I know several people have created lists like this, but I haven't done one before. I thought to myself, how can I be such a big Wu-Tang fan and not create my own top 5. So below reveals my list in no particular order. Feel free to comment.
In my opinion I think the GZA has the dopest lyrics out of the clan. This album is not just an top solo effect from one of the clansmen but an hip hop classic! The production is dope, dark and grimy with ill lyrics from the GZA.
Ol' Dirty Bastard album cover is legendary just to start off with. I don't listen to this album for lyrics, I listen to be entertained by Dirty. Don't get it twisted, this album has some of the hardest and illest beats ever out of the Wu collection.
Raekwon released a super hip hop classic with his debut solo effect. It's so many bangers on this album that it isn't far when comparing this classic to other albums. The Purple Tape has an cult following and will forever be known as one of the greatest albums put together. Ghostface as the co-star didn't disappoint with his classic verses.
When I first heard 36th Chambers, Method Man was my favorite Wu member at the time. I couldn't wait til he released his solo album, I think he was the first member to release a solo album. Meth didn't disappoint with the songs "Bring The Pain", "All I Need" Remix ft Mary J. Blige, "Chef vs Meth", "Release Yo Delf" and "Biscuits". The production was dope as usual, I mean it's not bad having a legendary producer like the RZA providing the beats.
Tony Starks debut album is my favorite out of the Wu members. If I was placing these albums in order of which ones are the best, this would be at the second spot behind Only Built For Cuban Linx. I was so hyped off Ghostface appearance on Raekwon's album that I replayed this album over and over. How can anyone forget the song "Winter Warz" with Cappadonna memorable like 100 bar verse? Or "Motherless Child", "Black Jesus", "Poisonous Darts", "Assassination Day" thats just to name some, this is another Wu Solo Classic!
