The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Skits

27. GZA "Hell's Wind Staff/Killah Hills 10304"" (1995)

Producer: RZA
Album : Liquid Swords
Label : Geffen


RZA's clandestine meeting with the mysterious Mr. Grieco is interrupted by Noodles (Masta Killa) who has a phone call from Tony Starks informing Bobby Steels that an associate of Grieco's—one Don Rodriguez from the Bronx—is at the police precinct "singin' his fuckin' ass off like a fuckin' bird." Through it all, GZA's going off in the background, riffing about the Hell's Angels while random singing can also be heard. In this skit, RZA creates the feeling that all the action is taking place in some hot tropical locale, while the slight sniffing sounds hint at the presence of cocaine. It's like a weirdo episode of Miami Vice starring the Wu.
