Rev. Burks & RZA - "Thank God"
For the first Wednesday in April, RZA dusts off a previously unreleased laidback yet aggressive previously unreleased track by Chicago's The Reverend William Burks for the Wu Wednesday series. I'm feeling the low key strings and atmospheric vibe RZA creates here; it's not your typical Wu-Tang beat but Burks is truly an underrated emcee that can makes wonder with the most minimalistic beat. The real question is when we're gonna get a full RZA/Burks collaboration, the chemistry and friendship is differently there and tracks like "Who's The Man" and "Chamber Of Fear" is among RZA's most natural and most amazing cuts the last few years.
