“To me music and film have the same wavelength, ” he said. “A lot of people may have not comprehended that, but I’m on of the kids that did comprehend it. It all activates under the same model. When I was making Wu Tang albums I was actually trying to make movies, so when you listen to a ‘Cuban Linx’ you felt like you were getting a movie in your head. Now that I’ve kind of rose above that I’m making physical movies now with hip hop music sounds as a backdrop to it.”
RZA compared The Man with the Iron Fists to Wu Tang Clan’s 1993 classic album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
“To me this feels as good as ’36 Chambers’. I really feel proud of what I’ve put in there. And I think when fans see this flick it’s going to kind of revitalize to me the whole industry in a sense because what I did for what I had for my resources it’s really like going back to that first ’36 Chambers’ album,” he explained.
