The 100 Best Wu-Tang Clan Songs

11. Wu-Tang Clan "Can It Be All So Simple" (1993) / "Can It Be All So Simple (Remix)" (1995)

Producer: RZA/RZA
Album: Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)/Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...
Label: Loud
Wu-Tang Clan "Can It All Be So Simple"
Raekwon f/ Ghostface Killah "Can It All Be So Simple"
Raekwon and Ghostface Killah's first duet takes you on a journey to the "good ol' days" when they were "ignorant and mad young" and tells of how they eventually ended up in a life of crime. They use mad slang and various dope methods to describe shit, like when Rae confesses, "Pops was a fiend since 16/Shootin' that 'that's that shit!' in his bloodstream."

The unstoppable duo take time to give shout-outs to Jeeps, Land Cruisers, MPVs, and "niggas who do drive-bys," all while a relentless, thumping bassline and choice vocals from "The Way We Were" by Gladys Knight & the Pips keep listeners enthralled. The remix featured all-new lyrics, an amped-up reworking of the original track, and another well-made cinematic skit on top, this time recounting the early '90s incident when GFK was supposedly shot in the neck and arm for real.
