Reebok Classics and Rock The Bells brings you the exclusive: Classic Albums by Classic Artists featuring RZA of the famous Wu Tang Clan.

“I try to make albums like movies, man.” Catching up with RZA behind the scenes at Rock the Bells, it was clear that he sees everything through the prism of a movie screen, including Wu-Tang’s 1993 classic album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). When asked how it all came together, he compared the platinum album’s genre-busting style and MC collaboratoin to John Woo’s 1989 cult classic Hong Kong action film The Killer, just don’t ask us what it means. RZA’s lyrical genius is as prolific and out-there as ever, so grab yourself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and take a trip to Shaolin…RZA does not disappoint.

A biopic about the legendary West Coast rap group, N.W.A has been in the works for some time now with former group member Ice Cube, named as one of the producers. Recently John Singleton revealed that he might direct the film.

In an interview with Indie Wire’s The Playlist, Singleton said that has been in contact with Cube, the star of his classic 1991 flick, Boyz N the Hood, to be involved in the project.

“I can’t talk about it too prematurely about the stuff I’m doing because nothing’s come to fruition yet, but Cube and I are talking about doing the N.W.A story,” he said. “The script is really, really good, and so we’re just figuring it out. New Line really wants to make it.”

It was originally reported that the flick, titled Straight Outta Compton, after the group’s 1988 breakout song of the same name, will be written by a Andrea Berloff (World Trade Center), which cause some controversy because she is a Caucasian. Since then three more people have been added to help pen the script, Leigh Savidge, Alan Wenkus and Matt Alvarez.
