The 100 Best Wu-Tang Clan Songs

55. GZA f/ Killah Priest & Res "Beneath the Surface" (1999)

Producer: Inspectah Deck
Album: Beneath The Surface
Label: MCA

There's a powerful serenity to the title track from GZA's third album. Engulfed by the soothing aural waves, both GZA and Killah Priest get their thinking caps on and share some personal thoughts about the universe. The cryptic verses are up to those listening to decipher, but an (apparently) obvious line, like when GZA says, "Success is freedom," is the type of lesson you hope you learn before it's too late. While it may be called "Beneath the Surface," this thoughtful poem set to music will leave you feeling like you've been to the stars and back.
