“Soldier I, opened your eyes, notice the lies”

Rebel usually uses the shortened nick of “I” for INS. He will refer to his self as “Rebel I,” “Soldier I,” “Sir I,” or slang like overthrow I. He does this a lot if you can catch it. Masta Killa referenced him on Deadly Melody as “Rebel I Soldier.”

He has exposed the truth and you now see it.

If you are a white male the judge may give you a lesser harsh sentence than if you are a young black male. Racial profiling.

Spider-Man can easily flee scenes by swinging from the webs he shoots out of his web-shooters. RZA is big on comic books and mythology.

Witty Unpredictable = WU
Talent And Natural Game = TANG

One of the many acronyms of the Clan. The main one used in songs. Another popular acronym is We Usually Take All Niggaz Garments. The name also signifies the sword sounds. Wu is the Wu-Tang sword swooshing through the air, tang is the clanging of the blade striking its' target. This is all referenced, of course, by leader RZA himself in The Wu-Tang Manual, the official book of the Clan (also referenced in many Wu songs).

You can spot Deck in his flashy Corvette downtown; he is there picking up drugs and heading back to where the fiends are to make those dollars. ‘Brown’ can refer to one of two drug types: cocaine mixed with smokeless gunpowder or heroin. It is usually a slang for heroin. ‘Back to the bids’ means where the fiends will try to score off him. So Deck is saying if you spot him downtown he is grabbing the heroin from his supplier and returning to the hood.

"With Fatal Guillotine," (Wu-Tang Clan – Hellz Wind Staff) | pending

Why are my suggestions being rejected when they are true?

GZA giving speeches to colleges and crafting Dark Matter without curses teaching the youth on space and science has deepened his lyrics on a whole ‘nother level, to which some Wu fans may completely mis-comprehend.

"[Verse 4: GZA]" (Wu-Tang Clan – Keep Watch) | pending

Regarding the above comment, this is kind of what a lot of people are saying about GZA nowadays. 50 Cent called him out for being a grandpa that still tries to rhyme as an old man. My best friend who we both share a likeness of the Wu says that he agrees with this and he sounded really tired on ProTools album. But man to the Wu fans, you need to understand the GZA. Every rhyme is a story with the Genius, which is how he gets that name. Every line in one of his verses connects as a whole story or metaphor or analogy to a story. A prime example of this is his verse on “Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)” from The W about the marathon runner which was a metaphor on GZA’s lyrical rhyme style.

To add to this theory, GZA has been hard at work crafting Dark Matter with his newfound mentality that not every rap needs curses and can have deeper meanings and teach the youth, on things such as space and science, which fits with the Wu-Tang’s themes. Because of this, GZA is on a deeper level even with this verse and we might not ever come to understand it. Such is the theme of The GZA.

"I'm killing instrumentals with that All So Simple Can It ..." (Wu-Tang Clan – Keep Watch) | pending

Man what is Raekwon doing, seriously. The last Wu album and he’s still sore about 8 Diagrams. Just finish out the legacy, G. Don’t hold up the Clan. I don’t blame RZA for calling him out. Raekwon’s attitude is the sole reason we didn’t get a true 20th anniversary release. Sure he been working on his FILA album but A Better Tomorrow could have been finished by November 2013. It’s Raekwon’s fault.

"Park Hill code is don't violate the family" (Wu-Tang Clan – Keep Watch) | pending

Could also refer to the Wu brothers who all grew up there and are now part of the Wu family. It’s a majority of the members: Inspectah Deck, Raekwon, U-God, Method Man, Cappadonna, and sometimes RZA (when he wasn’t living with Ghostface in Stapleton or out with his cousins GZA and ODB in Brooklyn).

"Slang reverend," (Wu-Tang Clan – For Heavens Sake) | pending

And when these three collaborate it is something special and takes us fans back to the Ironman and Cuban Linx days. Cappa refers to this threesome as Cuban Link Kings.

"RZA and True collide" (Wu-Tang Clan – For Heavens Sake) | pending

Training the Wu Elements, who played a bigger role on Wu-Tang Forever. Ironically, True Master would go on to produce at least ¼ of Cappadonna’s debut album.

"Poetry whirlpool," (Wu-Tang Clan – For Heavens Sake) | pending

All the different rhyme styles of the 9 members + Cappadonna blend together like a poetic whirlpool.

"Drop the stupid LP's everywhere" (Wu-Tang Clan – For Heavens Sake) | pending

The peak of their industry domination, as predicted and carried out by the Wu’s dictator and leader, RZA, the Abbott of the Clan, with his Five-Year Plan.

"Try to comprehend check out my new suit / Gods blend aim ..." (Wu-Tang Clan – For Heavens Sake) | pending

Check out my new suit — Cappa is known for his wardrobes. Not sure how it fits in these two lines about destruction, though.
