The RZA: Show Preview

The producer known as The RZA (real name: Robert Diggs) is largely known as the architect of the Wu-Tang Clan's deathly spare beats and signature instrumental sound. But he's also spent more than a decade releasing four solo albums and composing soundtracks for such diverse films as Kill Bill, Ghost Dog, The Protector, and Afro Samurai. Lately, he's been producing tracks for Jay-Z and Kanye West, and generally seems to prefer the reclusive darkness of the studio. But The RZA does break out of his shell for occasional performances with his live band; he has been known to play several instruments himself, including guitar, piano, and zither.
