5.0 out of 5 stars The World According to RAP 28 May 2003
By DL Productions UK TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Rap and hip hop have grown a lot, and since the early 90s, rap has not only just grown, but it's moved into other cultures. Rap is now a very big part of global culture, countries like Japan and China both have hip hop groups and a following of the culture. Rap is an universal language, which won't be shut out as we can see here. Rappers like Sian Supa Crew are in full flow, and the return of IAM was very very much welcome. Sweeden's offerings, Petter and Feven have great skills, and put some great flows on this RZA release.
It's not only France and Sweeden who "represent" well on here, Germany's Xavier Naidoo has a lot to offer. He brings along Debroah Cox, normally an R&B artist. The track is memorable.
UK isn't forgotten here either - the crew Bronz`n`Blak and the infamous Blade. For me, they were not as strong as the French rappers.
Italy and Norway's offerings were pretty good, it's nice to hear music from countries you didn't know rapped. Diaz and Frankie Hi NRG are both striking artists.
Looking over the album, you have to wonder where is everyone else? This to me sounds like Europe According to RZA, I would have loved to hear raps from Japan, Korea, Austrailia and Fiji. Would have made an interesting album. Maybe a CD for each continent would have been cool.
Otherwise, I really can't find anything to complain about this album, it's top class and I salute RZA for including rappers outside the US and UK, and I think it's cool that he enjoys raps from other countries. Must say this is one of the most exciting projects in my opinion. I have been waiting for a rapper to do this for a long time. All I can say is this is great, if you like rap and have a broad music taste, listen to this, you won't be disapointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wu Tang World Wide 28 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After a few years in the making many may ask is this album worth the wait? Well Rza has certainly picked some unique rappers from around Europe to provide lyrics on this new release. If rapping in a foreign language bothers you then unfortunately I would not recommend this album. However, if you don't mind listening through the numerous languages or - like me - you actually quite like the fresh new sound, then there are some solidly produced tracks here. The good tracks are numerous and include Saian, Please Tend L'oreille, Dedicace, Boing Boing and especially the final track - Uzathan Gelen Ses - which hosts some raw sounding hip-hop heads of Turkish origin rapping in both Turkish & English. This final track is really something and possesses a raw, hardcore feel altough it is unclear who produced the track.
On the downside there are two weaker tracks that do not seem to fit in with the feel of the album. Souls ON Fire & I've Never Seen... both featuring Xavier Naidoo, have a laid back feel but seem out of place on an album that is, on the whole, fast paced and raw.
Was it worth the wait? I would say yes and lets hope for more of the same in the rest of 2003. Its been a while since some good Wu style hip hop and as it has been ten years since the release of Enter the Wu Tang: 36 Chambers lets hope for some more. Personally I think it makes a refreshing change to listen to some hip hop that has some imagination and doesn't harp on about guns, honeys, drugs, and hardness for track after track after track...

5.0 out of 5 stars quality album - unique concept 30 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
well, it's been a long time coming but it's finally here, RZA's new album featuring MCs from across europe: the World According to RZA.
first things first, what is the point of this album? the point is that RZA wants to break the language barrier of hiphop and show the growth that hiphop has made, that people all over the world rap and that hiphop music is universal; to spread the music through different regions and languages. he succeeds.
musically, the album is excellent. he shows different sides of himself through the music, he makes songs we didn't think he could make. this isn't just hiphop, it's just music. soul, rnb, typical rap tracks, he has rappers on here alongside singers from across europe and despite the huge variation in styles and influences he manages to keep it sounding like an album, rather than just a collection of songs.
He manages to bring the patented RZA sound but explores other musical avenues, experimenting in the musics that inspired him.
if you just like hiphop, you will like this album and its still worth getting, but if you can appreciate music other than hiphop this is a must buy.
there is a good selection of MCs and singers on this album from across europe, from england we have the likes of skinnyman, from france (probably the most featured country) Bam, Saian Supa Crew, IAM among others, germany have xavier naidoo, etc. even smaller hiphop nations such as italy and sweden are featured.
that brings me to the one drawback of this album. with all the languages featured you will not be able to understand half the album.
