Wu-Tang Clan – Protect Ya Neck – Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

This is how Wikipedia describes this song:

“Protect Ya Neck” is the debut single by American hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan, released in 1992. The song is featured on the group’s debut studio album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). It is produced by RZA and features eight of the original nine Wu-Tang members.

“Protect Ya Neck” was the first Wu-Tang song bringing together the original four members and four others (excluding Masta Killa, who had not yet joined). It was originally released December 14, 1992, as part of the “Protect Ya Neck”/”After the Laughter Comes Tears” single by Wu-Tang Records. When it created an underground buzz, Wu-Tang signed with Loud Records and released it on May 3, 1993, with “Method Man” on its B-side. That single sold 10,000 copies.[2]

The album version of the song (even the ‘explicit’ versions of the album) is edited to scratch out all profanity, save for repeated use of the word nigga. On the original recording version of the song, Inspectah Deck’s verse came second, but RZA changed it to first in the order. The original beat was totally different, and all Wu-members were in a different order. RZA just said “I just need y’all voices” and Wu entered the studio the next morning and RZA arranged everything, including the karate chops. The person who rings into a radio station at the start of the song was from an interview Wu did. Wu did the interview on a radio station, WPGC in Washington, DC. Different segments of the same interview are placed at different parts of the album.[3]

Fat Joe – My Lifestyle

My Lifestyle

Surprisingly, my first time hearing or knowing about this song was on a recent NPR Tiny Desk concert with Fat Joe on the NPR Music YouTube channel, I am somewhat surprised that I do not remember hearing this song back in the day.

I am not a fan of explicit lyrics, but some songs like this have a good beat & flow; I wish that they would clean up the lyrics though.

Aesop Rock – Jumping Coffin

Aesop Rock – Jumping Coffin

I caught part of the music video for this song (Jumping Coffin by Aesop Rock) during a commercial break during the latest Toonami, and so I looked on YouTube for it so that I could hear the entire song.

I did not find the music video, but they did have the full song.
