Deconstructing Inspectah Deck's Verse On Wu-Tang Clan's "Triumph" | Check The Rhyme


Back in 1997, Wu-Tang Clan dropped “Triumph” as the lead single for their sophomore album Wu-Tang Forever. The track features all nine members of Wu-Tang Clan plus Cappadonna, and it (along with its famous, Brett Ratner-directed video) remains a high point in the group’s catalog. The RZA-produced “Triumph” kicks off with an iconic verse from Inspectah Deck, featuring a complex rhyme scheme that is often cited as one of the best rap verses of all time. 

Check out Genius contributor @Flegmatik’s color-coded breakdown of Inspectah Deck’s rhyme scheme from the song’s first verse in the video above, and read all the lyrics to Wu-Tang Clan’s “Triumph” on Genius now.

    1. They're definitely good but that's a bold statement to call them the best. Hex One and Abdominal are pretty crazy too. Abs spit 16 bars in one breath.
