The first single from Wu Tang Clan's A Better Tomorrow album, this takes its name from the late actor who played coke dealer Youngblood Priest in the 1972 Blaxploitation classic Super Fly. RZA compares himself to Ron O'Neal in his verse when the rapper declares that he will win just like O'Neal's Super Fly character does at the end of the movie.
The entire Wu-Tang Clan performed the song on the August 6, 2014 episode of The Daily Show. "I think we've been so blessed to have the same job for the past 21 years and not hurt nobody doing it," Method Man said about their performance. "As soon as we came together for one common cause, we knew that what we were doing was something different and something great. And it showed and proved in the end."
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
