RZA

RZA has occasionally reappeared as Bobby Digital since debuting the persona in 1998 with Bobby Digital In Stereo, but it’s been 13 years since he’s done so when he put out 2008’s Digi Snacks. Today, however, he’s returned with a new Bobby Digital track called “Pugilism” and the promise of a new album called Bobby Digital: Digital Potions. As Rolling Stone points out, “Pugilism” is a track that RZA has talked about before in conjunction with his long-in-the-works album The Cure but seems to have landed as a Bobby Digital song. Listen to it below.

Have you ever really stopped and thought about how intricate and difficult the process of making a successful album must be? There is, of course, the basic issue of inspiration. Every artist must wring something out from deep within themselves and try to make it cohere outside in the world, make it tangible enough that it communicates something to the listener — and even icons have their struggles with writer’s block. You might come up with seven or 10 brilliant compositions, but then still have nothing lyrically, or vice versa. And that’s just the writing. There are the players, the recording circumstances, the money, the ability or luck that results in a once-in-a-lifetime performance. While not quite on the level of, say, a major blockbuster production, it can be dizzying to consider the amount of factors that must fall into place for something as comparatively contained as an album to work. It’s a wonder we get as many great ones as we do.

This whole thing began last month, when Timbaland and Swizz Beatz spent a few hours attempting to […]
