One of the Wu-Tang Clan several solo albums has received high appreciation from Killer Mike, who gave it a perfect score.

The Grammy-winning rap veteran replied over the weekend to a message that was making the rounds on X (previously Twitter) and asked people what they thought of GZA’s Liquid Swords.

Without hiding his admiration for the record, Killer Mike answered with a straightforward “10/10.”

The Hurry The rapper from Jewels wasn’t the only one to compliment him; one commenter said, “To me, it’s the best Wu solo project.” Although I adore OB4CL, this is somewhat superior.

From the first song to the last, according to another. Traditional.”

Liquid Swords, GZA’s second solo album, was released in 1995. It was the follow-up to his widely-forgotten Words from the Genius, which was published in 1991 under his old stage name The Genius.

It was also the Wu-Tang Clan fourth solo album. Along with Method Man’s Tical, Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version, and Ghostface Killah’s Ironman, these albums made up the group’s first wave of critically praised recordings.

Liquid Swords, which has beloved songs like “Liquid Swords,” “4th Chamber,” and “Shadowboxin,” achieved success in the Billboard 200 chart and has subsequently been awarded a platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America.

In 2018, after Kendrick Lamar won the Pulitzer Prize for DAMN, Wu-Tang leader RZA reflected on the album’s impact and said that GZA should have received the prestigious prize as well for his writing on Liquid Swords.
