Producer: RZA
Album: Tical
Label: Def Jam

The weird "Mr. Sandman" is a feverish dream that draws inspiration from the old 1954 song. This creepy composition (check the unnerving singing by Blue Raspberry) has the Ticallion Stallion bigging up the Five Percent Nation while sneakily telling nonbelievers to eat a dick: "Peace to the number 7/Everybody else get the 4-9-3-11." Wu affiliate Carlton Fisk damn-near steals the show, paraphrasing pulp hero the Shadow ("What evil lurks in the hearts of men?") before continuing with a vivid story about a shootout with Rastas. Unfortunately Fisk wasn't able to capitalize on his Tical appearances, as rumor has it he got locked up not too long after this.
