This tells me you're not a Shaw Brothers fan.

Doesn't deserve the hate. If you're a shaw brother's fan, you might see some things missing. If you're a RZA fan, you see that it's half Shaw, half RZA fantasy. He's corny in a different sorta way. I'll definitely watch this.
YouTube- RZA - Tragedy (Best Quality)
You just posted the perfect proof that RZA's lyrics are random words of garbage. Just because words rhyme don't mean they make sense going together in a sentence.
Also...while I could ignore it in my youth...the constant preaching of 5% garbage is totally useless and has gotten very old.
With RZA, people either love his style or hate it.
agreed. I really like some of his older beats.
Personally I'v been enjoying the afro samurai soundtracks quite a lot, more so than most any other wu related works I've listened to. As for the movie I'll be absolutely shocked if it manages not to at least be seriously entertaining even if it's not exactly "good".

NJM...I would argue again that this is a great example of RZA stringing words together that don't make sense. He sounds like he is smart...right up until the point you actually read what he is saying.
"Yo, yo, the A-1 sauce, the Divine Force
My mind blind force is known to blow time off course
Even, if I rode around the world on a blind horse
Strapped down, I'd still get my point across
Allah is father of all
You debate whether big, whether small
Whether short, whether tall
Whether dense, whether length
Whether strength, whether width
Either man, animal, bird or fish
Whether, black or white, more shapes than snowflakes
Existin', everywhere but you still can't locate
The man of steel couldn't bend me
Time couldn't end me
Even the great devil Satan that tried to befriend me
Understand the equality, God in a bodily
Form, lettin' my knowledge be born
Lettin' my knowledge be born..."
Seriously? WTF is he talking about? A-1 sauce?
Let's compare those lyrics to Immortal Technique who also tries to drop some knowledge in his rhymes:
"The voice of racism preaching the gospel is devilish
A fake church called the prophet Muhammad a terrorist
Forgetting God is not a religion, but a spiritual bond
And Jesus is the most quoted prophet in the Qu'ran
They bombed innocent people, tryin' to murder Saddam
When you gave him those chemical weapons to go to war with Iran
This is the information that they hold back from Peter Jennings
Cause Condoleeza Rice is just a new age Sally Hemmings
I break it down with critical language and spiritual anguish
The Judas I hang with, the guilt of betraying Christ
You murdered and stole his religion, and painting him white
Translated in psychologically tainted philosophy
Conservative political right wing, ideology
Glued together sloppily, the blasphemy of a nation
Got my back to the wall, cause I'm facin' assassination
Guantanamo Bay, federal incarceration
How could this be, the land of the free, home of the brave?
Indigenous holocaust, and the home of the slaves
Corporate America, dancin' offbeat to the rhythm
You really think this country, never sponsored terrorism?
Human rights violations, we continue the saga
El Savador and the contras in Nicaragua
And on top of that, you still wanna take me to prison
Just cause I won't trade humanity for patriotism"
Now...you may disagree w/ his political views...but do you notice how he isn't just stringing words together that rhyme?
Writing RZA rhymes are easy:
But not able to be eaten,
Like slaves of old,
exiting from Eden,
far from heathens,
indoctrination always weakens,
the forces of godliness,
sticking shorties on the weekends...
What am I talking about? Who the **** knows? But don't rhyming words sound great?
Shaw Brothers was the ****. Check out their lavish productions in the 70's for the real ****.

As to perfect synch yep Shaw had some of the Best dubbing work of the time period. The real flaw was unlike America where you stick with Shrek, Toy story or what not, They used the same voices for every damn movie. Had to, you didn't make millions. No, it was considered low tier work here and abroad.
