Wu-Tang Clan albums are always illustrious. They always require some preparation as if you know you are about to witness something epic within the headphones. The crew always seems to manage to make records that highlight each member’s eccentricities and skills. With Legendary Weapons, the Kung-Fu conglomerate revisits their consistency to compile thirteen gritty and brash songs.
“Steal The Show,” brings the Shaolin style they emanate to full display with Raekwon and RZA delivering some laden verbal artillery on religion and politics. Method Man unleashes his murky flow on “Diesel Fluid,” which is the only cut where Method materializes.
The weapon that is perhaps the most legendary on Legendary Weapons is “Never Feel This Pain,” featuring U-God and Inspectah Deck, who do not have the notoriety of Ghostface or Raekwon but still pack punches in their knuckle sandwich mic spitting. Brazen roughness is sprayed all over “225 Rounds,” a cut that swarms with the honey the killer bees of the Wu-Tang Clan have always stung on the public.
There are several MIA individuals on Legendary Weapons, but it does not take away from the ripping verses from every person that did show up. Legendary Weapons is not for the Hip-Hop faint of heart, but isn’t as matchless as other Wu chamber musik either.
