GZA Shows The Skill Of His Stylez With A New Rap Caper (Audio)
The Wu-Tang Clan has created a true umbrella of artists. From Cappadonna to La The Darkman, Killarmy to American Cream Team, there have been legions of MCs, producers, and non-musical personalities attached to the original nine-member New York City collective. Even when the Clan has not been working in formation, these careers prevail.
Within that nine, GZA (f/k/a The Genius) has been especially gifted at identifying burgeoning talent. His Top 10 1999 album Beneath The Surface would offer a plethora of personalities (including Killah Priest, Hell Razah, Timbo King, La, and Dreddy Kruger). Additionally, the Brooklyn, New Yorker enlisted Santigold, Res, and Angela Yee (on a skit) to appear on the MCA Records LP—years before any of the three would be widely recognized. 2008’s Pro Tools would include memorable appearances by Roc Marciano and Ka—with Roc also dropping beats.
In 2016, GZA has his eye on Caper. The Bronx, New York MC joins Genius for “The Skill Of Stylez.” GZA kicks things off, with a rugged delivery that weaves in various of his album titles, talking about his place in Rap. In a single feature verse, the veteran shows he’s sharp as ever. Caper enters, showcasing cadence, compound rhymes, and holding the same subject matter as his partner.
Caper hopes to reap the benefits of a collabo with an MC who can change careers for others.
