It feels like most of Wu-Tang has spent the last couple years walking around in a state of utter boredom. Releasing tracks to appease fans and occasionally hitting the mark just enough to give everyone hope that they are actually, no fooling, back for real this time. But this? Everyone sounds hyped to be recording this song, but no one more than Raekwon, who goes off on some crazy shit about being buried in Africa with whips and spears and diamonds. This is what these dudes excel at: give them a beat (in this case a very RZA-esque off-kilter jam produced by Dilla), throw a kung-fu sample at the beginning and and then let them rap aggressive stream of consciousness for five minutes.
