Day 48 - Staten Island Ferry

One of the standout solo albums for Wu was GZA's Legend of the Liquid Sword.
The intro, which is pretty hard to find on youtube...can be heard on Grooveshark. Young Justice, who I assume is the voice, kills it with this:

"It was the summer of '77.
NewYork was just recovering from the riots due to the blackout.
HipHop was young and growing rapidly, it was during that time when my father would oftent make journeys accross waters...... The ferry, or the boat, as most called it, was a floatin' forum, for talent especially MC's, who would often battle while in route to the city. It was on the boat, where he would sharpen his sword on neighborhood MC's, preparing for the battles that were soon to come.."
