Starting off the album is "Striving for Perfection". It's basically Rae and Ghost talking about what's best for them and whatnot. "Knuckleheadz" is a pretty grimey track. U-God (who usually doesn't wow you actually does on this track) does good."Knowledge God is also a very grimey track. This is the first of the Raekwon's solos. "Crimonology" is no subject in school. Rae and Ghost rip this track up. Very good beat by RZA. "Incarcerated Scarfaces" (like everyone says) is probably in the list of best rap songs of all time. Rae takes this one on his own lyrically slashing the track starting with the hook "Now yo,yo/what up, yo/Time is running out/It's fo' real though/Let's connect politic, DITO/We can trade places/Get lifted in the stair cases/Word Up, Peace Incarcerated Scarfaces".Read more ›
Rakewon displays his abilities as a soloist in knowledge god, which he deserves great praise for:
"Mafia flicks, tyin up tricks was his main hobby
Teachin his seed, Wu-Tang karate."
Incarcerated scarfaces is another all time rap classic which in my opinion is not only the best track on this excellent album but one of the top five tracks in hip hop history. It opens up with a great scence from a kung fu movie of a shaolin hero. It is a Raekwon soloist track as well. Great beat and incredible lyrics: Can't stand unofficial, wet tissue, blank bustin Scud missles
"You rollin like Trump, you get your meat lumped
For real, it's just slang rap democracy"
Incarcerated Scarfaces like so many other songs on this album has ghostface and Raekwon coming up with hilarious, witty phrases with street grime to them.
Even the song ice Water which has a pretty weak beat is totally redeemed by lyrics like : "I know a few niggaz sniff coke, it cause seizures
Peace to half-moon Caesars
and all the bitches in the bleachers"
Then you have the Nas collaboration with Ghostface as well in "Verbal Intercourse" which is anther indubitable classic. Which is shortly followed by Ice Cream.Read more ›
