Wu heads will appreciate this early interview with the young, optimistic and confident Gza-genius. Though he manages to keep it polite, you can catch flashes of his disillusionment with the industry.

Interview With The Genius (1991)

The Genius (pre-GZA) hit San Francisco with his manager, Melquan (the same Melquan that Just-Ice said “peace” to) the Funky President, to promote his first album, Words From the Genius, on Warner Bros/Cold Chillin’. I believe this was in January or February of 1991. He made a promo/autograph signing appearance at 520 4th Street (old Trocadero Transfer, now Glas Kat), and one of his radio stops was at KPOO-FM 89.5 on the “Soulful Sundays” show with KK Baby. This is a recording of that interview.
