Watch Wu-Tang Clan’s Epic Interview With Nardwuar [VIDEO]
If you’re familiar with Canada’s own Nardwuar the Human Serviette, you know that he delivers the best interviews on the Internet. From Snoop Dogg to A$AP Rocky to Pharrell Williams to YG, Nardwuar has interviewed most of your favorite rappers in the game.
In his latest video, the eccentric journalist interviews Wu-Tang Clan members the RZA, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Cappadonna, Masta Killa and Raekwon.
During Nardwuar’s epic interview, which features mostly the RZA, they discuss an array of topics including vintage kung fu movies and his pre-Wu-Tang days — when he was known as Prince Rakeem on Cold Chillin’ Records.
At one point, the RZA explains that the Wu-Tang Clan has inspired many of today’s technological advancements.
“Music inspires,” he said. “Over the years, I’ve met doctors, screenwriters, scientists and billionaires who have told me that Wu-Tang has inspired them to do certain things. One guy told me that the modem was invented listening to Wu-Tang.”
Finally, Nardwuar and the RZA wrap it up with a rapid-fire round of old-school rap history through vinyl records. Rap legends Spoonie G, the Fearless 4, the Force MD’s, the UMC’s, Mr. Magic and Divine Force are praised by the RZA in the discussion.
At 24 minutes long, this interview is a doozy. If you have some spare time, grab a sandwich and learn about the history of the Wu-Tang and Staten Island hip-hop.
