5. Shadowboxin’ – prod. by RZA

A potential claimant to the throne of greatest hip hop producer ever, Wu Tang Clan’s RZA produces this incredible piece that manages to sound grimy yet ice cool and smooth at the same time. I’m a sucker for simple, repetitive beats, and this one is definitely up there with my favorites. Method Man also “break[s] it down to the bone gristle” and lays down some of his slickest verses to date – just listen to his flow, it’s incredible – possibly outdoing fellow Wu Tang Clan member GZA (who is RZA’s cousin btw) on his own song.
