Interview with RZA, Kung-Fu Master (Video)

rza-wu-bookIncredibly, you are about to watch RZA, the 40-year-old mastermind behind the Wu-Tang Clan, kick a Six Million Dollar Man jigsaw puzzle canister off my head.

Riverhead Books recently published The Tao of Wu, the RZA’s new manifesto, and graciously offered True/Slant the opportunity to interview him at lower Manhattan’s USA Shaolin Temple. This is where, under the tutelage of Shi Yan Ming, he honed the martial-arts skills frequently alluded to in his lyrics and book.

Here in part one, RZA discusses kung fu and Ol’ Dirty Bastard before totally getting all chop-socky on my jigsaw puzzle.

Part two of the interview is here.
