“I will keep a Bible or Koran on me at all times – the Bible I can actually carry on my phone, and any hotel you go to have a Bible, but the Koran is harder. I keep a physical Koran in my guitar case and put it on the table in hotel rooms so, after a day’s work, I can read a few verses.”-Rza


Greatest Rza Quotes And Sayings


“While a lot of hip-hop was inspired by jazz or James Brown samples and was made to be played live in the clubs, I made hip-hop that was made for MCs to eat the mic up.

“I’m glad Wu-Tang was able to inspire other producers and artists, but I would never want to be erased or removed.”-Rza

Top Rza Quotes About Love

“I stopped with the red meat, let go of turkey and chicken, and then I held onto fish. When we finished ‘Wu-Tang Forever,’ I felt like I evolved and completely dived into veganism.”-Rza
