GZA Artist Snapshot:

GZA (aka the Genius) was one of the three founding members--along with his cousins the RZA and Ol' Dirty Bastard--of the supremely influential Staten Island rap group the Wu-Tang Clan. With a steadily relentless flow that mixed gritty street imagery with intelligent lyrics and incisive commentary, GZA became one of the crew's most respected MCs and the group's most consistent link to the hip-hop underground. Although GZA's solo career hasn't been as successful as those of other members of the Wu, his debut, LIQUID SWORDS, is considered one of the finest hip-hop releases of the 1990s, and arguably the best of the original run of Wu solo records.

Product Notes

Some Wu members, like Cappadonna, are overly concerned with the way they dress, while others are a plain ol' inebriated mess (read: Ol' Dirty Bastard). For the GZA, it's all about the lyrics. With his nasal delivery and rapid-fire flow, he is the most experienced and oldest member of the Wu Tang Clan (he released a pre-Wu LP on Cold Chillin' Records entitled Words from the Genius in 1991). GZA's forte is battle rhymes (on his self-titled cut he declares that wack MCs' "lyrics are weak, like clock radio speakers"). On "Labels" he eloquently pens a complete song using only rap record label names. Loaded wordplay aside, beat-wise Liquid Swords is fully and exceptionally RZA-produced (peep the electric guitars and spacey synths on "Investigative Reports"). Liquid Swords is a perfect purchase for rap fiends who crave ill experimental beats and even iller punchlines. --Dalton Higgins
