Ghostface Killah - Ironman [The Samples]

I know you're gonna love this one! Definitely one of the Wu's greatest solo records, 'Ironman' was produced by RZA (aside from one track called 'Fish'). It's got some classic songs like 'Iron Maiden', 'Daytona 500' and 'All That I Got Is You'. Well, the samples are no different. While some of the featured samples are in fact Wu-Tang songs, some great soul music pops us as well. Great tracks by Al Green and O.V. Wright are worth mentioning as well as Sam Cooke's 'A Change Is Gonna Come' (one of my all-time favorites). To cap things off, there's a great sample by Jackson 5 which was used on 'All That I Got Is You' - a very touching song as far as Hip-Hop is concerned. All in all, this is just another great sample set. More to come this week. Enjoy:
