Ahaaaaha! RZA and GZA may want to bury some of that stuff Nardwuar dug up on them, but hey…that’s what he does. Great interview. Plus Nard brought gifts, as always. Very cool conversation with the Wu crew. Thought you were just gonna come rock Vancouver and chill in the dressing room with crew and [eye] candy? Nah, Nardwuar is coming through. And before you know, he will have impressed you…with his knowledge and genuineness. That’s likely why artists either know him or warm up to him…and clown his fashion sense (ha).
(Tense in some spots. You MUST watch to the end. Will Nard get to wrap with his ‘doot doola doot doo’?)
“Only One Place To Get It” is an EP serving some of the freshest flavors out. RZA captains this Hip-Hop vehicle (with Dr. Pepper sponsoring the trip). FREE download. Nice work by Bobby Digital and his band of emcees and producers.

On ya Hot 97 yesterday that’s the word! RZA dropped in on the Hot 97 Morning Show to chat about his new movie (“Brick Mansions,” co-starring with the late Paul Walker), about the Wu-Tang Clan, about Raekwon’s recent comments about him, and more.
RZA was a recent guest on The Arsenio Hall Show. During their sit-down, RZA spoke with the host on things … including the 20th anniversary of the release of “Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),” the ninth anniversary of the passing of ODB, Raekwon being the last hold-out for one last reunion album from the Wu.
A quick thumb through prior Montreality posts here will let you know that the format for this interview with RZA (of Wu-Tang Clan) is consistent. But in grand Montreality fashion, will glean intriguing insights from watching this clip. Gets better and better as it goes along. Leading into albums on deck, we are hearing about RZA’s favorite cartoon character… ‘past life’… reflections on ODB (wild times, good times)… view of Hip-Hop for the world… and jewels for the youth. Incredible viewing!
“Shaolin Soul Selection: Volume 1″ presents 24 original recordings – nearly 2 1/2 hours of essential soul music available for digital download – from the vaults of STAX Records and its subsidiary labels. These are the labels that inspired The RZA and the Wu-Tang classic sound. Get the sampler for FREE now. The full jawn will be available later (March 19, 2013).
Wu-Tang frontman, actor, & movie director The RZA let this joint fly onto the web the other day. I like this version better than the one used on the “Man With The Iron Fists” soundtrack. Sounds way more soulful. Check out RZA in the video below speaking on the makings of the song as he provides more insight as to why there is an alternate version.

RZA is ‘on Cloud 11′ speaking on his new movie “The Man With the Iron Fists.” Directing and starring in it… incredible responsibilities and power to make a lifelong dream come true. Watching Kung Fu flicks since a pre-teen, RZA finally got a chance to make one happen. But to master the art, he had to study with a Master. As he tells Carson Daly on ‘Last Call’ RZA became the willing student of Master filmmaker Quentin Tarantino! Watch as RZA schools Carson on martial arts films and more in the video clip above.

In the video above, Ghostface talks about he and RZA strategizing for the next Wu-Tang album. The word according to Ghost: RZA’s studied the game, and all he needs is a bit more time and the faith of his Wu-Tang brothers … and it’s ON! Okay then. Ghost believes. No reason not to believe, as RZA has made more and more major moves as of late. He’s been speaking on “The Man With The Iron Fists” – the movie for which he put out the dope deluxe limited edition soundtrack… and for which he makes his directorial debut… and in which he stars. Moving in front of the camera AND behind it AND on the music front… Hell, RZA has made more moves for one movie than most have made in successful careers!

Man! Fans (including us) are so ready for this movie! RZA drops in on The Breakfast Club at Power 105 to talk up “Man with the Iron Fists” – a Quentin Tarantino movie RZA stars in and directs. RZA also speaks on Wu Tang and what’s possibly coming up for the crew and more. According to RZA there may only be one more Wu-Tang Clan album left in the chamber.
‘Quentin Tarantino presents “The Man With The Iron Fists,” an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA [of Hip-Hop's Wu-Tang Clan] and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director, co-writer and leading man, RZA – alongside an exciting international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu – tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold.’ – Official Webiste
Question: Is that pro wrestler Dave Batista from WWE in the trailer, too? So that’s where he went!
Toronto singer/Songwriter/producer & musician Colin Munroe enlists the help of the RZA & Memoryhouse for this “Invincible” track that will appear on his upcoming UnsungHero mixtape that’s poised to drop. From a production standpoint the track definitely has that early Wu-Tang & RZA flavoring to it. Nice second peek into what’s to come from the Unsung Hero project since releasing the “Fight Of My Life” joint with Pusha T about two months ago.
Peep the first single produced by Detroit, MI representer and RZA disciple Bronze Nazareth, “Love” off Copywrite’s new album God Save the King, which drops Feb 28th. The video directed by Seanie G which I think they could have done a little bit more with condsidering the title, but ths joint is still a banger…
Wu-Tang Clan leader Bobby Digital aka The RZA stopped by the Conan O’Brien show on Valentines Day to speak on his new show ‘Californication’, speaks on his new iphone app, wanting to battle Jay-Z in a chess match, & educates Conan on embracing our multiple personalities within ourselves….
In a recent sitdown interview with VladTV, Raekwon spoke on how he felt the individual solo careers of Wu-Tang Clan members ultimately hurt the group in many ways. I can understand where Shallah Raekwon is coming from in terms of missing the close camaraderie of his group members , but trying to feed a 9 man group would prove to be difficult over time. So I’d have to respectfully disagree with Rae on that. The solo careers helped make the Wu-Tang Clan stronger in the presence of the fans in my opinion. Although things have waned a little for the group as a whole in more recent years, but I’d argue that their solo careers have kept the Wu-Tang Clan alive. Not sure about the recent allegations in the news of RZA renting out the Wu-Tang Clan logo out to foreign rap artists though…
In a recent interview Rza speaks on a possible collaborative LP with Method Man, the struggles of being a movie director with his upcoming film “Man with the Iron Fist”,having over 500 free beats (yes FREE) for artist to come through his lab and collect. He also explains why he does not sell music anymore just to get a check. Bong Bong!!
