MMXLII Exclusive: The RZA – Kung Fu & Black Culture [VIDEO]

The RZA speaks on his appreciation for Asian culture and Martial arts. As a young man he visited the movie theaters in his community which played blaxploitation films as well as kung fu movies. The two styles blended naturally for some reason since both genres were normally grouped for double features at theaters.  One of the most interesting points in this clip however is how RZA sets the precedent for this clip by saying how by not being able to identify with his own cultural roots he turned to someone else’s cultural roots.  This entire clip gives you a good insight into not only the relationship of martial arts and the black community, but how RZA would start the Wu-Tang Clan as well as create his new film Man With the Iron Fists.
