RZA talked about the 25-year impact of their iconic debut and about being honored by their hometown, referred to by the group as Shaolin.

We at 25 years, we know we have arrived at our destination. We’re grateful for everyone that’s been a part of this…When we said 36 Chambers, the word chamber was giving everybody an idea that you will go through different chambers in your life. It’s many things that you have to pass through in order to master yourself.
