Wu Sampled That

Say what you want to about the present day sound of the Wu Tang Clan’s Abbot of Shaolin RZA but it’s without a doubt that he’s sampled and created some of the finest beats in Hip Hop history and fused Kung Fu flicks, soundbites and dialog together to create a new generation of Kung Fu film lovers.  With the recently release of the El Michels Affiar “Return to The 37th Chamber” LP, I’ve been in a heavy Wu mode and stumbled across an hour plus sampling mix which fueled RZA’s production. There have been a couple of these over the years using different records but this is the latest someone one nice enough to put together and it’s a perfect soundtrack while you’re sitting at work getting through the day.
