Also known as Prince Rakeem, Rzarector, Bobby Steelz, Abbott. The Chief and Legendary producer of the Legendary Hip-Hop Group, the Wu-Tang Clan
. Produced beats that are raw, hardcore, milimalized (See Enter The Wu Tang: 36 Chambers), eerie, soulful, contained Kung-Fu movie dialogue samples and far in depth. One of the greatest and influential Hip-Hop Producers ever, if not the greatest. Only very few Hip-Hop producers can rumble with the RZA such as DJ Premier (Gang Starr), Dr. Dre, Prince Paul, Pete Rock and Large Professor.
Producers recieving the most praise today such as the Pharrell, Timbaland, Kanye West are not even close to matching the greatness of the RZA. Sure Pharrell and or Kanye maybe more popular and make more money than the RZA now, but the RZA left a bigger influence and will be remembered forever.
Some Sick RZA Beats:
(Dope Ass Beat)
Protect Ya Neck
Da Mystery of Chessboxin'
Duel of The Iron Mic
Bring Da Ruckus
Bring Da Pain
Careful (Click, Click)
"While niggaz bite immediately if not soon
Set the lynchin, and form the execution date
As this two thousand beyond slang suffocate
Amplify sample through vacumn tubes compressions
Cause RZA, to charge niggaz twenty g’s a session"
- GZA/Genius Liquid Swords, 1995, Shadowboxin', Track 8.
Forget all the Bling, Crunk, G-Unit, Fake Thug R&B, and all that Watered Down Commercialized Bullcrap, Wu-Tang Forever!
