Album: Liquid Swords Label: Geffen/MCA Producer: RZA Cold Cases: Pete Rock's "Half Man, Half Amazin"
This is a perfect example of style trumping content. On paper, GZA has the lyrically superior lines on "Shadowboxing." But sometimes that's not enough. Method Man laces this beat so incredibly you almost wish it was his song alone. In fact, considering the fact that Meth spits two verses and GZA only spits one, we get the feeling that The Genius was well aware that Tical was killing the track and was gracious enough to let his Wu brother do so.
