Many self proclaimed genius' are usually far from exhibiting any ingenuity. In regards to the Wu-Tang Clan, most usually the derivative monikers that each MC goes by are usually on point in defining each members characteristics (i.e. Method Man = Iron Lung, RZA = The Abbot , ODB = Doctor) the GZA is no exception to this. Serving as a follow up to the classic "Liquid Swords", "Beneath The Surface" is a cryptic LP worthy of extensive replay value to catch every word that this Genius and his guests have to say.
Now, some things that can be picked up from GZA on this outing during the first listen is that Ice Cube was not the first one to have a pyroclastic flow, schools that represent a fast track into the music industry are full of shit (wish I would have heard this LP before I ever attended M.I. in Hollywood, a school full of fraud for anyone reading) , and just by the way "Beneath The Surface" is structured, hip-hop, at it's finest, can be more raw and informative than any syndicated news program.
Thus, keep the tube off, shred the newspaper, and spin "Beneath The Surface" if you would rather hear words from a Genius rather than that of a sheeple regarding the world today.
