Inspectah Deck + 7L & Esoteric – Czarface

Sunday Man Cave Series, Part 5

Inspectah Deck and Esoteric offer up a fascinating concept album. Czarface is a comic book-style hero here to save hip hop. Awesome beats, great flow of the main acts, all the special guests, even the awesome cover art, make this a must-have. This project nails it completely.

There’s real wit here, and all the melody, violence and reality that thematically makes good hip hop strong. This likely sailed past most people, but it’s better than many.


From Wiki: “The album features guest appearances from Roc Marciano, Oh No, Ghostface Killah, Action Bronson, Cappadonna and Vinnie Paz. The album’s production comes from 7L, Spada4 and DJ Premier.”

  1. Sod the music – just dig that brilliant cover!!


  2. Inspectah Deck is Wu’s most underrated member, and maybe, just maybe, the actual best of them all. His verse on Triumph still blows my mind.


    • I didn’t know there was any Wu member who was underrated! 🙂 This is a great record, for sure. And Triumph is a superb track!

      • Deck never had a solo career like the others. In fact, most of his albums up to the Czarface collabs were viewed as really bad. RZA was supposed to produce him a solo album in the first 94-96 run (where Raekwon, GZA, ODB, Method and Ghostface all had albums) but he lost most beats in a flood at his studio. One of the hip-hop tragedies, if you ask me. I’m actually thinking of writing an article on Deck in 2017.
