RZA sat down for a fairly divisive interview with Bloomberg, discussing Hillary Clinton, Black Lives Matter, and everybody’s favorite ex-pharmaceutical mogul Martin Shkreli. The Smoking Section will cover some of the other bits in a later post, but the Shkreli remarks were really the bits that felt fun. Plus he puts to rest all those Bill Murray rumors.
First things first, RZA talks about his first meeting with Shkreli. This is before all of the arrests and criticism in the media, a point where RZA wasn’t aware who he was discussing this album with:
“I met him, we had a brief lunch, and he did mention his love of hip-hop,” RZA said in the interview with Bloomberg. “I didn’t get a chance to read him. We talked briefly about where he comes from, briefly about what Wu-Tang means.”
