With the Wu-Tang Clan on an extended hiatus, member MC Gza takes time to craft his third album. Never one to hold his tongue on issues concerning the music industry, Gza lets challengers, producers, and label executives alike have it on "Did Ya Say That." Accompanied by an organ-driven sample, the Staten Island, N.Y., native lyrically goes after anyone who gets in his way. On "Stay in Line," a much more mellow affair, Gza teams with songstress Santi White over a striking Police-esque guitar sample. Wu-Tang brethren Rza, Ghostface Killah, and Inspectah Deck all make appearances throughout the set. In fact, "Silent," which features Ghostface and Streetlife, makes one yearn for a new Wu-Tang set. Until then, Legend of the Liquid Sword ably satisfies.—RH
