Raekwon: Wu-Gambinos

The following is a quote from The RZA’s Twitter: ”It's my birthday! BONG”


In recognition of The RZA’s birthday, I’d like to turn your attention to “Wu-Gambinos” from Raekwon’s classic, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.... Aside from the fact that this album encompasses some of RZA’s best and most innovative production work, (Gotta love those crudely collaged orchestrations), I was always drawn to his appearance on this track, particularly the muted reprise of the song’s chorus just before RZA, vocal impediment in place, rattles off his phrases with a commanding presence that almost outshines everyone else’s contribution.



Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
