The 100 Best Wu-Tang Clan Songs

82. Raekwon "Spot Rusherz" (1995)

Producer: RZA
Album: Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...
Label: Loud

"Spot Rusherz" is Raekwon doing dirt all by his lonely. The storytellin' rap Magellan takes us on a voyage chock-full of swinging diamond pendants and treacherous setups. "This nigga had mega ice on, Chips Ahoy," he says, and you start thinking about the cookies riddled with chocolate chips, and then visualize a dude rocking mad stones. Like most Wu narratives, this tale of robbery doesn't follow standard rules: First-, second-, and third-person accounts intermix. At any given time Rae is talking as himself or as another character in the story. In a standout moment, he tells the guy he just hijacked, "'Stop playin' Wu in the back,' smacked him wit the gat." To chastise a fictional figure for playing your group's music because you want to rob him is next-level MC thinking.
