I was trying to think of something special to do for my 600th Westcheddar post, but sometimes things just happen perfectly, and there is really no need for planning. So it is with great pleasure and honor that I present this interview I did with RZA as my monumental 600th post. It was crazy to sit with The Abbot of the Wu-Tang Clan, and chop it up with him about the soundtrack to his upcoming martial arts film The Man with the Iron Fists. We kicked for about a half hour out in Brooklyn at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, and he told me the stories behind all the songs on the soundtrack, which features the whole Wu, Kanye West, The Black Keys, Kool G Rap, Pusha T, Corinne Bailey Rae, and many more amazing artists. Click the link to check it out, and thanks to everyone for staying tuned to Westcheddar. Love is love.
I gotta post the Kanye West song “White Dress” off the soundtrack too, which was officially released last Friday on the same day as this feature. It’s so damn good to hear ‘Ye spitting over a soulful RZA beat. I’ve had this for a few weeks now, but kept my excitement on the hush as to not let the crack out of the bag. It was pretty cool to have an exclusive like this early, but I’m glad it’s out now for everyone to enjoy…
I still remember the first time I heard this song. I can picture myself listening to it over and over and over and over again. I def wrote a paper in college filled with quotes from this song. Such a gem. RZA “Sunshower,” off the Wu-Tang Forever import. Do the knowledge.
