The RZA, founder of the Wu-Tang Clan, imparts the lessons he's learned on his journey from the Staten Island projects to international superstardom. A devout student of knowledge in every form in which he's found it, he distills here the wisdom he's acquired into seven "pillars," each based on a formative event in his life-from the moment he first heard the call of hip-hop to the death of his cousin and Clan- mate, Russell Jones, aka ODB. Delivered in RZA's unmistakable style, at once surprising, profound, and provocative, The Tao of Wu is a spiritual memoir the world has never seen before, and will never see again. A nonfiction Siddhartha for the hip-hop generation, it will enlighten, entertain, and inspire.
Wu Tang Clan founding member the RZA offers a narrative of personal growth, spiritual discovery, thoughtfulness, and profound hard work with his second published book, THE TAO OF WU. Starting from his rough early days in Staten Island projects and following the international hip-hop star and legendarily wise man through to his present-day apex of success, this memoir charts the RZA's best and worst moments, his travels and explorations of everything from martial arts to chess. Every page of this original work--which also looks directly at the Wu Tang Clan's self-constructed mythology--emanates the RZA's voice and personality, elevating THE TAO OF WU from dry memoir to an engagingly personal story.
