"RZA Wins Chess Competition!"


Wu-Tang Clan's love affair with chess is well documented, but for as much as they talk about the game of strategy, I personally always assumed it was more of a hobby than anything particularly serious. Silly me, because now Wu leader RZA is a certified Chess King, and he's got the 20-pound, gold-plated leather belt to prove it, according to a report.

The report names RZA as the winner of the previously reported 1st Annual Chess Kings Invitational, which went down this past weekend in San Francisco. The Abbott's victim in the final round? One of his own: Wu affiliate Monk.

We obviously can't beat him, but we can still join RZA and the rest of the Clan for the release of their new album, 8 Diagrams, on December 4.
