RZA Breaks Down Kung Fu Samples
Wired has an interview with the RZA as he breaks down which movies he sampled for each song's kung fu elements. Also, if you haven't picked up The Wu-Tang Manual: Enter the 36 Chambers, Volume One and you are into the Wu at all, you need to stop what you're doing and go buy it now. Seriously, Casi G has it and I started reading it and I was completely floored. I felt like it was 1997 all over again listening to "It's Yours" after getting the double album for Christmas or 1993 and watching the Wu video for the first time all bug eyed being like WTF is this??? Wu Fans you ready for December 4th? Eight Diagrams and the Ghostface album Big Doe Rehab. I can't figure out whether that is incredible or a terrible marketing move. If you can't get enough RZA watch RZA gets schooled in chess by a 16 year old.
