GZA aka The Genius of the legendary Wu Tang Clan speaks at a special lecture at the University of Toronto campus in 2014.
WorldWide Entertainment TV was there to capture the moment as GZA goes into detail on his humble beginnings with the architect of the group RZA and the charismatic Ol’ Dirty Bastard aka ODB.
The Genius provides insight into how he was fascinated with the world of science as a kid, but was limited in resources for learning at an advanced level. He explains how he used the science of music to express his creativity that led him to worldwide success. Today, GZA is remembered fondly for his classic hip hop album, Liquid Swords, on the executive produced television series Wu Tang Clan: An American Saga.
The Wu-Tang Clan is a legendary hip-hop group from Staten Island, New York, that emerged in the early 1990s. The group consists of nine members: RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard (deceased).
The group is known for their unique sound, which combines raw, gritty beats with kung-fu samples, and their powerful lyrics that address social and political issues. Their debut album, “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),” released in 1993, is widely considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time and helped establish the group’s legacy.
Over the years, the individual members of Wu-Tang Clan have also released successful solo albums and collaborated with other artists. They remain a hugely influential force in hip-hop and have inspired generations of artists since their debut.
