Raekwon and Ghostface are scheduled to do battle on Verzuz on Saturday, March 20, 2021, at 8 PM ET, and we want to know who y’all got winning the battle.
Swizz and Timbaland have curated another epic battle between two iconic Wu-Tang members.
Raekwon’s Only Built For Cuban Linx (The Purple Tape) and Ghostface’s IRONMAN instantly came to mind when I first heard about this battle. Those two albums introduced Rae and Ghost to the world and immediately expanded their fan base.
I always felt Ghost’s visual intro into the rap world in the Wu-Tang video “Da Mystery of Chessboxin” was the illest because he wore a mask over his face in the video, and at that time not many people knew what he looked like because it was his first video appearance.
It also played into the title of the song.
Watch the video below:
Fast-forward 27 years from the time this video came out and the whole world is wearing face masks due to a nationwide pandemic.
This is going to be an amazing battle, but I must admit I’m rocking with my man Raekwon The Chef.
In my opinion, he is the better lyricist, and his albums resonated with me more than Ghostface albums did.
Which Wu-Tang member are you rocking with for Saturday night’s Verzuz battle?
