The Wu-Tang Clan member released the acclaimed ‘Liquid Swords’ record on November 7, 1995, with it going on to be considered an all-time classic hip-hop album.

In January, GZA was among the Wu-Tang rappers to pay tribute to the group’s mentor Popa Wu, who passed away at the age of 63.

Meanwhile, last year it was reported that Jimmy Kang, the vice president of Wu-Tang Clan Management, was planning to build a theme park based around the rap crew in South Korea. At the time, Kang said he was negotiating for the park to open in Seoul. No further details on a possible opening date or potential rides that could be included have been revealed at present.
