Product Description

Product Description

Japanese edition of the Wu-Tang rapper's 2001 album includes two bonus tracks, 'Odyssey' (featuring Isaac Hayes Band) & 'Cousin' (Featuring Doc Gyneco Cilvaringz).


Wu-Tang Clan mastermind RZA's sophomore solo project comes with Kobe Bryant-high expectations. Unfortunately, there's much here to suggest that the RZA's beat-making skills need to be RZA-rected. The largely sample-based vocal loops employed on "Can't Loose" and spontaneous tempo changes on "Brooklyn Babies" hint at the full brilliance once illustrated by one of hip-hop's most avant-garde producers. Similarly, "Must Be Bobby" boasts some of the off-kilter keyboard sounds that have become a trademark of his productions. However, long gone are the experimental beats and rhymes first heard on Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Instead, one is left with confusing tracks in which barely decipherable rapid-fire rhymes about bedding women and shooting guns are strung together. "Black Widow Pt.2" is another one of those mediocre and offensive songs where lyrical loose cannon Ol' Dirty Bastard utters juvenile profanities. While "Show You Love" is a timely ode to the full range of Wu diehards, Bobby Digital's sexcapade rhymes square off one too many times against his 5%-Nation-of-Islam musings. Doesn't one style completely undermine the other? Well, "Build Strong" kind of sums up why RZA's once-dominant career is spiraling downwards when he raps that he's "physically enslaved by the luxuries of this world / So I behave like a man inside the grave, who's life is lost." --Dalton Higgins

Out of all the Wu-Tang members, we should know by now that RZA is one of the most creative one in the collective group. Maybe because that's why he created his Bobby Digital alter-ego to mix underground hip-hop with a little bit of comic book pimpology and street science.
"Show U Love" is the track that starts off this album. This track rocks with the same crafted beats from Ghostface's "We Made It". Things get different with the Wu-Tang all star collabo of "Glocko Pop". It has a western-like sound and RZA, Meth, Masta Killa & Streetlife bring it with their tightest verses to date.
The main track that will catch your attention is "Must Be Bobby" as it has some tight production by Mathematics and RZA's verses really pierce like bullets on this track. The album also brings it with another element : sequels, two in fact. RZA goes from visting the dysfunctional "Domestic Violence pt. 2" (this time with a little help from Goodie Mob's Big Gipp) to letting ODB go solo on the deranged "Black Widow pt. 2".
Showing how he can keep things moving, RZA shows us the best from The Wu-Tang Killa Bees like "Do U" where GZA & Prodical Son come with some ill verses to how Meth, Killa Sin and Beretta 9 come correct on the salsa-flavored " La Rhumba" to how RZA gets down with the Black Knights on "Throw Your Flag Up"and weeps through the slow-tempo sounds of "Build Strong".
Okay, I have to admit while this album has it's strong side by having some tight Wu-Bangers, it's not enough to resurrect Shaolin's Finest but it does do a good job. It keeps the Wu's voices alive and it gives you hope that they will return strong.

It is unfair to say this album is garbage, but then again its unfair to say this is classic. This is neither. Its right in the middle.
I have to say this is nothing like Bobby Digital In Stereo by any stretch of the imagination. Also to add to that comment, this album is not what I expected. I expected something more than what I got.
Some of the reviews apraise this album. I have to disagree. I know there are tracks that shine, no doubt, but most are below what the Rza is capable of doing, production wise, and from the lyrical aspect.
The production overall is nice at times, whack at times. We all know this. No one can sit and say that through and through this album production wise is perfect. No way.
The lyrical standpoint and subject matter from Rza and his guest are like I said before neither impressive and hot, or straight garbage.
Tracks worth the listen.
"Brooklyn Babies" nice beat, diverse flow, decent track
"Shady" nice hook, funny lyrics, Rza keepin it real with da hos
"Throw Your Flag Up" my favorite track, nice lyrically and the beat is straight meat rack material
The others tracks could have had more potential but the production wasn't there and neither was the subject matter.
Overall 2.5 stars. I wish I could give the past master Rza more, but this album just doesn't deserve it. I can't tell you to get this, and I can't tell you not to get this. Make you own decision and buy the album or not buy it. Be warned, this is nothing like the first classic Bobby Digital.

digital bullet is a true hip hop album every beat and rhyme is at its highest peak, this album is a prime example of hip hop the way it should be instead of all this r'n'b mixed with hip hop bull gettin released recently, you a hip hop fan? buy the rza album if you cant feel it your mind is simply not on hip hop. simple as that, the beats and lyrics on every song show rza's ability to keep the hip hop originality in his music, he doesnt bring no r'n'b into it, he doesnt use the commercial sort of beats like ludacris or timbaland, that tend to portray hip hop the same thing as r'n'b by mixin one sort of beat with a different style, (...) and losin the roots. he keeps his beats crisp and digital strictly hip hop beats, and most important he is original, nobody out there can bring hip hop like the rza, he aint da main man in wu for no reazon! so do da research, if you think your ready for hip hop get this album, guaranteed satisfaction if u know what hip hop is. get his older album too, that too is true hip hop. and prepare to be digitized! oh yeh gotta buss the new ghost album and da rest of da wu solo albums, cant wait for ww2 either, the gravediggaz album too, r.i.p poetic aka grym reaper, your style will never die. peace

First off this is for sure a BOB DIGI album...Its all about those snake type women he comes across in his Digi life style...and the trouble they bring to him and his alter ego Rza. The production is a mix of old Wu ways with new Digi styles so it is diffrent and the lyrics are split between the fight of the Rza against the ways of Bobby and Bobby just enjoyin his ladies and hatein on them. There are some classics up in here .."Do you" uses the Wu revolutions violin and throws in a Digi twist to give you somethin new and dope. Songs like "must be Bobby" "Glock Go Pop" "throw up your Flags" "Be a Man" and "sickness" follow in that direction ,being a new mix of WU and Digi..some song will take you by surprise you and scare you away ,like "fools" "bong bong" "Shady" and "Brooklyn Babies" but they are what makes this album worth getting, the beat on Bong Bong is crazy Digi style and is a what this album is all about...If you felt the first Bobby Digi album be prepared this is a leap like that was for us WU fans but be sure and know Bobby has returned for the good
