Was that line clever or a dis to himself? Brush the dust off that classic debut Wu Tang album. You just reminded us of how long you been around.
A good dis. But a bad move. I'd say that right now, the GZA (pronounced "Jizza") is more relevant than 50 Cent. And that's pretty not-so-damn-relevant.
"One of the most renowned and continually relevant hip-hop emcees of all time, GZA returns with his long awaited fifth solo album, "ProTools." An original member of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan, GZA has established himself as a perennial force in hip-hop over his 13+ year solo career. Recently, GZA's contributions have driven the phenomenal success of the 2008 Wu-Tang Clan reunion album "8 Diagrams"...
The album's first leak track, "Paper Plate," finds GZA going in hard at a Vitamin Water mogul on this ihiphop.com exclusive.
Spitting 104 bars of straight heat, GZA cuts the legs out from under the G-Unit impresario, reminding us all how sweet beef on wax really sounds."
Whoever wrote this is a liar. 8 Diagrams has to be one of the biggest disappointments of 2007.
And that GQ jab was funny, by the way. Remember that famous pose?
This "beef" is not new, but rather a continuation of a slight back-and-forth that went down some months ago. So why is GZA resuming the madness? Well, it seems like old dogs are learning new tricks. Everyone knows that Fif picks someone to temporarily "beef" with before he drops an album. How do you dis someone using their formula?
SMH. We'll see where The "Genius" goes with this one.
