Wu Tang Clan member TZA has just released a guided meditation music album, titled “Camp TAZO: Zen”.

You might remember RZA and Wu Tang Clan from such classic tracks as “shame on a nigga”, “Wu Tang Clan Aint Nuthin’ Ta F-With”, and “Dog Shit”. You may have also heard that RZA is currently involved in the making the movie Cut Throat City.

But when RZA isn’t involved with rap of movies about throat-cutting, he can be found in Nirvana created guided meditations.

Camp TAZO: Zen is a five track EP of guided meditation music that he produced in collaboration with TAZO tea, a herbal tea blender and distributor.

By the way if something seems a little weird about this whole concoction… yeah, I hear ya.

In the album RZA tells you to find a “chill environment” (probably not in Cut Throat City, then), and, later, he tells you remove any negative thoughts that aren’t conducive to inner thoughts. Mixed into the light beats are all kinds of self-help advice and ideas of peace.

I’m still scratching my head over this one. It seems literally everyone in the universe has some form of mindfulness product out these days.

  1. Instead of your crappy attitude about it you should be taking the stance that ANYONE can meditate. Regardless of their career, what image they have been paid to represent etc. I think it’s amazing that he went from Wu Tang (which is legendary in my opinion) to making meditations. Shit your judgement down.
