ive been playing with magnuts tying to change the wold as we know it

Hey friends!

My rear end got laid off so I've been devoting a bunch of time to my developer studies and working on a Wu Tang game. It's pretty simple but I also think it's pretty cool. I'd love it if you would help me out by listing your favorite Wu Tang verses. They don't have to be off of any of the main Wu Tang releases. Solo albums and guest appearances on other tracks are fair game.

Honestly a big driving force behind making this game was that I wasn't all that familiar with most of the guys in the group. I know Ghostface and ODB more from Mark Ronson tracks and the main Wu Tang track that I've listened to a bunch of times is "Gravel Pit."

Right now the game looks like this:



Space bar will play verses by the selected rapper. I'm going to implement an "audio only" mode where the portraits will be obscured so that the player has to determine the correct member based on voice/style alone.

Here's the result page:



I could name Beastie Boys and RTJ lyrics that I love all day long, but my Wu knowledge is lacking. Here are a couple that I really like:

RZA on GZA's "4th Chamber" :
Aiyo, camouflage chameleon, ninjas scaling your building
No time to grab the gun, they already got your wife and children

Method on "Gravel Pit" :
African killer bees blackwatch
On your radio, blowin out yo' watts

GZA on "Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)":
Run on the track like Jesse Owens
Broke the record flowing without any knowing
That my wordplay run the 400 meter relay
It's on once I grab the baton from the DJ

Thanks all, hope you're all healthy and happy

Oh yeah, currently I have 10 members in the game. I know with Killa Bees there are more but these are the ones I'm including.

Inspectah Deck
Ghostface Killah
Masta Killa
Ol' Dirty Bastard
Raekwon the Chef
U-God
RZA
GZA / Genius
Method Man
Cappadonna

I also can't decide on what to call this thing. All of the puns like "Guess Wu" don't seem great. If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear em!

I'm hoping to convert this from Love/LUA to a format that can be hosted on a web page so that I can share this with all of you once it's a little further along. I think that's totally doable but if it isn't, I'll post a guide of how to download the files and a compiler that will run the game.

i'm excited 2 see it!

Maybe the only Cappadonna verse i can think of is on Winter Warz but it also has a part I really like

Lebanon Don, Malcolm X beat threat
CD massacre, murder to cassette

Prof. Crocodile



U-God's intro from Da Mystery Of Chessboxin is still sick 20 years later:
Raw I'm gonna give it to you, with no trivia
Raw like cocaine straight from Bolivia
My hip-hop will rock and shock the nation
like the Emancipation Proclamation


And the following bars by Inspectah Deck are also tight:
Well I'm a sire, I set the microphone on fire
Rap styles vary, and carry like Mariah


Actually you could probably put that whole song in the game. There's not a weak syllable in it.


thank you khanstant for the sigoblin! thanks to Sid Vicious for my early yobmas present! thank you khanstant for the sigoblin!

've lived a thousand times. I found out what it means to be believed.


GZA - Liquid Swords

In mic fights I swing swords and cut clowns
poo poo 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 poo poo to insert a fiend

poo poo gotta add another from Liquid Swords

GZA:

I'm on a Mission that niggas say is Impossible
But when I swing my swords they all choppable

Deep Glove Bruno

Feel the glove!


I like the method man hook from raekwon's ice cream:
Watch these rap niggas get all up in your guts
French vanilla, butter pecan, chocolate deluxe
Even caramel sundaes is getting touched
And scooped in my ice cream truck, Wu tears it up

from "Shame on a Nigga" meth again:
I put the fuckin' buck in the wild, kid, I'm terror, razor-sharp
I sever, the head from the shoulders, I'm better than my competta
You mean competitor? Whatever, let's get together

You're all awesome. Thanks for taking the time to help with this. I forgot about that line "but when I swing my swords they all choppable"

It's tricky to chop the verses into smaller chunks. Most of the guys have rhyming couples but then Donna and Masta Killa will come on and most of it doesn't rhyme or it all fits together into one long verse. RZA tries to lay down the most complicated verses he can come up with. Ghostface is tricky because he barely takes a breath between lines.

Method Man wants to help the player out. When Cappadonna calls himself "Vocabulary Don" he gives a hint out.

Please realise that I know next to nothing of Wu Tang Clan's music. I do, however, love this short film RZA and GZA appeared in. If you could see fit to reference it, that would be neato!


You see this fantastic sig? BYOB artist par excellence sk made that bad boy. Big thanks
Just straight
Thanks to Heather Papps for the party hat

whole verse by Inspectah Deck from Protect Ya Neck is pretty good imo:

I smoke on the mic like "Smokin' Joe" Frazier
The hell-raiser, raisin' hell with the flavor
Terrorize the jam like troops in Pakistan
Swingin' through your town like your neighborhood Spider-Man

So uhh, tick-tock and keep tickin'
While I get ya flippin' off the poo poo that I'm kickin'
The Lone Ranger, code red, danger
Deep in the dark with the art to rip the charts apart

The vandal, too hot to handle
You battle, you're sayin' "Goodbye" like Tevin Campbell
Roughneck, Inspectah Deck's on the set
The Rebel, I make more noise than heavy metal



sigs by the awesome Manifisto, Vanisher, City of Glompton, Pot Smoke Phoenix, Nut and Heather Papps!!- ty friends!

RZA from Tearz:

Check the script, me and the gods gettin' ripped
Blunts in the dip, forty dogs in my lip
Had a box, 'boom boom' the bass would blast
We was laughin' at all the girls that passed
Conversation, brothers had began to discuss
(Hey yo, Rob, remember that kid you bust?)
Aw yeah, he ran, but he didn't get far
'Cause I dropped him, hah hah hah hah hah ha

Not knowin' exactly what lied ahead
My little brother, my mother sent him out for bread
Get the Wonder, it's a hot day in the summer
Didn't expect to come across a crazy gunner
"Hey, Shorty, check it, run the bag and the dough!"
But he was brave, looked him in the eye, and said "No!"
Money splattered him, BOW! Then he snatched the bag
Hit his pockets, then he jetted up the Ave
Girls screamin', the noise up and down the block
(Hey, Rakeem!) What? (Your little brother got shot!)

I ran frantically, then I dropped down to his feet
I saw the blood all over the hot concrete
I picked him up, then I held him by his head
His eyes shut, that's when I knew he was…
Aw man! How do I say goodbye?
It's always the good ones that have to die
Memories in the corner of my mind
Flashbacks, of us laughin' all the time
I taught him all about the bees and birds
But I wish I had a chance to sing these three words

As I am thinking back on Wu-Tang lyrics I am realizing how good Inspectah Deck was on the albums, although IIRC his solo stuff kinda underperformed.

Agreed - his verse on C.R.E.A.M was also really good imo:

It's been twenty-two long hard years, I'm still strugglin'
Survival got me buggin', but I'm alive on arrival
I peep at the shape of the streets
And stay awake to the ways of the world 'cause poo poo is deep
A man with a dream with plans to make cream
Which failed; I went to jail at the age of fifteen

A young buck sellin' drugs and such, who never had much
Tryin' to get a clutch at what I could not touch
The court played me short, now I face incarceration
Pacin', goin' upstate's my destination
Handcuffed in the back of a bus, forty of us
Life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough

But as the world turned I learned life is hell
Livin' in the world no different from a cell
Every day I escape from Jakes givin' chase
Sellin' base, smokin' bones in the staircase
Though I don't know why I chose to smoke sess
I guess that's the time when I'm not depressed

But I'm still depressed, and I ask: what's it worth?
Ready to give up so I seek the old Earth
Who explained workin' hard may help you maintain
To learn to overcome the heartaches and pain
We got stick-up kids, corrupt cops, and crack rocks
And stray shots, all on the block that stays hot

Leave it up to me while I be livin' proof
To kick the truth to the young black youth
But shorty's runnin' wild, smokin' sess, drinkin' beer
And ain't tryin' to hear what I'm kickin' in his ear
Neglected for now, but yo, it gots to be accepted
That what? That life is hectic


But his solo stuff never really clicked for me much.

GZA from Duel of the Iron Mic:

Yo, picture bloodbaths in elevator shafts
Like these murderous rhymes tight from genuine craft
Check the print, it's where veterans spark the letterings
Slow-moving MCs is waiting for the editing

The liquid soluble that made up the chemistry
A gaseous element, that burned down your ministry
Herbal vapors and biblical papers
Smoking Exodus, every square yard is plush
gently caress the screw-faced photo sessions, facial expression
Leaves impression, try to keep a shark nigga guessing

Give crazy shouts, son, here's the outcome
Cut across the semi-gloss rhymes you floss
poo poo is outdated, just like neckloads of Sterlings
Suede-fronts, bell-bottoms, and tri-colored Shearlings

I ain't particular, I bang like vehicular homicides
On July 4th, from Bed-Stuy
Where money don't grow on trees and there's thieving MC's
Who cut-throat to rake leaves
They can't breathe, blood splash, rushing fast
Like running rivers, I be that whiskey in your liver

drat, Inspectah Deck from Duel of the Iron Mic too:

Adults kill for drugs plus the young bucks bust
Ducking handcuffs, throats get cut when dough rush
Out of town foes look shook but still pose
We move like real pros through the streets we stroll
Bullet holes lace the windows in one-six-oh
So control the avenues that's the dream that's sold
Building lobbies are graveyards for small-timers
Bitches caught in airports, Ki's in they vaginas

No peace, yo the police mad corrupt
You get bagged up, depending if you're passing the cut
Plus shorty's not a shorty no more, he's living heartless
Regardless of the charges, claims to be the hardest
Individual, critical thoughts, criminal minded
Blinded by illusion, finding it confusing

All of these cats kill it 24-7 but check this Inspectah Deck verse of the Czarface/MF DOOM record. The track is called "Bomb Thrown"

I warm it up like Kane in his prime
gently caress with us, you insane in the mind
You cowards way out of line
Money talk, boy you wastin' my time
You don't want to put the work in
You just want a taste of the shine
Real talk, so it's hard to trust
I'm in it for the long ride, like I drive a charter bus
Scars and blood, from the deadly bars I bust
In Czar we trust, the army buy they bombs off us
Blog about it naysayer, you can hardly doubt it
Who's the best? Who's the worst? We could argue hours
Runnin' through soldier field, I'm Jordan Howard
Nowadays they respect money more than power
Money, power, respect, we all want some
I ain't waitin', I needed it, one lump sum
Made men trade hands with young guns
They stopped manufacturin' the cloth that I'm cut from

Ass-penny

Really? I don't know if I've ever heard his solo poo poo but he kills it in Czarface and I've heard him on a few Blacastan tracks and I feel like he's rock solid.

I want to give a shoutout to the Eskimos
I want to give a shoutout to the submarines
I want to give a shoutout to the army, air force, navy marines
Know what I'm saying? Y'all playing my music
In the submarines and the boats
Play that poo poo know what I'm saying?
It's called traveling music busting ya rear end style
Yo Big Baby Jesus, know what I'm saying it's one love
I give a shout out to all the women

Ghostface in I Can't Go To Sleep:
The technique is ill, son, watch how I spill one
Peace to Biggie, 2Pac, Big L, and Big Pun
Havoc on the streets of Staten, snitches
House niggas, children watch as they produce the same pattern
Somebody raped our women, murdered our babies
Hit us with the cracks and guns in the early '80s
For those that murdered me shall stand before God
To fall at the hands of fate; then, out comes the rod
