Rza Impossible

Rza's style is somewhat an aquired taste, and because of his grimey style and rugged delivery, he is often overlooked as a skilled MC. As displayed in Wu-Tang Clan's Impossible from the Wu-Tang Forever LP, Bobby gives us a sample of what a deep and intelligent mind he posesses, beyond the "crazy, buss ya shit open beats."

Hear It!

Fusion of the five elements, to search for the higher intelligence

Women walk around celibate, livin irrelevant

The most benelovent king, communicatin through your dreams

Mental pictures been painted, Allah's heard and seen

everywhere, throughout your surroundin atmosphere

Troposphere, thermosphere, stratosphere

Can you imagine from one single idea, everything appeared here

Understanding makes my truth, crystal clear

Innocent black immigrants locked in housing tenemants

Eighty-Five percent tenants depend on welfare recipients

Stapleton's been stamped as a concentration camp

At night I walk through, third eye is bright as a street lamp

Electric microbes, robotic probes

Taking telescope pictures of globe, babies getting pierced with microchips

stuffed inside their earlobes, then examinated

Blood contaminated, vaccinated, lives fabricated

Exaggerated authorization, Food and Drug Administration

Testin poison in prison population

My occupation to stop the innauguration of Satan

Some claim that it was Reagan, so I come to slay men

like Bartholemew, cause every particle is physical article

was diabolical to the last visible molecule

A space night like Rom, consume planets like Unicron

Blasting photon bombs from the arm like Galvatron

From Rza's Latest Album Digi Snacks

While on the subject of Rza, here's my two cents on his latest album Digi Snacks. If you are a fan, and are familiar with Rza's previous work, Digi Snacks is definitely worth a listen. From a production standpoint, it is all that you come to expect from the Rza-Rector, reminding us why he is known as one of Hip-Hop most innovative and influential producers. However Digi Snacks does have a slightly different formula than previous Rza efforts. To remain relevant in THIS Hip-Hop game today, many artists seem to modify some aspects of their own originality, and in some cases fail horribly. This album is borderline, it contains hits, but an equal share of misses. Bobby has stepped outside of his normal boundaries with unexpected collaborations, such as production from David Banner, and in some instances, delivers a totally new sound (which aint always a good thing). The less favorable records could possibly have been saved with the help of his veteran Wu family, but instead feature Mc's who are not his level and have little or no chemistry. Style
