Album: Liquid Swords
"Shadowinboxin'" is officially a GZA track, but it's Method Man who gets to drop two of the three verses. "All in together now/Things are gettin' good, lookin' better now," raps Meth, echoing one of the earliest Wu-Tang routines created by cousins RZA, GZA, and ODB back in the mid-'80s. The phrase has been mentioned by nearly all Wu members at some point in their respective catalogs. "Protect ya neck, my sword still remains Imperial/Before I blast a mic, RZA scratch off the serial," spits GZA in the second stanza, which is partially a reference to Force of the Imperial Master, the unit that would later be renamed the All In Together Now Crew.
