GZA who has already worked with Black Lips and King Khan, once again sees the rapper working with an indie act in the form of producer and multi-instrumentalist Mocky on the track ‘Birds Of A Feather’.
“When I was making this record my dream was that it would get sampled and used in hip-hop tracks,” Mocky told Spinner, “so to have someone like GZA do a verse over a loop from that record, it’s like a dream come true.”
Finding they have more in common than first thought, Mocky explained the similarities that the pair shared.
“I was a chess champion growing up in Canada and GZA raps about chess,” Mocky said. “A lot of my music is about animals – I did my first tour around the zoos of Europe, playing matinee concerts near the monkey cages. GZA also is very inspired by the natural world.”
Mocky who is set to head into the studio with Feist in January to work on a follow-up to her 2007 album ‘The Reminder’, also revealed how his work with the Wu Tang Clan rapper might not be just a one-off.
He said: “I’m just so happy to hear GZA on a ‘National Geographic’ flow rapping about birds, if there’s a way to have this be the tip of the iceberg, then that would be great by me.”
