Rza and the Legend of the Replicator

Investigating Rza's secret history of digital turntables. Check here for the original interview I'm quoting.
(I'm pretending I don't know about Rza's discord with the rest of the Wu, cuz I just can't handle the truth.)
You funny man .. at leas 80% of the time LOL

I would not put it past RZA, though the NASA chip thing was kinda wild. But on the debate, Vinyl vs Digital, I don't understand why anyone would be against the introduction of technology in music. I am willing to bet that we all have more digital music that we do vinyl, and that means more access to all types of music. Not to mention the ability to move easily from venue to venue.

HAHA! Another classic post Jay! I want to find out for myself what role he played in the invention of these "Replicators"

For whatever reason I don't ever want to believe RZA is lying...and i'm tore up (pause) about the whole wu vs. rza situation right now too...
as far as the debate about serato scratch...wtf is there to debate...on serato you are still using vinyl records...they're just digitally encoded vinyl records...
if u were a wack dj before serato, you will still be a wack dj with serato

A rainbow led RZA to this guy's house? RZA has more tall tales than Afrika Bambaataa!

Haha--outstanding as usual, Jay.
The RZA and his accountants really do operate on a higher plane than the rest of us.

They got us fucked up.
Real fucked up in the head.
In so many ways.
From every direction they tellin us we aint cool.
When the fuck we gon let them go?
They plaster thier image everywhere.
Thousands of times over.
They call us "miniorities". Who the fuck you talkin too?
You think you talkin' to yourself with that dumb shit?
They throw that out there to try to belittle us. Gradually. Calling us "miniorities". Like we minor or some shit.
But Y'ALL THE ONES that's miniorities on this planet. You ain't foolin nobody no more.
They made her feel unacceptable for not being a 98 pound blond chick.
They told her we don't like short, thick hair around here.
Gone get yaself a weave.
They rolled their eyes when they saw her coming cuz she was "too fat".
From this to the kids who feel like they gotta start poppin off at schools because they don't fit in,
When we gon let these muvafuckas go?
They told her, well maybe if you were a little smaller, we'd like you. See Paris hilton? see nicole kidman?
those the kinda women we like around here.
You're too big.
Too big to be acceptable.
If you want access, make yourself more like us. Go get rid of some of that "excess fat". Those tits?
Unh unn. Too big?
Get a breast reduction and them come holla at us.
Then we'll acknowledge you on the street.
Then we'll look at you.
Then we'll let you come to our parties and hang out with us.
Then you'll be on the lists.
I say, man, fuck y'all and all y'all weight requirements.
We only deal with you soulless fuckas outta 100% absolute neccesity.
We wouldn't if we didn't have to.
It's time we let these muvafuckas go.
R.I.P. Dr. Donda West.
May all the non-white, fuller women learn something from her passing.
Fuck white people's standards.

lol. SO THAT's what it's called serato? I was very confounded trying to figure out how that works. Why use a disc at all, if everything can be replicated digitally, including scratches. Anyways I read somewhere, that it was Ghost who was holding things up with red ink and paperzz. But the whole crew were down and laying tracks.

Yeah. At first I wanted to be pissed at you Jay for lampooning RZA. You're on point about how he tells stories. He's truly on a whole other level and at times it don't sound grounded in reality. There's a whole bit about this in the Jim Jarmusch film, Coffee & Cigarettes with RZA, GZA and Bill Murray for all those who been sleeping. And about the whole Clan in-feuding, Ghost needs to stop flaking. This is gonna be the last Wu album that either anyone will care about or the last one they put out altogether.

That was deep, BP. Thanks for that, and love once again to all of Donda's fam.
Posted by: Jay Smooth at November 12, 2007 9:26 PM
Smooth, sorry for the explosion.
Some have been expressing tact in reference to the cause of death of Dr. Donda West.
Others have already put it out there.
I'm sure you've heard.
When I found out the cause, I was pissed off.
And that's what came to mind.
And I'm not even a Kanye West fan.
I don't mess with none of those pop guys.
But that shit is insignificant at this level.
And now on the way home, I just started thinking how many other women have more or less killed themselves because they'd rather not live if people reject their difference.
They'd rather roll the dice on those operations.
I swear, people are so fuckin lucky I don't have a voice along the lines of one of their favourite celebs.
I would really be settin so much shit off.

Man, I just wanted to say big big up for doing what you do. I just found your blog recently and have been going through the archives at hiphopmusic to catch up on things I might have missed.
Your humor combined with intellectual insight and rhythmic speech makes every vlog educational as well as entertaining.
Thanks a lot man, keep up the high caliber you got goin'.

I DO BELIEVE IN THE RZA, I DO BELIEVE IN THE RZA
[and I don't see why that's so farfetched generally speaking, maybe not so much with the spacebots, but hip hop's always been so innovative and tech embracing forefrontal]

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.
