  • Wu-Tang Manual

    I was wondering if anyone has bought and read RZA's book "The Wu-Tang Manual." He was on the Daily Show the other night talking about it and it looks pretty interesting. I'm gonna pick it up when i have some extra cash. Just wondering if anyone has read it and has any opinions on it.

      If you like Wu-Tang get this shit. I got it a week or so ago and it's better than I expected. It goes over all the following things that the group incorporates into their music: Profiles/stories on each member, Martial Arts, Comics, Chess, Organized crime, Cinema, Touring, Drugs, lyrics (with stories/explanations), and even a dictionary with slang terms that they used. Also talks a lot about the area of Staten Island that most of them grew up in. It's definately worth looking at.

              Possibly, don't remember if the book says. Didn't Jay-Z, Biggy, and Busta Rhymes all go the same school as eachother? I could be completely wrong though. That would be pretty crazy if they did

                  FUCK u beat me to this thread!

                  I got it already... shit is SOO great!

                  I got it yesterday cuz my parents saw it on tv and told me about it cuz they thought it was interesting then I went to indigo and bought it... it is real good.

                  I am on page 80 something... I could have finished it already but I am reading another book too called The Politics Of Hunger... and I want to enjoy The Wu-Tang Manual...

                  BUT if you are thinking about getting it... THEN GET IT! Cuz it is a great book, so interesting, one of my fav books cuz he has a lot of different subjects in it, plus the way he presents it is on a level that is very interesting to me... plus the cover and all that looks tight.

                  Book is ILL COP IT!

                        I'm pretty sure they didn't... RZA met a lot of them in their area.... but the GZA and ODB are the RZA's cousins and he met method man when he was like 16 and meth was 14. I am pretty sure they didn't grow up in the same skool... in the book, one of the first pages has a map of parts of Staten and Brooklyn Zoo and all that and it shows where each of them lives... Its tight.

                            i ordered it from amazon.com for $10.88...should be coming through soon...what caught my ear initially was that they were going to talk about how martial arts (film) influenced them, and i was always into martial arts flicks...
