GZA, aka The Genius, aka “the most cerebral MC in the Wu-Tang Clan” stopped at the Howard Theatre in DC recently to perform his highly acclaimed second solo studio album Liquid Swords, and I was there to take some photos.
Following his performance of several tracks off Liquid Swords, his 1995 solo album, GZA surprised the crowd by performing versions of Wu-Tang Clan classics “Clan in da Front,” “Protect Ya Neck,” “C.R.E.A.M.,” and “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing Ta F’ Wit.” GZA also covered “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” in tribute to Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
