Watch RZA Burn Through Bars in 9-Minute Funk Flex Freestyle

The Wu-Tang architect proves his place in the hip-hop pantheon with a brooding 9-minute freestyle

It’s virtually impossible to keep up with RZA these days. One second he’s claiming Azealia Banks is flying off the handle at an elite Hollywood dinner party, the next he’s releasing a film starring the tarnished Harlem rapper and coming clean about the alleged spectacle, claiming that Banks was provoked by Russel Crowe when the actor spit at her. No matter who you believe, the release of the new Wu-Tang compilation, The Saga Continues, is a welcomed break from all non-music-related RZA headlines.

During his press run for the album, released by his newly-minted 36 Chambers LLC lifestyle company, RZA dropped by the venerably, though increasingly irrelevant, Funkmaster Flex‘s studio, with the album’s producer, Mathematics, to keep it strictly lyrical. For his part, Bobby Digital did not disappoint, ripping through nearly nine consecutive minutes of phone-prepped daggers, first over A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s “Drowning,” then over Jay-Z’s “Ain’t No.” You can watch it in full above.
