RZA is everywhere these days promoting his feature film directorial debut, The Man With The Iron Fists . He checked in with Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” and Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning” to not only plug away, but to answer a barrage of questions about all things Wu. He also kicked some lyrics over a Big Pun beat. All in a day’s work for the Abbot.
Amongst the inquiries posed by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God was the rumors that certain Clan members were at odds with RZA over financial disputes. Bob Digi addressed the topic, but quickly got into his wish for the Wu to tour next year in commemoration of the 20 year anniversary of 36 Chambers and have “one last hurrah” to “close the book.” (He also mentioned that U-God recently ripped it on a song off of his movie’s soundtrack.) The auteur also was asked whether he had any regrets having the Wu sign individually to different labels at the start of the Clan’s rise.
For his appearance on Sway’s show, RZA kicked a few bars from the classic “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nothing Ta Fuck Wit” before goin’ off over Big Pun’s “Beware” for a few.

“Let me explain something to ya, kid…”
RZA discusses spending 150 days in China working on The Man With The Iron fists (thus developing a taste for karaoke music) and if he ever studied martial arts: “I’ve studied many principles of martial arts that I apply to my life as man, instead of just trying to punch and kick and use a sword — that ain’t gonna happen, kid. They got gun-fu out there.”
