Earlier this week, Wu-Tang Clan member RZA spoke in depth with Bloomberg in a multi-part video interview. The veteran MC/producer responded to the arrest of Martin Shkreli, who purchased Wu’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin album for a reported $2 million. Speaking about the new possibilities for the single copy album, RZA also reacted to claims, previously made by Shkreli, that he is “arrogant.”


Perhaps more notably, in the same interview (another video), RZA voiced his opinion surrounding police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement. Promoting the All Lives Matter belief, the Abbot encouraged fellow Blacks to take more accountability of exchanges with law enforcement, and how they dress and act.
