I'm pretty sure his name is Paul Williams.




C'mon, Lamont.  Everyone knows Paul Williams' slam poetry is awesome.
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

Listen to it a couple more times. It took me about 3 listens but now I'm totally in love with it. It's certainly nothing like any other Wu-Tang CD but I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Could have used fewer instrumental breaks and a little less singing, but other than that I think it's great. I think 8 Diagrams is going to be the new "ending of Sopranos".

I think 8 Diagrams is going to be the new "ending of Sopranos".

I've heard three tracks so far and they sounded like mid-season 4 Sopranos at best.  Nevertheless, that comment prompted this pointless exercise:

Tony Soprano = RZA (the abbot)
Silvio Dante = GZA (the consiglierie or whatever)
Paulie Walnuts = Ghostface Killah (the most awesome)
Christopher = Method Man (always high)
Big Pussy = Raekwon (uhm...?)
Ralph Cifaretto = OBD ODB (crazy; doomed)
Baccala = Inspectah Deck (kicks the truth to the young black youth)
Furio = Masta Killa (barely talks/raps)
Patsy Parisi = U-God (no one cares)
Vito = Cappadonna (way too much screen/mic time)

And Uncle Junior is like the Sugarhill Gang or something.

And don't forget the great song on his solo album, "You gotta bee onna you hat!"

Also, your Inspectah Deck/Bobby Baccala connection is genius*.

edit: Oh yeah, and I wanted to mention that once I did a similar comparative post with Wu-Tang and the Comedians of Comedy on AST.

I kind of liked that song with all the singing. It was ballsy. Really, the whole album was and RZA pulled it off even with two members of his group at his throat.

"Stick me for my riches" = amazing. I love the whole album.

I'm baffled as to why "watch your mouth" wasn't on the album. When I first heard that song I didn't know what to think of it...the second time I heard it it became an all-time favorite.

You go get 'em Wu-Tang!!!

Somebody posted this on Okayplayer and it's a perfect
illustration of how I feel about the state of rap and arguments I have with people
about the music all the time.

also, nothing like having a song on Tony Hawks Underground to get yourself some street cred, R.A.

I'm not a big Ruggedman fan but he totally pwned Rude Jude.  That West Coast vs. East Coast stuff is stupid.  Just because Hammer wasn't as famous before You Can't Touch This doesn't mean he wasn't terrible.  Next you're gonna tell me Kool Mo Dee wasn't crappy.

I understand his point but anyone who says that they never liked anything that's not cool now is a liar.
