RZA sat down with Snoop Dogg on the latest episode of GGN News. The two smoke some sticky icky and chop it up about how RZA’s directorial debut The Man with the Iron Fistscame together.
Director Quentin Tarantino took RZA under his wing while he was filming Kill Bill. RZA got introduced to writer/actor Eli Roth, who also was the director of Hostel. The two of them of them put their heads together and over a period of two years turned RZA’s 70 page script into Man with the Iron Fists.
In anticipation of The Man With The Iron Fists film release RZA has released a water-colored teaser for the film. The artwork was created by Afro Samurai illustrator Eric Calderon, drawing inspiration from traditional Chinese brushwork, and serves as a fitting backdrop for RZA’s narrative — a recounting of the encounter “the Blacksmith” has on a port stop.
In part one of a three part series, Funkmaster Flex sits down with RZA to speak on the origin of the Wu-Tang, how much he believes in The Man In The Iron Fists, what the Wu was called before the ’90s, and gets quizzed on the history of the crew.
