RZA as Bobby Digital Digi Snacks
More consistent then 8 Diagrams and fresher than Ghostface’s The Big Doe Rehab, Digi Snacks is the most impressive Wu-affiliated album of the past year. And it might just be RZA’s most consistent solo effort, too. As with previous Bobby Digital affairs, it’s not always clear where the character and the real RZA begin and end (though “You Can’t Stop Me Now” is pretty much an autobiographical treatise). Musically, however, the Abbot shows that he’s still one of hip-hop’s most original producers. Striking a seamless balance between sample-based production and organic contributions from John Frusciante, Dhani Harrison, and Stone Mecca, Digi Snacks is familiar enough to please Wu loyalists and just weird enough to bug them out.
