5. Can It Be All So Simple - Raekwon
Rae and Ghost Unite for the first time in recorded history. The Chef had a simpler style on the first Wu-Tang album, but as Raekwon developed through his career, he became a much more complex MC, especially on Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Ironman, and Wu-Tang Forever. Ghost was considered one of the illest in the group early on, but Rae takes the cake here. From his opening bars to shooting “that’s that shit! in the bloodstream”, his verse has more animation and a wider range of flows than Ghost flexes in his nonetheless impressive second verse.
