EDITORS’ NOTES

Despite bearing the names of the most notable Wu-Tang Clan collaborators, the compilation Links to Poetry largely features Wu-Tang allies and affiliates. “Black Trump,” from the 1998 Cocoa Brovaz album Rude Awakening, runs a high-pitched whistle underneath the beat, with the Brovaz and Raekwon rapping in unison on the chorus. “Execute Them” is a classic RZA beat with haunting keys that leave atmospheric space for Masta Killa and Raekwon to spit comfortably. Ghostface shines solo on the soulful, Lyn Collins–sampling “Cobra Clutch.”
