Wu Tang Clan in Chicago

No RZA! Nothing from 8 Diagrams! As Ghostface and Raekwon took the stage Saturday night at Chicago's Metro to the strains of "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin Ta F' Wit", the leaders of the potential secession from the ranks of their ramshackle crew made two things pretty clear: the Wu-Tang Clan we'd all been fucking with for a decade and a half were in the building, and that weird new "hip-hop hippie" shit had no place on that stage.

Raekwon and Ghostface are fantastic, obviously... but I'm sorry, they wouldn't be where they are today without RZA. 8 Diagrams is fucking killer--especially considering all the bullshit surrounding the making of it--and RZA is on par with them as far as straight rapping (I know most would disagree). Gravediggaz and Bobby Digital.... mmmhmm.

Rae and Ghost's albums w/o RZA in the mix just aren't very good. The new Wu-Tang w/o RZA would not have been very good either.

I was at the show, and let me say they did not miss a beat without rza.
