since we all seem to agree on this album being a classic, what about the track '7th chamber'do you prefer: 1 or 2?1 seems like a typical quirky rza joint (read: strange piano sample) but 2 is a head banger. the gza verse goes better with 2. plus 2 has that loud 808 at the end, which IMO should have been carried thru the whole song.1 or 2? ps. is it just me or did ODB (rip) seems VERY coherent on 36 chambers but out of his skull on 'return to the 36 chambers"?

    2 is way better imo.

    ODB seemed to be working out some things on Return. I remember seeing the video for Brooklyn Zoo and being like "This is brilliant, but what is his f'ing problem?" N*gga please was a terrible album. Dude had something about him though.
    RIP ODB

    ya one is a classic wu joint, and two is a head knocker for sure.







    ps. ODB is always crazy in my book. RIP.

  • 2 is way better imo.

    Whenever I listen to the album straight through i forget how much i like pt. 2, and when it gets to that track. Both are great pt. 2 is the best.

    having only heard this track once, i didn't 'get' it yet.. but two mc buddies of mine were like 'you know what this is about right?' and after seeing my dumbfounded look they proceeded to mc along with the video and that made all the difference. afterwards i was like:

    This is brilliant

    serious subliminal/liminal beef track

    plaese to explain...I can rap along with it and I don't necessarily know what you're talking about.

    I'm a pt.2 groupie as well.

    And ODB did seem more coherent, but that's why "Return" is so great. Just off-kilter, all over the place chaos in the best way possible.

    he did this track after he was shot.. and basically called out the cats who did the dirt. "You wanna react? Bring it on back..."

    ======================

    how, I don't even like your motherfuckin profile
    Give me my fuckin shit, CH-CH-BLAOW!
    Not seen and heard, no one knows
    You forget, niggaz be quiet as kept
    Now you know nothin; before you knew a whole fuckin lot
    Your ass don't wanna get shot!
    A lot of MC's came to my showdown
    To watch me put your fuckin ass lo-o-ow down
    As you can go, below zero
    without a doubt I've never been tooken out
    by a nigga, who couldn't figure
    Yo by a nigga, who couldn't figure
    Yo by a nigga, who couldn't figure (Brooklyn Zoo)
    how to pull a fuckin gun trigger
    I said, "Get the fuck outta here!"
    Nigga wanna get too close, to the utmost
    But I got stacks that'll attack any wack host
    Introducin, yo FUCK that nigga's name!
    My hip-hop drops on your head like ra-a-ain
    And when it rains it pours, cause my rhymes hardcore
    That's why I give you more of the raw
    Talent that I got will riz-ock the spot
    MC's I'll be bur-r-rnin, bur-r-rnin hot
    Whoa-hoa-hoa! Let me like slow up with the flow
    If I move too quick, oh, you just won't know
    I'm homicidal when you enter the target
    Nigga get up, act like a pig tryin to hog shit!
    So I take yo ass out quick
    The mics, I've had it my nigga, you can suck my dick
    If you wanna step to my motherfuckin rep'
    CH-CH-BLAOW! BLAOW! BLAOW! Blown to death
    You got shot cause you knock knock knock
    "Who's there?" Another motherfuckin hardrock
    Slackin on your mackin 'cause raw's what you lack
    You wanna react? Bring it on back...
