Inspectah Deck

7:30 p.m. Sunday, September 30. Fubar, 3108 Locust Street.



Inspectah Deck is the Wu-Tang Clan's most underrated member. While it's true that the rapper has never released a solo album on par with Method Man's Tical or Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, his dense lyricism and clever wordplay has been featured prominently on some of the Clan's most memorable group outings, including the universally praised first verse of 1997's "Triumph." It was also Mr. Deck who opened "Guillotine (Swordz)" for Rae and even the group's first single, the classic "Protect Ya Neck." All told, he has contributed some of the best verses the group has to offer in the way of outright lyrical skill.

Like Your Neighborhood Spider Man: The show takes place at Fubar, which is a pretty awesomely intimate setting to see a living legend; don't miss out.
