GZA Rates Republicans, White Castle, And Killer Bees As ‘Overrated’ Or ‘Underrated’ (Video)

Save the bees!

Interesting Over/Under answers. Though GZA says he has never seen a ‘sexy nun’ he did slip a slick line in about them, whether he realized it or not… that reference to them making a ‘habit’ of what they wear (e.g. nuns wear habits, get it?).

This Animé “MFKZ” Has Some Of Everybody Doing Everything R-Rated In It (Trailer)

Rated R? That all?? Looks like it could be ‘stronger’ with the warning. Bloody violence, check! Foul language, check! And sexual content, aaaand check! Yep… checks all the boxes for some dope, slick, sick anime that fans like; just like they like it!!

The film [“MFKZ”] centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis – a burnt-out, gang and cockroach-ridden neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident, Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.
– Pitchfork

Check for this [very] limited engagement anime film in theaters October 11th and 16th.

StarTalk: Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Sits Down With GZA (Of Wu-Tang Clan)

I’m continually impressed that much of the GZA content we share on here places just as much a premium on high intellect and science as it does on skillz. Watch world-renown new school science guy Neil deGrasse Tyson talk with GZA; really getting into real-life love of science, being inspired by it, and how it can (and should) inspire others.

Raekwon Speaks On His Classic Song ‘Criminology’ & Various Beat Samples (Video)

Historical and real. Starting from part 1 of this multi-part series. Raekwon speaking on how songs came together for Wu-Tang Clan back in the day; especially recounting how he was there to grab the beat for his classic “Criminology” from RZA right ‘off the stove’ at the home studio (because if he wasn’t, someone else would…that’s just how the wolves ate in the studio)!

That’s just the beginning. Check out all this good content; a series of shorts that start above and continue after the jump.

Classic Clips: Ol Dirty Bastard x GZA Freestyling in 1991 (Video)

ODB and GZA freestyling… in the bathroom! How real is that? How classic!! This is how we used to do. Wonder of music box caught anybody ‘catching wreck’ (so Golden Era today) in the cafeteria. Beatboxing is one thing, but nothing beats a beat beat out on a lunchroom table.

We’ve posted on GZA’s appreciation for the sciences before, but here at TedxTeen we see Genius in exploration and lyrical expression about science as a way to unlock the wonders of the universe. Watch. GZA loves the kids, and apparently he would love the kids to develop a love of science like he has at an earlier age. The kids spit. RZA flows. Knowledge and inspiration are shared. Great stuff!

Raekwon Says Gza Turned Down An Opportunity To Be In The Juice Crew (Video)

I love hearing these behind the scenes stories in hip hop or the music industry in general like this. They are like little gems of information that are always fun facts to know. While being interviewed by XXL for during their webcast, Raekwon dropped a jewel about how Gza from the Wu-Tang Clan had the opportunity to join the legendary Juice Crew back in the day with Big Daddy Kane, Kool G. Rap, Marley Marl & others. Just imagine….in a parallel universe Gza is making an appearance in the classic ‘Symphony’ video……
