The Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA with Purling chess set on Chess Life Magazine cover

American Grammy award winning music producer, author, rapper and founder of the Wu-Tang Clan, RZA was interviewed by Adisa Banjoko and photographed by Mike Relm. The three men share a passion for chess and music: Banjoko and RZA work together through the Hip Hop Chess Federation; Relm is a pioneer video remix artist & photographer whose work is often inspired by the game.

Adisa Banjoko interviewed RZA for Chess Life Magazine (which you may remember from Netflix’s ‘The Queen’s Gambit‘), in which they discussed the Shaolin temple, kung-fu, hip hop and chess. RZA started learning chess at the age of 11 and it has been a strong influence in his life and artistic work. For the Wu-Tang Clan and RZA, chess is part of the “Wu essence”. In ‘The Wu-Tang Manuel’, RZA states.
