RZA discusses moving beyond money and making music strictly for the sake of artistic expression. Freed from thoughts of financial compensation, he explains the ease of working with John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on personal projects and freely contributing to the BlakRoc album.
We just make music. I’ve made 100 songs this year, and probably nobody won’t hear them but us who made it. It feels good, yo. It feels good to do it with no strings attached. Not having to worry about if somebody is gonna criticize it, if it’s gonna sell. I’m past that.
