    Rza is an amazing producer but he isn't Premo.

    Premo is the GOAT.

    Premier is on another level. No disrespect to RZA, great producer.

    Then again...Premier...









    Ok, ok. I give it to Premier due to "Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers" being one of my favorite tracks ever, in addition to his other stuff. RZA is still that shit though. Both classics.

    Lol aren't you the guy that disputed the Beastie Boys greatness in Hip Hop history because you don't consider them "Hip hop" and got bashed for it.

    Goddamn the purple tape goes so fucking hard.



    7 years old with my walkman in school listening to it nonstop. My mom was a DJ and that was like the highlight of my days when she would bring tapes and CDs home for my brother so I could steal them. Between Raekwon and the Goodie Mob, that's how I got hooked on rap.

    I know what you mean. I pick Rza cuz of those early wu albums. And it just seems like he is doing more complex stuff with his beats than Premo. But I could be wrong.

    An hour from now, I prob would go with Premo.

    These were classic albums from Premo no question:





    Im thinking premo takes it lol

    Just skip :45 and listen Method's part. Beat was ridiculous
