Favourite Song on Album:
Listen to This Album When You’re:
A Wu-Tang fiend digging through all the emcees work.
Thoughts on Album Cover:
Pretty simplistic, looks like a mixtape more than an album.
Want to Own on Vinyl?:
If it was real cheap sure, but probably not.
Put It On The Line did two things for me: 1. Reassured me that even the most obscure Wu-Tang projects can contain gold. 2. Inspired me to listen to more Ghostface Killah. Trife Da God is by no means a bad emcee, he simply can’t be if he’s part of the Wu-Tang Clan, but he is constantly out-shined by Ghostface on Put It On The Line. Perhaps it’s my personal bias that makes me automatically gravitate towards anything Ghostface touches, but it’s a rare day that I hear someone say that Trife is their favourite Wu Tanger. It’s classic old school grimy hip-hop, sounding like martial art masters facing off with a ghetto backdrop, it’s not the best Wu-Tang project, but it’s far from the worst.
