It shouldn't come as any surprise to anybody who has listened to the Wu over the years that GZA and RZA are both brilliant. RZA's breadth and depth of knowledge across a wide spectrum of disciplines is evident not only from his music, but his interviews, writings, etc.

As for the greatest solo Wu album, I am torn. It's a good problem to have because there are so many good ones. I could go back and forth between Rae's Cuban Links and GZA's Liquid Swords. Both of those albums are so good that I don't ever skip a single track. The 2 Bobby Digital records definitely have tracks to skip (that Black Smampoo shiat should have made it to the cutting room floor for sure), but there are tracks that rank among some of my favorites of all time. NYC Everything with RZA and Meth is ridiculously hard. When RZA is on his game, I think he is one of the best MC's to ever pick up a mic.

It's pretty amazing to look back in retrospect and just marvel at how much talent was in this one group of guys. To be talking about how great GZA and RZA are without mentioning guys like Ghost, Meth, and ODB - all of whom are/were absolute superstars in their own right - is kind of funny when you think about how they all started out in the same group together.

John Buck 41: FunkOut: John Buck 41: abhorrent1: Ay the weekly NDTCS thread.

No shiat. I'd say "gimme a break" but I don't think his fanboys here on Fark would take the time to take his dick outta their mouths to do so.

It's terrible, these people all talking about this guy, especially when the average American doesn't know who he is.

Why would/should they?

Why should people know about one of the most impassioned, convincing, and engaging advocates for the pursuit of pure science America has? Yeah, dude, no idea.

Ishkur: I like his comments on how all the new rappers coming up are uninteresting and only have themselves to talk about. No more stories or interesting viewpoints incorporating sophisticated subjects like science and philosophy, it's all just naval-gazing bravado about gang life with texturized sound effects (I blame Soulja Boy).

I hate that line, you can go to DatPiff.com right now and get a new album every day by a smart, interesting rapper with great, layered beats for free. Or you can get an ignorant rapper with club beats. Or you can get a rapper that is smart with club beats. Etc., every day. There are plenty of intelligent albums coming out now too, I mean Big Boi put a major label release out this week with songs featuring Wavves and Little Dragon for chrissakes. If you don't like new stuff, you have more exposure to older stuff than ever before. I can buy literally any album ever right now with no DRM. There is archives.org wiht a huge live music selection for free. We live in the golden age of music!

Are they talking about why PBS and Nova have gotten so dumbed-down over the last decade?
