Wu-Tang founding member GZA, aka, the Genius, easily ranks among the greatest hip-hop lyricist of all time. He's a rapper's rapper, delivering erudite--yet street approved--rhymes that never dip into cliche or gimmickry. His flow is melodic and assured, making his vocals standout over the sexiest--or even deadest--beats. In addition to his seminal work with Wu-Tang Clan, GZA has released a slew of solo albums during the past two decades including his acclaimed 2008 full-length Pro Tools. He performs April 23 at Detroit Bar. Tickets are $15 (advance) and $20 (day of show).
