RZA Reflects On Ironman 5 Years Ago

RZA Reflects on Ghostface Killah’s Ironman 15 Years Later – XXL

“One of my favorite songs was “Assassination.” I remember not going to sleep for like three days working on that song because I bought a slide guitar that I didn’t know how to play. And you hear that sound [makes slide guitar sound] one of them old country slide guitars, me trying to play it and sampling my own playing. Eventually I got something out that motherfucker and that song to me is still one of those raw ass Wu Tang song, its just hard lyrics, obscure beat, know what I mean and the weirdest fucking hook.”


The Tale of Cappa’s Winter Warz Verse, As Told In Dutch

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.

Winter Warz: Cappadonna over zijn legendarische verse – Hiphop In Je Smoel

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

SOHH: Ghostface: Them Hollywood Cats Is Up On Ya Boy, Starks

Stark Industries Presents

So I did a little cameo for the new Ironman movie a while back. They got my man Robert Downey Jr. playing Tony Starks. When I heard they were doing the movie I was like ‘cool.’ Then my peoples told me they wanted to be up in the joint. It bugged me out. I ain’t really know them Hollywood cats was up on me and sh*t. But I guess they was.So I went to the set or whatever and did my thing. Before the scene homeboy with the little walkie talkie on his ear came in and was like Robert Downey wanted to come by. I was like ‘word’? No doubt. He is the star of the movie coming to holla at P. Tone.So we met and money knew my darts. From like way back from the ‘Ironman’ album. Kind of bugged me out. Made me feel real good and sh*t.

And the scene we shot was real cool. I had like a couple honeys walking with me that I blessed Tony Starks with. Two bad joints too. He was like getting on his private jet and I was like ‘boom, take these with you.’ Then later my man told me in the comic book that there was a black dude who plays Ironman when the real Starks falls apart. And in the movie it’s cousin Terrance Howard from the pimp movie with Ludacris. Yeah ‘Hustle and Flow.’ I was like damn they should have got your boy for that part. I wanna get my acting game up like Common and them n*ggas. I’m gonna rock it though. I have a couple flicks I’m working on. Word up.

[Ed: Pretty shamefull that Ghost does not even know Warmachine. And I don’t think Common’s acting is all that good. Funny about Robert Downey though, giving him two joints and rreciting Ironman verses.]

Ghostface aka Paisley Fontaine goes in on his style, vision and that other Wu-Tang Clan album.

Chances are a above average rapper will drop a solid album or two or three, some good, some not so good, and call it a career. When it comes to Ghostface Killah, the odds are a bit better. Dennis Coles, party member of that band of merry rappers calling themselves the Wu-Tang Clan, has dropped multiple classics (Ironman, Supreme Clientele, and don’t forget the guest starring role on Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…). Add to that exceptional albums like Fishscale and The Pretty Toney Album, and Tony Starks sports one of the strongest musical catalogs in Hip-Hop.

Whether his latest venture achieves the renowned status of his early masterpieces is a matter of time. Don’t bet against him, though. While the Clan’s once impregnable armor has been nicked by infighting, lack of focus and at times plain subpar material, Ghost Deini has remained consistent enough to at times single handedly keep the Clan’s iron flag waving. Dropping heater after heater, whether it be his own solo work, via scene stealinf guest spots or sharing the mic with his Theodore Unit squad, Ghost never fails to get busy. Now with a lucky seventh album added to the discography, The Big Doe Rehab, we take a look back at some of Ghostface’s winning plays.
