ROCK OF ASIAN: The RZA’s "Afro Samurai" Soundtrack, Volume II

January 14th, 2009 | 1 comment | Posted by Diana

Fans of the series Afro Samurai (the domestic interpretasian of the original Japanese manga series on Spike, that is) will be glad to know that another round is right on the horizon. Afro Samurai: Resurrection, the series’ film sequel, will debut on January 25 and feature the returning voice of lead Samuel L. Jackson, accompanied, among others, by Lucy Liu and Mark Hamill.

Perhaps more importantly, though, is the additional return of Afro Samurai‘s music maker–soundtrack master The RZA. Few have mastered the art of Blasian Fusion quite like The RZA, and the veteran composer/producer was given total creative control on this project, as he told HipHopDX. Given carte blanche, he could very well have created his life’s greatest musical achievement! We suppose there’s only one way to find out…

Reasons why RZA should be an honorary member of the tribe:

  1. He already belongs to a Chinese clan
  2. He’s obsessed with kung fu
  3. He supported Hillary Clinton like so many other Asian-Americans
  4. He loves him some Prayer Hands
  5. A lifelong chess player, he started an online chess website (wuchess.com) last week for fans to simultaneously play and get news about the Wu
  6. Dude is foiiiiiiiiine!
