GZA - Liquid Swords II

From RNZ Music

The nine-strong hip hop super group Wu-Tang Clan joined forces in 1992, serving a heady brew of gritty raps, Eastern philosophy and samples from kung fu films. While Wu's hard-living court jester Ol' Dirty Bastard passed away in 2004, the clan is still going strong, with a back catalogue that is one of the most celebrated in rap history. GZA's 1995 solo debut 'Liquid Swords' is considered a jewel in the Wu crown and he now has plans to update the project with 'Liquid Swords II'. Sam Wicks talked to GZA about revisiting classic material.
