RZA Talks 'Wu-Tang Manual,' Possible Follow Up

Wu Tang Clan leader

The RZA recently discussed his venture into the book world, with the release of

his book "The Wu-Tang Manual."

The book is RZA’s first written work and contains his thoughts, a dictionary

containing “Wu Slang,” a section devoted to an analysis of Wu Tang’s

lyrics, never-before-seen photos of the group and other offerings.

RZA said he was pleased with the results of the first book and

hinted that a follow-up was in the works.

“I can't tell you when the second part is coming out,”

RZA said. “We're keeping that a secret for the moment."

RZA, who is currently in the studio recording a new album with

Method Man, said the response to the book was overwhelming.

“I have little kids come up to me saying [The Wu-Tang

Manual] changed their lives and perspectives on life,” RZA said.

According to RZA, more people have shown up for his in-store

booking signing than for album releases. “One girl came up to me and said

she had bought ten copies of the book and gave it away to all her girlfriends

to read,” RZA
