Watch The Teaser For The Latest RZA Film, “Cut Throat City” (Trailer)

It’s cool that RZA can go Hollywood and not go ‘Hollywood’… Like his “The Man With The Iron Fists” this movie he has coming looks like something he would watch. Something we want to watch, too.

CUT THROAT CITY is the story of four boyhood friends in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward who return after Hurricane Katrina to find their homes decimated, no jobs, and no help from FEMA. Reluctantly turning to a local gangster for work, the friends are hired to pull off a daring heist in the heart of the city. But the job goes bad and they find themselves on the run, hunted by two idealistic detectives and a neighborhood warlord who thinks the friends stole the heist money. With their only way out to buy their way back, the friends decide to get what they need by turning the tables on the casinos that have taken from their city for years… by doing a little taking of their own.

No way to miss the social commentary in this film. Check out the trailer.

Wu-Tang Clan – “People Say” feat. Redman (Prod. By Mathematics)

BANGER! More proof that Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to f*ck wit’… Unless you got the skills, like Redman, to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and hold your own on a track. Reggie Noble did that, “People Say.” Check it out for yourself though.

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.

Wu-Tang Clan – “A Better Tomorrow” (Video)

Black lives matter. Hip-Hop matters, especially when it is bringing truth to light like this. Great flip of the “Wake Up Everybody” music by Teddy Pendergrass for today’s cause. Respect to Wu-Tang for putting this out; especially now.

This visual was created by Wu-Tang Clan in the hopes of inspiring change and promoting unity throughout the world.

Nardwuar Talks Old School And Kung-Fu With The Wu-Tang Clan (Video)

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’?)

RZA Speaks on ‘Iron Fist’ and More on ‘Last Call With Carson Daly’ (Video)


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.
