"Title Track" Tuesday

The GZA - Liquid Swords

Produced by The RZA

"I'm on a mission that niggas say is impossible
But when I swing my swords they all choppable
I be the body stopper, the heartbeat stopper
Child educator, plus head amputator"

The GZA, also well-deservedly known as The Genius, released his seminal masterpiece, Liquid Swords, in 1995. The album kicked off with this classic song, setting it off on an excellent note. Following a sample from Shogun Assassin, which recurs throughout the album, RZA comes through with a classic Wu-Tang beat and GZA lyrically rips the tracks to shreds. On a strictly lyrical level, GZA is easily one of the greatest. 
*5 out of 5*
