“I became the RZA at 23. At that age I was supposed to be having fun, chasing girls and all that. I wound up not chasing girls for years. I started Wu-Tang in 1993 and it took me until 1997 to enjoy our success because I stayed in the basement, studying, becoming the RZA.
It’s been said I create ghetto symphonies. Maybe that’s because I take sounds and noises that are not totally related and make them into a phrase. On ‘Bring Da Ruckus’ you’ll hear a garbage can mixed with finger snaps and a piano in a whole different key. Then you have the distorted bass which is really the only thing that is in sync. You have all this going on then I sampled a CD skipping and used that for my horns! D-D-D-D-D-D-D! I didn’t have a horn so I did that. People went, ‘He makes music outta noise!’”
I want to meet him so bad :(
Digital Divas is a column written for the internet, by Yung Klout Gang’s Lina Abascal, a girl who loves the internet. It’s about young women who (similarly to Lina) have created online personas that have attracted thousands of fans and followers. These are spokeswomen for the emoji-speaking Tumblr-dwelling generation, where thousands of miles of distance can be spanned with a few clicks. Musicians, designers, writers, photographers and more make up a community of global tastemakers and cultural commentators representing the famous motto “girl power” on the world wide web.
The name Molly Soda is almost synonymous with the term ‘Digital Diva.’ Her septum piercing, affinity for Taco Bell, pouty mouth, and friendship with her pet rats drew thousands of online spectators to watch the Puerto Rican-born Chicago resident divulge the perks and pains of being a post-grad opting out of the 9 to 5.
Often pigeonholed as another undeserving recipient of internet fame, Molly has recently released two zines, and an online store re-selling thrifted items and her own clothing to fans around the world.
While she grew her fame by using the internet to her advantage, separation between online and real life has become increasingly important to Molly. Now she would rather spend her time in the passenger seat sippin’ on Baja Blast than livestream herself for ten hours (again.)
