A Dutch Hiphop site has a nice story about the epi Cappadonna verse on Winter Warz that just goes on & on. It is in Dutch. But it would suit you well to use some Google translate on this one to get the gist of the story.
You heard other raps before but kept waiting
For the Son of Song, I keep dancehalls strong
Beats never worthy of my cause, I prolong
Extravaganza, time sits still
No propaganda, be wary of the skill
As I bring forth the music, make love to your eardrum
Dedicated to rap nigga, beware of the fearsome
Lebanon Don, Malcolm X beat threat
CD massacre, murder to cassette
I blow the shop up, you ain’t seen nothing yet
One man ran, tryna get away from it
Put your bifocal on, watch me a-cometh
Into your chamber like Freddy enter dream
Discombumberate your technique and your scheme
Four course applause, like a black jack to dat
You’re stuck on stupid like I’m stuck on the map
Nowhere to go except next show bro
Entertaining motherfuckers can’t stop O
In battling, you don’t want me to start tattling
All up on the stage cause y’all snakes keep rattling
Bitch, you ain’t got nothing on the rich
Every other day my whole dress code switch
So just in case you wanna clock me like Sherry
All y’all crab bitches ain’t got to worry
Can’t get a nigga like Don dime a dozen
Even if I’m smoked out I can’t be scoped out
I’m too ill, I represent Park Hill
See my face on the twenty dollar bill
Cash it in, and get ten dollars back
The fat LP with Cappachino on the wax
Pass it in your thing, put valve up to twelve
Put all the other LPs back on the shelf
And smoke a blunt and dial 9-1-7
And you could get long dick hip-hop affection
I damage any MC who step in my direction
I’m Staten Island best son, fuck what you heard
Niggas still talking that shit is absurd
My repertoire, is U.S.S.R
P.L.O. style got thrown out the car
And ran over by the Method Man Jeep
Divine can’t define my style is so deep
Like pussy, my low cut fade stay bushy
Like a porcupine, I part backs like a spine
Gut you like a blunt and reconstruct your design
I know you want to diss me, but I can read your mind
Cause you weak in the knees like SWV
Tryna get a title like Wu Killa Bee
Kid change your habit, you know I’m friends with the Abbott
Me and RZA rhyme name printed in the tablet
Under vets, we paid our debts for mad years
Hibernate the sound and now we out like bears
In Born Power, born physically, power speaking
The truth in the song be the pro-black teaching
Back in 2000 or 1999, Ghost visited RapCity in promotion of his Supreme Clientele. Ghost being him, this led to some very weird moments in the show with references to bodies being in bags and Cappa walking in and out like a henchman. Wu-Tang Gold.
Blending powerful insights into a medley of broken English and abstract slang is nothing new for Cappadonna. A legend in the borough of Staten Island long before he first appeared on Raekwon’s classic LP Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Cap has since forged a die hard following rhyming alongside his Wu-Tang comrades while dropping nearly half-a-dozen solo projects including his landmark debut The Pillage. And while some fans struggled to make sense of his rhymes, others marveled at a style of MCing that transcended words to generate a seemingly unparalleled intensity. Cap didn’t rhyme, he straight bombarded tracks, and if you ever heard songs like “Winter Warz” “Slang Editorial” and “Blood On Blood War” this is probably just a re-hashing of what has been obvious to many for the better part of a decade and a half.
After spending considerable time on tour with the Wu in ’06 through ’08, Cappadonna is back in ’09 with the brand new album Slang Prostitution. With guest appearances from Raekwon, Masta Killa and King Just, Slang Prostitution finds Cap reverting to what the MC describes as his “vintage” style, declaring the new project to be “based upon what the people are expecting from me”. On the eve of Slang Prostitution’s release we had a chance to catch up with the Papi Wardrobe King to talk Hip-Hop, life, politics and much more. Peep the realness, but don’t sweat the garments!
RIOTSOUND.COM: The title of your new LP is Slang Prostitution; is there something you are trying to make reference to as far as th title goes?
CAPPADONNA: Well, Slang Prostitution is based upon buying demand. It’s just a way of producing a friendly business relationship through the craftiness of words. And the words that we use is slang. So to describe my message, the broken English that I use, the witty unpredictable talent and natural game, is a form of prostitution, you know. It’s how we gotta tempt that message in the form of slang just to get that word out.

Intouch’ posted an article over at ChamberMusik that is worth reading for the Wu heads. It’s an old one an dates back to 1994. Point in question here is the story of Officer Brown and Kase, as mnetioned often in Wu’s lyrics. So here it is for the slow saturday reading.
Kudos to Intouch’ for digging this up.

The long-awaited Wu-Tang Clan album 8 Diagrams is finally out. How do you feel about the album finally being available to the fans?
I feel like itâ€™s all gully right now. The album is out. Itâ€™s been hard labor, basically nine months of pain going through the cracks and the crevices of life and at the end of the day, we were still able to pull it off through blood, sweat and tears.
Are you happy with the finished product?
I mean, you know, it is a collective entity. Collective minds collided together, so I canâ€™t really say that Iâ€™m not happy with the finished product because I had a chance to maybe make a difference if there was something I didnâ€™t like or something I did like. Iâ€™m just more or less happy with the completed version. Iâ€™m not really satisfied to my satisfaction, as far as my satisfaction is concerned, but Iâ€™m happy. Iâ€™m happy to be a part of something that was big and still has the potential to be big.
Raekwon recently came out and said he was going to support the album. If youâ€™re a part of the album, shouldnâ€™t it be assumed that you support it?
I believe that everybody should promote the album regardless of what, but you know, we all have individual opinions and everybody had different feelings and viewpoints on how they think things should be, not only in music but in life in general. I support every man for putting his work in and giving it his all to the best of his ability to bring forth a collective item. How people feel is in that one manâ€™s reference or how he feels the album should go and that right there can only bring about something more valuable in his solo attempts.

On the verge of releasing their 5th album, the Wu-Tang Clan stands at a crossroads. Internal bickering and the groups disdain for the RZA and his vision for 8 Diagrams have grabbed more headlines than the album itself. Has the album been sabotaged? Will this be the end of the Wu-Tang Clan? Wu-Tang is forever, but does this phrase hold any weight these days?
Youâ€™ve heard what Raekwon, Ghostface and RZA have had to say about 8 Diagrams, but one member you havenâ€™t heard from is Cappadonna. Loosely known as the â€œunofficial memberâ€, Cap was made an official Wu-Tang general this past fall. For myself and countless other Wu fans, itâ€™s been a long time coming.
Take a ride on the dart (pause) as Fake Shore Drive chats with the man who needs no introduction, the 10th Apostle, Cappadonna.
