RZA ft. David Banner - Straight Up The Block

Tags: RZA
Featuring:
Producer:
RZA & David Banner
Album:
Digi Snacks

Does anyone have a clue as to what goes on in RZA’s mind? The Wu-Tang Clan chief takes a trip to another planet (scratch that, universe) with his new track, Straight Up The Block, and doesn’t plan on coming back anytime soon. Co-piloting the song is the equally eccentric David Banner, resulting in a North-South collision of bizarre originality. Banner’s tweaked-out beat falls somewhere between nauseating and terrifying, providing the perfect backdrop to RZA’s screwed vocals. The icing on the cake (or should I say coup de grâce) is his second verse, a recitation of basic French words straight out of a phrasebook. Straight Up The Block will be featured on RZA’s upcoming album Digi Snacks (out July 24), released under his unpredictable alias Bobby Digital.
