Genre: Pop, Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Genius; Producer (group): Geffen; Status: In Season

GZA’s lyrics reflect an imagination fired by cheap kung-fu flicks and a blurry sense of history. With its tight beat, Liquid Swords emphasizes the finesse with which GZA weaves his vocals over straightforward rhythms. In contrast to his hyperactive wordplay, the music is meditatively simple, but the combination works. B+
