U-God's Resume #60, "Shaolin Brew"

--Official Stats--
Artists: Wu Tang Clan
Song: "Shaolin Brew"
Producer: RZA
Album: DJ Drank's Greatest Malt Liquor Hits
Release Date: December 15, 2002

Is this a real thing? I don't mean the song (I remember hearing it on a commercial or something). I mean is the album real? Where would someone buy that crap? It looks like shit. Speaking of shit, listen to this:

"Shaolin Brew"

DJ DRANK! You b-hole. Where did you get this? Did you make money off of this? Is DJ Drank your real name?

Well, I've never heard that version before. It sounds awful. This is what I heard (and it has no U-God):

That's better? I guess? At least it souns better. "It's a living." - Wu Tang (getting money from somewhere because you know that Loud or whoever wasn't paying them). I don't have an issue with this commercial. Gifted rappers doing their craft for money. No problem this time. Plus, it's okay and short. I wouldn't call any one's lines good. And I couldn't understand what U was talking about, and I don't want to know. St. Ides. Fine. Wait! The internet knew the lyrics, duh:
Crack the bottle of the St. Ide's, sippin to those
Who don't realize that drinkin ain't only to be drunk
You can't drive, keep my peoples alive
And if the saint don't know you from a can of paint
Pretty bad.

IN CONCLUSION: Drank responsibly.

Track Score: 0/10
U-God’s Score: 0/10
Impact on Rep (+,-,=): The commercial from 1994 didn't help him (because he wasn't in it), and the DJ Drank shit definately didn't help him. So: NONE.

Next Week: We're really getting into the weird stuff now. DJ Mathematics album "Love, Hell or Right (Da Come Up)" has a U-God song, and it's called "Alwayz NY". It's something to look forward to, right?

About this series: “U-God’s Resume" is a series of posts which looks at each line of U-God’s entire career to determine if his status as ‘wack’ is justified (as labeled by internet morons). I think it is not. U-God is dope. We'll prove it. Leave it to the Tort Team.
