From the founder of the Wu-Tang Clan—celebrating their 25th anniversary this year—an inspirational book for the hip hop fan.

The RZA, founder of the Wu-Tang Clan, imparts the lessons he's learned on his journey from the Staten Island projects to international superstardom. A devout student of knowledge in every form in which he's found it, he distills here the wisdom he's acquired into seven "pillars," each based on a formative event in his life-from the moment he first heard the call of hip-hop to the death of his cousin and Clan- mate, Russell Jones, aka ODB. Delivered in RZA's unmistakable style, at once surprising, profound, and provocative, The Tao of Wu is a spiritual memoir the world has never seen before, and will never see again. A nonfiction Siddhartha for the hip-hop generation from the author of The Wu-Tang Manual, it will enlighten, entertain, and inspire.

    This book is a thought provoking look into the intelligence, logic and spirituality of the RZA. As a longtime fan from the BX and admirer I throughly enjoyed and learned from this book. I highly recommend it to true Wu fans and hood intellectuals.

    Not only is this an incredible autobiography by one of modern music's most influential producers, it is an almost endless reservoir of knowledge, philosophy, religious thought, and inspiration. This should be mandatory reading for everyone on the planet.

    I love this book.
