RZA Forms Hip Hop/Rock Side Project Achozen

The Wu-Tang Clan‘s RZA is teaming up with politically-driven System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, Wu-Tang affiliate Kinetic 9, formerly known as Beretta 9 and Reverend William Burke to form the group Achozen.

“Shavo is my neighbor and we used to hang out in the studio. We realized it was unique that even though we had different backgrounds, we had so much in common with our family, our commitment, our thoughts and the suffering of our people,” RZA explains in a recent interview. “So, we teamed up years ago and have been working on the project for two years. It’s unlike anything else I’ve ever done.”

The group just wrapped their first collaborative effort, which features guest appearances by the GZA, George Clinton, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ John Frusciante and Killah Priest. The foursome’s self-titled debut album will hit stores this summer.
