The Wu-Tang Manual is The RZA’s first written advent to the philosophy and historical past of Hip-Hop’s unique Dynasty, the Wu-Tang Extended family.

Written in a mode that may be directly non-public and philosophical, The Wu-Tang Manual unravels the complex internet of personalities (and change egos), warrior codes, numerological techniques, and Jap religious ethics that outline the Wu-Tang dynasty. Choked with knowledge that displays the breadth and intensity of the RZA’s — and remainder of the Extended family’s — highbrow pursuits and passions, The Wu-Tang Manual is split into 4 books of 9 chambers each and every, for a complete of 36 chambers. All in combination, the guide supplies the breakdown of very important Wu-Tang elements, from elementary details about each and every of the 9 center participants of Wu-Tang Extended family to deeper explorations of the important thing topics of the Wu-Tang universe, a dictionary-like Wu-Slang lexicon, and a complete component of Wu-Tang lyrics with densely annotated motives of what they imply. For the hardcore Wu-Tang disciple and the up to date start up alike, The Wu-Tang Manual is the definitive information to the essence of Wu, one of the leading edge hip-hop teams of all time.

The RZA’s so much up to date guide, The Tao of Wu, may be to be had from Riverhead Books.
