U-God's Resume #62, "Rock Steady"

--Official Stats--
Artists: Tony Touch feat. Method Man, Raekwon, and U-God
Song: "Rock Steady"
Producer: RZA
Album: The Piece Maker 2
Release Date: February 24, 2004

Tony Toca. I have high hopes for this shit. Lots of people I respect coming together for a common cause. That sentence was gibberish! TOCA!!!! So how can this be bad? It has Tony Touch's name on it, so this is on him:

"Rock Steady"

See? Good. Nice beat. Short. Raekwon sounds awake. Change ups. Good enough chorus (or a least good breaks between verses). Interesting song structure. Son killed it. All the sons killed it.

I think the stand out here is Method Man. Brah, work with Tony on your albums. He brings a lot better shit than your usual garbage production.

Now for U-God. He brings it rough. Sounds good on the beat. Nice job. Maybe too long (as usual)? I don't know. It's okay.

Hots on the shit, just so we can lock horns
Throw a package in the streets, get the block warm
Something happens when we meet, hit the block strong
Get it poppin' in your face, taste the popcorn
Now that we back on track, can't lose
My back gets huge, bitches Moulin Rouge
The way I move, the Cadillac, so smooth
Battle rap improve shit, light the fuse
Bruised off the booze liquor, doozy kicker
The dynamite style, shinin' lights still flicker
Wu-Tang stickers is a nuclear reaction
Tony Touch scratch the table, RZA on the back end
Pure, the talent, yes, yours truly
The brand combination of jazz, class and beauty
Here to do my duty, up another notch
The gospel according to rap is mega watts
Agenda never stop, dead center, mega hot
Go mop it up, go cop it when it drops..

IN CONCLUSION: Good song. TONY does it as usual. Dope Skills. Rocksteady style.

Track Score: 7/10
U-God’s Score: 7/10
Impact on Rep (+,-,=): None


Next Week: THE FUN MIGHT BE OVER. We have to start reviewing U-God's many appearances on the Hillside Scrambler's album called: "Ugodz-Illa Presents: The Hillside Scramblers". 12 WEEKS OF THAT. Oh, the first song is called "INTRO". Maybe we shouldn't prejudge. It might be tight.

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.

Someone's peeking at you!
