Another Chess Rapper

From "DJ Muggs, Gza Get Their Chess Game Up With Grandmasters" at
On Sunday (August 21), DJ Muggs gave selected media the first preview of his upcoming album, entitled DJ Muggs vs. Gza: Grandmasters, a collaborative album between the Cypress Hill's Muggs and Wu-Tang's Gza.

As far as the title and theme of the project, it's a reference to chess, a favorite pastime of the Genius....

"The highest level of the chess masters is the Grandmaster. The highest level of the DJ or the emcee is the Grandmaster -- it's synonymous with both," Muggs explained.
Genius? After this, someone is going to have to work hard to convince me that our culture isn't destined for the trash heap of history.
