RZA Explains How Hip Hop Artists Are Now Competing In Headphones
The Abbott says that selling the most headphones may be the new gold standard among Hip Hop's biggest. RZA also says that he, Diddy and Dr. Dre should have the best, as producers.
Wu-Tang Clan co-founder RZA took his Chambers headphone line to market earlier this week. The veteran deejay/producer/emcee recently spoke to Billboard.com. After previously branching into film, fashion and executive producing a number of projects, RZA asserted that producers are a natural progression for musicians who are focused on sound quality.
Speaking about competing against Dr. Dre's Beats By Dre headphones as well as recent creations from Diddy, 50 Cent and Ludacris, RZA said, "I don't like to compete against my own crew, meaning, Hip Hop...But you do want to sell the most records, have the biggest song and win the Grammy." The E1 Entertainment artist continued, "With much respect to the other guys, [Dr.] Dre is a producer and I'm a producer," he said. "If anyone is into sound and dealing with sound, it's more the producer than a rapper. We get more technical."
