The Wu-Tang architect proves his place in the hip-hop pantheon with a brooding 9-minute freestyle
It’s virtually impossible to keep up with RZA these days. One second he’s claiming Azealia Banks is flying off the handle at an elite Hollywood dinner party, the next he’s releasing a film starring the tarnished Harlem rapper and coming clean about the alleged spectacle, claiming that Banks was provoked by Russel Crowe when the actor spit at her. No matter who you believe, the release of the new Wu-Tang compilation, The Saga Continues, is a welcomed break from all non-music-related RZA headlines.

It looks and sounds like they both get a little emotional. And, judging from all the sobbing I hear around me, I’m guessing so did everyone in the office I sent this to. You know, I still remember the first time I heard my mothers’s voice. She was yelling at me from the bottom of the stairs to clean my room. “That was this morning.” I have a bad memory.
These are the Fallout inspired tiki mugs created by Geeki Tiki and available as a four-piece set from ThinkGeek for $60. The set includes a deathclaw, suit of power armor, Vault Boy and Dogmeat (who looks a lot like Scooby-Doo). Still, I’m more than a little disappointed there isn’t a Yes Man from Fallout: New Vegas or a super mutant, but what are you gonna do? “Write an angry email.” Exactly. So far I’ve got ‘Now listen here you jerks!’
Keep going for a couple more shots.
