The RZA- Tragedy
Witness the candy break down, son. Here comes that rain again.
Edit: That post was sorta pathetic. So let's start over.
Admittedly, I have a tendency to begin sentences with lenghty subordinate clauses. After creating a verbal backdrop with an introductory clause, I usually follow with a short declarative statement. For example: "Responsible for founding the Wu-Tang clan and defining its complicated chess square kung-fu kicksology-numerology-mythology, the RZA also stands as one of hip-hop's most influential beat-makers." While it can work if used sparingly, this techinque gets old quick.
The same is not true of the RZA's music. He's mostly sticks to the scratchy soul funk sample, but he switches styles just enough so it works EVERY time. RZA: pathos for days, rhymes for weeks. This blog: pathetic at times, but still it speaks!
