RZA & Inspectah Deck “You Can’t Stop Me Now”

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

When clashing the anticipation behind last fall’s Wu-Tang Clan release and the forthcoming RZA solo there is really little comparison; while RZA is the strength behind the group’s beat his solo works aren’t nearly as highly regarded as even the sixth chamber in the ‘Tang manifest. That being said, despite some critical praise last year’s return of the Shaolin kings’ release came with a great sense of deficit, especially considering the album’s lack in pure beat – a stronghold that RZA has kept consistent even through the post-Forever days. “You Can’t Stop Me,” however, offers what may be the best non-8 Diagrams cut in the following months from any of the group’s members, even including the cuts from The Big Doe Rehab. No matter what materializes from RZA’s release this track serves purpose in that it proves that despite his taunts that this will be his last solo, the man is far from done.
