The 100 Best Wu-Tang Clan Songs

52. Ghostface Killah f/ Inspectah Deck, RZA, Raekwon, & Masta Killa "Assassination Day" (1996)

Producer: RZA
Album: Ironman
Label: Razor Sharp/Epic Street

Dialogue from The Usual Suspects ("You heard me you dumb fuck, there's no coke!") is the introduction to this slow-burning drama with menacing guitar strums that, due to Deck's verse, takes on the sinister imagery of a covert midnight invasion in a violence-ridden third world island (Rae's "final destination Haiti" reinforces that notion). Everyone is as sharp as they can be (RZA's "I stop producers' careers, their weak spot was their ears" only tells half the story; he's always been nice on the mic), but Masta Killa's methodical threats fit the gloomy mood to a tee.
