our score: 4.0 out of 5.0
The newest member of the Wu-Tang
Clan has already put out his solo effort. Cappadonna flexes
his skills on The Pillage. He already has three hits
off of it, and if he releases more, I'm sure they'll be hits too.
"Slang Editorial," the first track, is one of these
hits. It's about Donna's plight to get into the Clan, "one
thirty, Cappuccino the great, sittin' at the table where the Gambinos
ate. Buildin' Wu-Tang Clan concentrate, bounce on a track Donna
crack it like a safe..." The next two tracks are also
hits off the debut. "Pillage" featuring Killa
Bamz and "Run" are both good tracks.
"Supa Ninjaz" featuring
U-God and Method Man is one of the better songs. It
brings their veteran talent in. Another phat song is "Splish-Splash,"
which has a more offbeat feel. The only downside to this
song is it is only 2 minutes long.
A few tracks later comes my second
favorite track, "Dart Throwing." It features two
seasoned vets, Raekwon and Method Man. With their talent
and Cappadonnas, this track is butta. Cappa even includes
a love song, "Young Hearts." It features
Blue Raspberry on vocals. My favorite song on the cd is
"Pump Up Ya Fist." Its simple but it rocks.
Cappadonnas lyrical talents really shine on this track,
which also features Tekitha.
For a debut album, The Pillage
has a lot of tracks, and almost every one of them is tight.
