After all nine living members showed up to "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" last night to perform a new song, The Wu-Tang Clan have now shared the official version of "Ron O'Neal." Taken from their upcoming album A Better Tomorrow, the song features verses from Method Man, Ghostface Killah, RZA and a sung hook (most likely by their frequent collaborator Nathaniel).
The beat is classic RZA, with in-the-pocket percussion, organ, horns and an eastern-sounding guitar driving the powerful comeback track. The hook may seem a little out-of-place when you consider The Wu's gritty beginnings (where a few aggressive words shouted in unison usually counted as a hook), but we'll allow you to be the judge of that.
A few staircase murders, some burners don't blam right
Guns that peek around the wall, you better stand tight
4X, AKs, wylin' in lobbies
Fuck around and get spun like a DJ
CSI traumatized by viewin' the instant replay
