 20 odd years and still rocking it. Hiphop is not about how much money you make or who's the most popular. It's about the creativity and artform of delivering real emceeing and painting pictures by story telling.
All about simple marketing plans NOW give the dumb folks what they want=DOLLARS
tell that to the record label executives and bosses. if money is not mentioned they won't give 2 damns.
OH MY GOD, THAT SAMPLE IS CRAZYYYYY. Finally, some good music to vibe to. Fuck J Cole and Kendrick and Joey Badass and all these new dumbed down versions of older, better, artists. Fucking weirdos. I'm not impressed by that sub par garbage. The real is finally back.
Love that soul
this Ish i like
Dogshit. Except for Ghost, these bums need to stop. RZA should stick to acting, which is he's great at. SANFORD & SON reruns >>>>> "Family Reunion"
Real hip hop right here. Checkout thegrandreport, they got some good stuff on there too
I like hope the album comes out soon
Perfect track for the summer. Suuu!
Dope summer jam
Just a simple, positive, feel good track...I'm feeling it.
Nah, wild boring.
not bad but nothing special
