RZA's Allergies Force Him To Wear Malcolm X Style Glasses


(AllHipHop News) Wu-Tang Clan producer RZA wears glasses to protect his sensitive eyes.

The hip-hop legend prefers designer Tom Ford's frames when he's out and about, revealing he needs to shield himself from allergy-inducing debris in both indoor and outdoor settings.

"For some reason, I got the face shape that fits Tom Fords," he explained to New York Magazine. "You either catch me with the shades on or in 'the nerds' (regular eyeglasses). We call them the Malcolm X glasses in the hood. I actually have eyes that irritate easily, so I wear the glasses to keep stuff out of my eyes.

"If you see me in shades indoors, you might be like, 'RZA is wearing shades inside, what the hell is going on?' I’m protecting my eyes, and I’m looking cool. I have probably a dozen pairs."

GHOSTFACE KILLAH & APOLLO BROWN CHRONICLE THE “RISE OF THE GHOSTFACE KILLAH” WITH RZA


Slated to drop January 26th, The Brown Tape is described as a “daring, full-length Crime/Horror concept album.” “This is Ghostface Killah’s brutal tale of gangsters, betrayal and one vengeful soul hunting the 12 most powerful crime lords in the World. The Deluca’s pressed Tony’s remains into 12 vinyl records – one for each member of the family. But little did they know – he would return…”

The project will be narrated by RZA, and will feature several members of the Wu-Tang Clan, including Masta Killa, U-God and Inspectah Deck.

Apollo and Ghostface have dropped the latest single from the project, “Rise Of The Ghostface Killah.” That can be heard below.

Why GZA Is One Of The Greatest Of All Time


A Case for GZA as One of Hip-Hop's GOATs

In this series, we'll be making the case for specific rappers to be included in "greatest of all-time" discussions. The more obvious choices (such as André 3000, Lil Wayne, Eminem, Jay-Z, Nas, Biggie, 2Pac) will be ignored in favor of artists who tend to get overlooked these days, for one reason or another. Previously, our writers have made cases for Pusha T, Ice Cube, DJ Quik, Big Boi, DMX, Ghostface Killah, Scarface, Lloyd Banks, and Three 6 Mafia. Today, we're going to bat for GZA.

Method Man to Join Cast of Upcoming 'Shaft' Reboot


Method Man is gearing up for his next big movie role.

According to The Hollywood Reporter​, the Wu-Tang Clan member will join the cast of New Line Cinema’s upcoming Shaft reboot, Son of Shaft. Method, who will reportedly play the titular character’s old friend, will star alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie. T. Usher, Regina Hall, and Avan Jogia.

Son of Shaft is expected to follow the plot of the 2000 John Singleton-directed sequel starring Jackson. Deadline reports Usher (Survivor’s Remorse) will take on the role of Shaft’s son, who is described as “a young cyber expert FBI agent” who is forced to work with his estranged father on a new case. Richard Roundtree, the original 1971 Shaft, will also make an appearance.

Tim Story will direct the reboot based on a script by Alex Barnow and Black-ish creator Kenya Barris; the latter has signed on to produce the film along with John Davis.
