GZA – Pro Tools

Wu Tang’s GZA returns with a superb record that reinforces his street literary. Pro Tools, GZA’s fifth solo album, showcases his signature style: delivering moody and mysterious rhymes over stark beats. “Path of Destruction” glorifies the dark side of street struggles. “Short Race” narrates a life of a kid who is a victim of abuse. “Paper Plate” takes shots at 50 Cent: “One verse will shatter your spine and crush your spirit / No matter what, you still window-shop for lyrics.” With solid track to track, Pro Tools marks a strong comeback from the lyrical Genius.
