RZA Details His Problem With Twerking

RZA says Miley Cyrus is old enough to do what she wants, talks lack of discretion among youth.

Over the past few months, the dance craze known as twerking has worked its way into countless music videos and other outlets, but according to Wu-Tang Clan emcee RZA, the trend is something that demonstrates a lack of discretion among young people.

While promoting his new film Brick Mansions, RZA spoke with Vlad TV about those in the U.S. taking advantage of the freedom they’re given. He then referred to that abundance of freedom as something that can at times be a curse.

“My issue is just that the youth is the shortest part of your life,” RZA said. “And most people waste it. The woman won’t realize her womanhood until she’s 30. And then she gotta go back and think about the 20, 30 guys she done slept with or the things she did that’s foolish. That she’s ashamed to say to her son or daughter. So, why put that much karma on yourself? You know what I mean? Grow and develop yourself. Find yourself. One thing about our country in America is that we have so much freedom that it becomes a problem for us. A curse to us. You’re free to do anything that you want to do. If you’re free to do anything you wanna do then you have no discretion on yourself. And I just think that it should be more discretion for young people.”

RZA later defended pop star Miley Cyrus, who he says can now do what she wants due to her age.

He also took note of the fact that we live in a time when everything is recorded or documented in some way, and a video of someone could easily surface years from now.

“Now Miley Cyrus who’s now 22 now, right? She can drink. She can do what she want now,” he said. “But when you’re 15, 16, 17, 18, no. You can’t even go to the store and buy cigarettes yet. And you wanna be twerking? And having men look at you as a sexual item? That’s the biggest thing. People don’t realize that ‘Yo, you’re captured.’”

Over the past year, Miley Cyrus has had the opportunity to collaborate with a number of rap artists/producers including Mike WiLL Made It, Wiz Khalifa, and French Montana.

    I love Rza but his reasons for not liking Twerking are stupid and ignorant. Another thing is that Miley Cyrus is not the reason for twerking becoming as big as its become. Hence 2 Live Crew.

  • America > Islam & Black People

    "One thing about our country in America is that we have so much freedom that it becomes a problem for us. A curse to us." So this faggot wants to turn the country into Western Iraq and have all the women stuck in their houses for the rest of their lives dressed in all black getting beat down by their husbands?

    this nigga is so irrelevent why is he making news about his shitty opinions. Drake is more sucessfull in 3 years than all of wutang combined so you hhdx staff idiots need to make news about drake or gtfo. Drake runs this rap shit and we all know wutang fans get no pussy. No females fuck with some old hasbins music they only fuck with that new drake shit.

      I know you're trolling, but Drake & Wu Tang shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence.

    • drake runs rap

      dam, take drakes dick out your booty five seconds and realize wu-tang only makes music now for their die hard fans. They probably don't give two shits about being relevant anymore

    • Outtahea

      LOL, only bitches listen to Drake. Now what does that make you??

    • Anonymous

      RZA's fallen the fuck off. He was relevant back then but now now. Remember, what drake raps about is entertainment. That's his choice. Anyway, drake paid tribute to wu tang

      RZA is a very important part of hip hop, the way he structured deals, the way he came up in the crack culture. Drake grew up in a nice house and starred in a wack tv show. The difference the way they grew up is bigger than anything else. Plus RZA has made some of the beats ever. Drake just sings and then raps about shit no one in their right mind believes about. I know our trolling and it is kind of funny but your better than that!

Maybe that is a high point in those girls lives though. They can tell their grand kids about sucking some Wu Tang dick.
