Liquid Swords


the acknowledged head of the wutang clan genius aka gza delivers the fifth wubanger with his sophomore solo album musically liquid swords is the clan's strongest solo release to date and lyrically genius comes correct with a style he describes as 'too swift to bite' liquid swords is comprised of two types of songs all backed by the rza's skilful production on the one hand genius schools the clan's followers through songs that address serious problems experienced in every day innercity life 'cold world' which is backed by whirling wind sound contains ministories that illustrate the misfortunes of gunslinging in the hiphop community 'investigative reports' goes even deeper in administering the blame suggesting that drugrelated crimes stem from a higher authority on the other hand there are the clan's kungfu metaphors which show up on genius' more wustyled songs on 'duel of the iron mic' he's joined by a number of fellow clansmen to reinstate the idea that no one can match them despite numerous attempts to copy their image and concepts similarly the production on songs like '4th chamber' and 'shadowboxin'' closely relates them to enter the 36 chambers and helps make liquid swords a complete wu release
