I puta te pēne o tarawāhi a Wu-Tang Clan ki te papa whakatu waewae o Raggamuffin i ngā rangi okioki nei, me te whakamiharo a tētahi o ōna mema ki te ahurea Maōri.

Hikaka katoa ana te tini ngerongero o Tāmaki ki te pēne Wu-Tang Clan.

Engari muri mai i ngā mahi i te papatū waewae, whakamiharo ana te rōpū Hip Hop ki te ahurea Māori.

"We did get a greeting last night, an official Māori greeting, at cong and ah, it was interesting, noticed first of all the tradition is part of the ancestry here" hei tā RZA no te Wu-Tanga Clan.

Tokowhitu ngā mema o te pēne takitekau i puta ki te whakangahau.

Hei tā te Kaipao a RZA me whakamana te iwi Māori tō rātou ahurea Māori, "As far as colonisation goes, we're a product of colonisation, we black American you know America is a colony but our story is from where we grew up you know a song like C.R.E.A.M tells you how we grew up on the crime side of the New York Times side and staying alive was no job, we got second hand clothes, our mothers and fathers were separated from each other, we moving to different places you know what I mean and there was no way for us to survive besides doing crime.”

Heoi, mo te āhua ki te wherawhera i te ahurei o Amerika ki te ao, kāore he painga i tua atu i tēnā mō te Rōpu pao nei.

"You all gotta remember we started with this in New York city, you know in small neigbourhoods, and you get to travel the world and show our culture and share it with other people so it's always a blessing for us," hei tā RZA.
