You are late

"listen, if you are trying to enjoy this album and you are not in your 30's, then forget about it. if you did not cop this album in 1991, forget about it. you will not understand. i read some clown say the beats are old, the music is not this it is not that.......but for east coast 1991, the music was what it was."
GZA at his FINEST, hip-hop in it's RAW essense!!!

"After hearing Liquid Swords {GZA's second cd} 1000 times, I needed some new GZA material. I couldn't find "Words" anywhere but here! It satisified my desire for new or old GZA material, with raw tracks like Pass the Bone and Life of a Drug Dealer. If you like GZA, you'll love this cd. But DO NOT expect the Wu-Tang sound on this album! It was not produced by RZA and does not sound like 36 chambers or Forever albums. It is raw, rugged hip-hop in it's finest hour! Pick this cd up!!!"
Proper Lyrics, before his time.

"This album is from 1991 so don't expect to put it in and expeiriece fresh Rza beats because you won't. The closest you'll get to a Wu tang beat will be on the first track, 'Pass The Bone'. The beats are repetative and the tunes are funky old school [stuff], but the lyrics make up for every bad beat and fuzzy loop. The Genius was the only rapper in the industry in the early 90's that was actually aware of the drug and prostitution problems in america. These lyrics are before his time and frightened people who listened to them. Despite that, it's still not as good as his masterpeice 'Liquid Swords', but comes pretty close. Buy it."
