Immobilarity, by Raekwon.

It's no 5 star classic, but it has plenty of dope cuts, I personally prefer it over OB4CL2.

4 stars.

Slang (and Wayne?) will agree. That's about it.

ive been saying this for so damn long, Immobilarity has a lot of classic cuts on it and Rae is at his LYRICAL best on here and Forever. Sure theres duds on here, but lyrically Rae is spazzing on here

4 stars

I hate Immobilarity. I remember copping that and Black On Both Sides on the same day. I spun the Rae album first and wasn't very impressed, then spun the Mos Def album and it stayed on my rotation for weeks. After spinning Immobilarity once more I had no desire to play it again, whereas I still spin BOBS to this very day from time to time.

KJ, do me a favor and re-listen to Immobilarity with an honest ear and tell me what you think.

BOBS is a 5-star all-time classic, so of course it is better, but I think you are overly harsh on Rae.

I'll revisit it sometime, but both of you are Wu stans so of course you're gonna consider it 4 stars.

While I may like it a little more than I did then, I doubt I'll like it more than OB4CL2. Even Wu Tang Slang feels that's a 4.5 album.

LOL, I saw on one of the Wu album threads when you considered yourself as much of a Wu head as Slang. I'm about to look through my CD's for Immobilarity now though.

im still objective on a lot of things, i hate on a lot of Wu too, you probably have Blackout 2, Fishscale, BDR, 4:21, Massacre, Manifesto, and others rated higher than i do


Rae is on some next level shit on Immobilarity

You don't like Fishscale? Damn, that's a near classic IMO.

Fishscale is 5 stars in my book. Not big on the other at all except for BO! 2

Blackout 2 is the weakest album he named IMO next to maybe Manifesto.

I think The Big Doe Rehab is unfairly hated on, at least here in the forum.

Toney Sigel, Paisley Darts, Killah Lipstick, Slow Down, Yolanda's House, White Linen Affair, that shit had mad bangers. It's my 4th favorite Ghost album.

Immobilarity is very weak IMO...I'd give it about 2.75 stars....it has little to no replay value on it...is not memorable in any way.....it was just a weak effort from Rae IMO

OBFCL2>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Immobilarity

and I'm not crazy about that one either but it's a much better effort than this one


Rae's SOLO career can be summed up like this: Only Built For Cuban Linx (5 stars-an all -time classic) and then it's everything else that he's made.....his SOLO career has not gone as well as he'd hoped I'm sure and that's due to limited subject matter and low charisma

He's still a legend from his work on the Wu projects and being a founding member of the movement but his SOLO career is kinda weak overall IMO!

My thoughts on Raekwon for a long time.

low charisma?!?! LOW CHARISMA?!?!?! lmfao Rae might not have the energy on the mic that he used to but that doesnt equate to low charisma, hes made flavorful with his style and wordplay, and his toned down style now IS charisma, dude just lays back and spits not giving a fuck, thats the definition of charisma, my dude!

I haven't heard this album in quite some time. I remember the songs, however, it's NOT touching OB4CL2.

Actually I have it at 4.75, I skip one track on it.

I'm playing Immobilarity now, still not all that impressed. The production is shitty.

Say what, lol. If you're talking about the Real Talk Vol. 2, I was on probation at my last job man, due to my attendance at the time. I'm no felon man, lol. NEVER did any time in prison.

where in the definition of charisma is there any mention of energy or aggressiveness? please...

"charisma"

1. a special personal quality or power of an individual making him capable of influencing or inspiring large numbers of people
2. a quality inherent in a thing which inspires great enthusiasm and devotion
3. Personal magnetism or charm


INSPIRES enthusiasm, that does not mean has enthusiasm/energy

and Rae fits the 3rd definition listed, hes just got that swag mayne

Although I think OB4CL2 is better, Immobilarity is by far better than The Lex Diamonds Story.
