GZA ft. Tom Morello - The Mexican

  • Artist: GZA
  • Track: The Mexican
  • Album: Dark Matter

Today may mark GZA’s first solo feature on our front page, but do you really need an introduction to the living rap legend and Wu-Tang member? If the answer’s yes, consider your status as a hip-hop head revoked. Assuming you are familiar, you already know just how excited you should be about The Mexican, single numero uno off his first album in seven years. On this cut, God Zig-Zag-Zig Allah flows over an uncredited beatsmith’s flip of Babe Ruth’s oft-sampled record by the same name. The guitar stylings of Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello round out the record. Like what you're hearing? Then keep it locked for more new singles leading up to the fall arrival of Dark Matter.
