GZA: Performs Liquid Swords – Australian Dates January 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on November 9, 2011

Thought provoking, street-bred and TWu-Tang Clan’s fountain of wisdom, GZA will return this summer for a few special shows in Sydney and Melbourne. He will perform is second album Liquid Swords.

For this visit he will be joined by an impressive amount support in Pharoahe Monch, Jean Grae, Rahzel with JS-1.

Without a doubt one of the most influential artists in the history of hip hop, his work with Wu Tang as well as his solo albums has earned him a reputation as one of the most credible and respected rappers working today.

What sets him apart from the flock of imitators and the uninspired is simple: his lyrics. His albums bounce from tales of the Samurai with Liquid Swords to an exploration of Chess as a metaphor for the rap game with GrandMasters. Match this with producers like RZA (Wu-Tang Clan; Liquid Swords) and DJ Muggs (Cypress Hill; GrandMasters) and what you get is hip-hop of a calibre that can tear through the gaudy battlements of the mainstream rap world and splinter into your organs like a lyrical hollow-point.
