Wu-Tang Clan frontman RZA and A1 Record Shop manager Jeremie Delon chat about music, records and staying true.

Earlier this year we brought RZA to our home in the highlands of Scotland, and this time he repaid the favour and brought us to New York City aka the place where he started his hip-hop career. 

Whilst we were in NYC we visited A1 Record Shop in the East Village where RZA caught up with store manager Jeremie Delon and South African journalist and musician, Siya Metane, otherwise known as SlikourOnLife to chat about all things music, records, and the RZA Presents: Ballantine’s x Crosley C6 Record Player. 

Watch the video below.
