Best Wu-Tang Clan Songs of All Time!

#25. I Can’t Go To Sleep – “I Can’t Go To Sleep” is how I’ve felt ever sense I’ve started this blog. I literally “can’t go to sleep” some nights because I have so many idea’s in my head, and the process to transferring them into words is a tiresome one… Anyways… What was I supposed to be talking about again???…

#24. Ghostface Killah – One – How many hip hop list am I fin to publish today? ONE… How many F#ck boys goin’ hate on the sh*t once it’s published? One… How many f#cks am I goin’ give once it’s published?… What was I supposed to be talking about again???…

#23. Method Man ft. Busta Rhymes – What’s Happenin’ – Is this even a Wu-Tang song? The qualifications for what is and isn’t a Wu-Tang song are so “jumbled” that i had a really hard time discerning what is and what isn’t Wu-Tang. Thus I decided that any song made from any member of Wu-Tang would qualify for this list. I care more about the music rather then all of the finite details associated with this list. That stuff is more for the people in the comment section’s of my articles to stress about…

#22. Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Brooklyn Zoo – “Shame on Ya” if you’ve ever ignored the greatness of O.D.B. In my opinion Ol’ Dirty Bastard was the heart and soul of the Wu-Tang Clan, and his death is the primary reason the group has struggled so much for the last 10+ years…

#21. Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off) – A lot rap fans don’t like the Wu-Tang albums after the first two, but their third and fourth albums have a lot of great music on them as well. I would even go as far to say that “The W” is my favorite Wu-Tang album. Am I crazy for feeling that way???…

#20. Shame On a N*gga – I feel like O.D.B was the M.V.P (or most valuable rapper) on that “36 Chambers” album. He provided so many memorable moments on that album. Ghostface, GZA, and Raekwon really didn’t start to “stand out” until they were given their own individual projects to “shine” on in my estimation…

#19. Can it Be All so Simple – I think this the most “underrated” Wu-Tang song of all time! You think that a song from the Wu’s classic debut album “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 chambers)” couldn’t be called underrated, but this is one of the most “slept on” track’s in Wu-Tang’s entire discography IMO…

#18. GZA ft. Method Man – Shadowboxin’ – I really love this track a lot! GZA’s “Liquid Swords” album was an absolute classic when it came out in 95′ (although i was only 5 years old at the time, so what the hell do i know)…

#17. Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing to F’ Wit – “Tiger Style!”… If you google search “tiger style” it will first show you a pair of “Scottish-Punjabi’s” or something to that effect, who make rap/folk music… How is it that clowns like this get “ranked” high on google searches, while my website’scan’t even “sniff” a “single page view” from google searches. The game is definitely “rigged” yo…  

#16. Method Man – Bring the Pain – If you think that this record is Method Man’s “best” song I wouldn’t necessarily disagree with you. Meth reused the “I came to bring the pain” line countless times after this. It was almost like an igniter to his brain to “go hard” on tracks at times. That “line”, and “smoking weed” are basically the two things that are most synonyms with Method Man the “entertainer”...

#15. Ghostface Killah – Mighty Healthy – In my “Kanye list” I said this…”New God Flow>Mighty Healthy”… Spending a week “reviewing” all of the Wu-Tang tracks again I have definitely changed my mind on this situation. “Mighty Healthy” is a “classic”, and I shouldn’t of desecrated it, end of story...

#14. Method Man – All I Need (Original) – There may be some controversy surrounding this pick because I decided to chose the “original” version  of this song over the ” hit radio” version. To the people who take issue with this decision I say this...

#13. Raekwon ft. Ghostface Killah, and Nas – Verbal Intercourse – I enjoy making bold proclamations on my list so here we go… NO ONE in the history of rap music has every “jumped” onto an instrumental better then Nas did on this song! The beat goes a “mile a second”, and the way that Nas keeps up with instrumental is nothing short of “super human”…

#12. Ghostface Killah ft. Cappadonna, and U-God – Winter Warz – Most people think that the “Supreme Clientele” is the best Ghostface album, but if you can’t tell by now i’m not like most people. I like “Ironman” more, shoot me…

#11. Reunited – Violin’s have never really been “a thing” in hip hop music, but as this song can attest to, it definitely could bring something different and new to the “table”. Lets be honest, no instrument is more “gay” then the flute, and y’all have been “swallowing that up” (figuratively and literally probably), so why not embrace the worlds second “gayest” instrument, the violin?… (Disclaimer: I do not discriminate against gay people, but a decent portion of rap fans are still “in the closet”. How do I know this?… Once people stopped memorizing the “rap lyrics” of a song, and instead started memorizing the “dance moves” associated with that song/music video, i could tell that the whole “culture” was starting to become very “suspect”)…

#10. Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Shimmy Shimmy Ya – Honestly, Who doesn’t “Like it raw”? You would have be “gay” or something to not like it “raw”… (Disclaimer: I do not discriminate against gay people, but a decent portion of rap fans are still “in the closet”. How do I know this?… Pretty soon the last award given out in the Grammy’s in the rap category will be for “best hairstyle” or “best meme”. Quit focusing on all of the gossip shit surrounding rap, and start focusing on the music again! Remember what Jay-Z once said… “jealousy is a female trait”… and most of y’all act like females, so stop it! Oh and I don’t hate gay people, that’s important to remember)…

#09. GZA – Liquid Swords – Out of all of the Wu-Tang members I feel like GZA had the most “underutilized” potential. In 95′ no one was “badder” on the mic then this man. He’s lyrically up there with MF Doom when it comes to pure “lyrical prowess”, but there was just something “missing” in his later work that left it feeling flat by comparison… I think it was probably the lack of “RZA beats” that hurt the “second half” of his career the most…

#08. Raekwon ft. Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and CappaDonna – Ice Cream – Definitely one the funnest Wu-Tang songs out there. “Gravel Pit” and “Uzi (Pinky Ring)” are also really fun Wu tracks that I couldn’t find a place for on this list , so I figured that I might as well “shout them out” right now…

#07. It’s Yourz – “Lyrically” the best Wu-Tang song ever! 

#06. Triumph ft. Cappadonna – Did you know that Cappadonna was originally supposed to be an “official” member of the Wu-Tang Clan, but he was incarcerated during the development of “The 36 Chambers” album. Cappadonna did not appear on the first album, and was thus relegated to being the “unofficial” 10th member of the Wu-Tang Clan for eternity…

#05. Method Man – I can never understand it when a rapper’s “first” notable song becomes the best of their entire catalog. You would think that a “MC” would be able “top” a song that they wrote when they were in your late teens/early twenties, but for most of these guys this just isn’t the case…

#04. Da Mystery of Chessboxin’ – “I got a list, here’s the order of my list that it’s in,
It goes”… Ghostface, Raekwon, O.D.B and Method, RZA from Gravediggaz, GZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and then Masta Killah, “So when” Cappadonna doesn’t get “put on this list, the shit does not offend me”… You see, technically  Cappadonna isn’t even an “official” Wu Member so why should that offend me, ya know…

#03. Raekwon – Incarcerated Scarfaces – If you think you’re a “hip hop fan” and you know nothing about the Wu-Tang Clan you’re “playing” yourself”. Nothing is more “hip hop” then Wu-Tang’s music! Not 2Pac, Biggie, Nas, etc… Nothing!..

#02. C.R.E.A.M. – This is my favorite Wu track of all time! It was the first Wu-Tang song that i ever heard, and it has remained to be my very favorite Wu-Tang song  a whole week later… That’s the testament of a really good song…(This is a joke by the way… or is it…) AHHH Boga Boga!!! (or what ever people write when their trying to scare you)… Man this “annotation” really went “off the rails”… Moving on…

#01. Protect Ya Neck – The Question: How many Wu-Tang Clan songs feature all of members performing at their “very best”? The Answer: not many, besides this track of course…
