About Thomas

  • Rob

    one of my alltime favorite albums. you guys just keep getting better and better!

  • Lil Moz

    it’s the album with the track “triumph”i think ? one’s of my favorite wu tang’s beat.I think in triumph,there are a lot of things played.

  • Thomas

    This set is probably missing A LOT of samples. All of the sample sets we are putting out this month are missing things. Wanted to get rid of them and start fresh fo 09.

    We didn’t want to put this one out because there were many question marks with the listings. The breaks has pages upon pages of comments regarding this album.

    I personally have questions about: “Pathetique Sonata No. 8″ by Beethoven &
    “The End” by The Doors (first 45 seconds is the sample).

    But I think by putting this set out with what we know…maybe someone else can help bring light to some of the grey spots regarding this album.

    We don’t know everything…

    Enjoy what he have. Thanks to all!

  • Tokyo Cigar

    YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NO WAY. NO FUCKING WAY. Yo son you crazy 4 this one. Oh my God. Thank you for this.

  • MIDIMarc

    This album is THE reason I make beats

  • Kevin

    LMAO… how did I know we were gonna get this reaction from Tokyo? lololol…. Dude, you’re the biggest Wu-head I know! you’re gonna love the rest of the month then.



  • Phurcat

    Steubenville @ its finest!!!!
    4th Disciple is the reason started making beats. I keep tellin’ ya’ll, Wu is DEEEP rooted in Stubie. OHIO STAND UP!!!

  • Joe Smith

    Skeeter Davis’ “End of the World” is used for Cash Still Rules/Scary Hours

  • Thomas

    Thanks Joe. I found an album with that song on it. I just haven’t downloaded it yet. When I do I’ll put it up.

    One of the best double albums ever released. When this came out I think many people (including me) slept on disc 1. I have both the US and European release.

  • Bulldozed

    This is fucking off chain, thanks heaps to whoever put in the effort to gather this even though its missing a few golden samples, cheers!

  • Part083

    Where TF is Triumph? There’s garbage talk everywhere I look saying shit was played. Fine. Maybe the violins or whatever – don’t care. The beat is a breakbeat sample of some origin. What is it. This track is bouncing me off all over the city. Just bangs like thunder. “Certified chatterbox.”

  • Kingstonrenagade

    Signed D.C by Love is a sample from hellz wind staff the ”Sometimes” bit. i can’t figure out the Beethoven 1 yet.

  • flawlessjewels

    There’s a song RZA sampled for “Heaterz” besides the Gladys Knight joint. I know because my Aunt was listening to the oldies station a few years ago and I overheard it like “So THAT’S where RZA got it from!” but they never gave the name of the song. It’s the part with the strings.
