The Method of a Master

April 14th, 2010 · 2 Comments

More downtown meetings this morning, so we’ll have to circle back to you in a few hours. In the meantime, please ponder some words of wisdom from one of Microkhan’s all-time favorite artists, The RZA. He shared the following insight with the great Stop Smiling back in 2006:

RZA: I’m going to tell you a funny story I don’t share with a lot of people. When I made the Bobby Digital album, I actually had the mentality of being a vigilante. I got a special car built with police sirens and everything. I got a special suit built, and the suit was level-four security, meaning you couldn’t stab me or shoot me. I was like, “I’m going out at night to fight crimes.” My uncle, who was a master black belt at martial arts, was my driver.

Stop Smiling: He was your Kato?

RZA: He’s my Kato. And a couple of nights I actually stopped shit without having to stop shit. That’s the RZA, a’ight, a’ight.

We can only imagine the shock of folks who had their criminal plans foiled when a famous hip-hop artist emerged from his car, wearing level-four getup. The level of surprise surely rivaled that experienced by Minneapolis residents who opened their doors to discover a Bible-thumping Prince.
