Jay Z may have found himself in the hot seat for sporting that symbol belonging to the Five Percent Nation, that of which Hova has no part of (Just ask Lord Jamar), but RZA has granted Jigga a pass.
“Jay Z is not an active member — no one has vouched for him. It was always understood that you don’t wear the ¬regalia if you don’t totally subscribeto the life.” ~Saladin, Five Percent Nation
The Wu-Revolution leader — who is known for being “meta-religious, combining elements of the Five Percent Nation and Zen Buddhism” — comes with this word less than a month after members from the Five Percent Nation checked Mister ‘Marcy Projects-Barneys New York-Crooklyn’ Carter for disrespecting the religion.
Ironically, the Barclays Center shot that set it off was snapped on April Fools Day.
Check what the Wu-Revolution leader had to say about it:
“Knowledge is free for all men. Nobody can say ‘That’s my knowledge.’ It belongs to the world. If he has knowledge of self and has the confidence to wear what that symbolizes…he should be able to wear that…”
Is RZA placing his so-called religious beliefs aside to jump on Jigga’s Barneys train? Of course! Know why? Because he’s on that milk and honey tip. Just ask Hustle Simmons.
