34. "The first time I heard the radio version of "Glaciers of Ice"" In response to In response to 0
Just the beat alone, WTF. It's beautiful noise, RZA put a whole lot of space between himself and the other hot producers of that time. Rae attacks the track with fury, then Ghost comes in with a hook that's just super gutter and not radio friendly at all. This is supposed to be the first single? Next Masta Killa gets on the track sounding better than ever, followed by some eerie sounding wailing from Blue Raspberry. Ghost's verse maintains the momentum, and when he ended it with the "my seeds, grow with his seeds, marry his seeds, that's how we keep Wu-Tang money all up in the family" I was like damn, these dudes are all in. By the time 60 Second Assassin's vocals came in, I was totally done. And if the video version wasn't epic enough, you get the album version and it has the legendary Wallabee Clarks intro.
