You and Dids are defining later work very differently. The bad/mediorcre stuff Dids is (correctly) referring too are albums like The Lex Diamond Story, Grandmasters, More Fish, Wu-Massacre, etc. If you are counting Ironman/OB4CL 1/Liquid Swords as "later work" you are basically counting everything past 36 Chambers.

Ghost has by far the best solo catalogue of any Wu-Tang member. I can't imagine a top 10 Wu solo project list without 4 Ghostface albums. Just for fun my list which I came up with in 15 seconds.

1. Supreme Clientele
2. OB4CL
3. OB4CL II
4. Liquid Swords
5. Ironman
6. Pretty Toney Album
7. Fishscale
8. Beneath the Surface
9. Return to the 36 Chambers
10. Blackout!

i mean, OB4CL & Ironman are basically ghost/rae duo albums, ghost is a gigantic part of what makes OB4CL so great and vice versa

ha, honestly, at least you have stuff like Bowie and the Kinks on there. At the Rice radio station (which I usually love, and which got really ****ed over by the sale to UH), the music director is usually someone who thinks that anything with discernible melody, rhythm, or structure isn't forward-thinking enough for college radio. So you get tracks like "eight minutes of pot-banging and cat screeching that sounds like it was recorded in a closet".

lol at this.

People think Ghostface is awesome because he's put out four awesome solo albums.

4 or 5 in the wu power rankings is absurd, unless you are just talking about wu group albums, in which case I'll agree.

LOL dids though, because like you say Raekwon and GZA have also put out some great solo stuff.

because it's really easy to spend 6 hours at ikea, you might have to replenish your strength and/or shove some food into your sig other's mouth because they've been blabbering the entire time about blankets for kids and such.

Raekwon is the greatest member of Wu, when you include group contribution, solo contributions and general awesomeness

GZA and RZA close behind, then i guess ghostface?

GZA is prob the best pure rapper, but his albums outside of liquid swords are just not that good. The production on them is flat out bad at times.

Ghost's catalog is much much deeper and contains at least 2 classic albums (prob more). Add in all his guest appearances and it's easy ghost >> Gza IMO.

Rza gets his own category, it's hard to measure his value as a producer vs. the rest of the clan's value as rappers. As a rapper, he's clearly bottom 3.

What? That's not what Dids said, Dids essentially said only Ghost has put out good solo work and that's ridiculous

I guess it's a matter of taste and I def have (correctly) identified that indie rockers think Ghostface is the best member of Wu. This doesn't mean Ghostface isn't good. He's an elite rapper, but he def gets more credit on record review sites that favor indie rock than he does on hip hop websites, whereas Raekwon is royalty in those circles

You won't find many hip hop heads putting Supreme Clientele over OB4CL, and 2 might even be as good as 1

He said "everyone not named Ghostface's later work is bad enough that ..."

Have no idea how you got only "Ghost put out good solo stuff" out of that

The main reason most hip hop heads would rank OB4CL over Supreme Clientele is because OB4CL is a seminal album.
