    Buy. It's just a more entertaining album straight up, I think. They're both classics in their own right, and have different benefits, but OB4CL was a landmark in mafioso rap, and is simply a superior album, I think.

    BQ: OB4CL - 98

    Liquid Swords - 95

    BQ2: Beats - OB4CL. Just straight up more enjoyable beats as a whole, I think. I thought Liquid Swords was a bit inconsistent with the quality of beats (I loved 4th Chamber, but didn't like Hell's Wind Staff so much etc.)

    Guest collabs - OB4CL (although some credit must be given to Killah Priest for his work on B.I.B.L.E., that was one dope guest appearance)

    Lyrics - I think I'll go for Liquid Swords here. I like the whole cerebral rap thing. But I think OB4CL was more original.

    Flow- I think Raekwon has a better flow. So OB4CL takes this as well.

    Replay value - Tie. It depends what I'm in the mood for. If I'm just chilling, probably OB4CL. But if I feel like engaging with the music a bit more, I think Liquid Swords takes it.

    Overall - OB4Cl.

    I've made it sound like OB4CL dominates it in almost every aspect, but really it only edges Liquid Swords out slightly in most of the categories chosen. Both are brilliant, and let me stress, brilliant albums, and deserve a place in any hip hop head's music library.

    Sell. I like Liquid Swords better. They are both great albums, though.

    BQ: Both 100, I guess. Doesn't get much better than those two bad boys, as far as Wu solo albums go.

    BQ2: Beats- Liquid Swords

    Guest Collabs- Liquid Swords. I really liked all the verses on 4th Chamber, Method Man's verse on Shadowboxing and B.I.B.L.E. by Killah Priest is great as well. All the collaborations on the album were good, I suppose.

    Lyrics- Liquid Swords. GZA's lyrics come very strong on Liquid Swords.

    Flow- Only Built 4 Cuban Linx

    Replay Value- Liquid Swords

    Overall- Liquid Swords
