OVERVIEW

The Wu just brings the muthafuckin’ ruckus. Gets you pumped.

Shame anyone tryna run game on a n****. ODB leads the way.

Clan stays in the front.

Wu starts making a lot of references to the movie The 36th Chamber of Shaolin.

The vibe slows down and the tone softens. Can it be simple?

The they individually introduce each other and show their own styles.

If you fuck with the Wu. They may fuck you up lyrically and physically.

Money runs everything.

M.E.T.H.O.D Man tears shit up.

Protect your neck. They starting to shoot and are smoking lyrical bud and other ill shit.

Just crazy rhymes for a few songs.

Ending in the 7th chamber.

This album is a classic.

Little dated but definitely dope.

Led the way for rappers today who reference DBZ and Kung Fu movies.

The production was perfect at the time.

The sampling was great.

I like this album.
