RZA unveils the manuscript demystifying and decoding the legend of WU-TANG. "The WU-TANG Manual" is a very insightful and entertaining look inside of the culture of one of hip hop's all time greatest groups. The Wu-Tang Manual unravels the intricate web of core members (RZA, GZA, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God & Masta Killa), their warrior codes, numerological systems, and Eastern spiritual ethics that define the Wu-Tang dynasty. Here you'll find the key to Shaolin, to the Nine Rings and to the 36 Chambers, to the eight-point sun and to the rest of the enduring mysteries of Wu-Tang. The manual is divided into four "BOOKS" each with nine "Chambers" (36 Chambers). The Wu-Tang Manual also contains the first official and comprehensive lyrical encyclopedia of the Wu-Tang and RZA's production methods and recording technology. Highly recommended even for the casual fan.
