After explaining how the world’s view of America is based on the president in office per his own observations during his global travels over the years, RZA said that his vote of confidence comes from the fundamentals of this country. “What that means for me as a world traveler is the image of our president affects us who travel around the world—it affects the worldview of us,” he told The Daily Beast. “So when we put in a black man as president, we kind of fulfilled what the principles of our country are: to look at us as that guiding light. So, if we did it with a black man, I think, for our image, it would be very unique for us to do it with a woman, because that follows the principles of what we are saying this country is.”
Ghostface recently offered the same co-sign. “Right now, I would say Hillary,” he told Business Insider earlier this year. “You know, women have been through a lot in this country. And I would like to take a woman’s opinion just to see the outcome and what it may be. And plus her husband, he’s … been president before. And I think it’d be interesting.”
RZA is currently jamming with Interpol frontman Paul Banks for their new collaborative duo, Bankz and Steelz, set to release their Warner Bros. Records debut album Anything But Words on Aug. 26.
