I just finished reading this column by Byron Crawford. The piece he wrote is about RZA’s post 2000 legacy. What did he really do that was noteworthy. And maybe the Clan is really better off with RZA left at home. It’s confronting. But an interesting analogy with Pink Floyd’s Darkside Of The Moon serves well. Yet pointing to the Pretty Tony Album was not so. An LP that sounded a bit inconsistent to me, mixing wise. And ever since I saw GZA live on stage with the Clan during their 2004 tour, I have lost faith. The man was rapping with one hand inside his pockets. A solo performance later had him chasing his own beats.
Forget the rant just read the piece here. Do it!
