GZA – Liquid Swords (review – 80%) – 1995

7 Nov , 2015  

Bijou lyrical, avec Liquid Swords GZA prouvait qu’il avait sa place aux cotés des Nas et Big L. Dommage que les instrus ne soient pas au niveau des textes.


4th Chamber

I got mouths to feed, unnecessary beef is more cows to breed


Liquid Swords

Shit is too swift to bite you record and write it down
I flow like the blood on a murder scene, like a syringe
On some wild out shit, to insert a fiend

I put mad pressure, on phony wack rhymes that get hurt

I’m on a mission that niggas say is impossible
But when I swing my swords they all choppable


Duel Of The Iron Mic

Yo, Picture bloodbaths and elevator shafts
Like these murderous rhymes tight from genuine craft
Check the print, it’s where veterans spark the letterings
Slow moving MC’s is waiting for the editing
The liquid soluble that made up the chemistry
A gaseous element, that burned down your ministry

Fuck the screw-faced photo sessions facial expression
Leaves impressions, try to keep a shark nigga guessinged down your ministry
Where money don’t grown on trees and there’s thieving MC’s
Who cut-throat to rake leaves


Living In The World Today

My rhyme gross weight vehicle combination
Was too heavy for the Chevy’s, is chased out the station



Il se met dans la peau d’un dealer.



GZA s’en prend aux labels de l’époque et les citent en faisant un texte. 85% des labels présents dans la chanson n’existent plus.


Hell’s Wind Staff / Killah Hills 10304

GZA se met dans la peau d’un mafioso et il décrit son business de drogues ainsi que des meurtres.
