Back at the 36 Chamber stage, RZA was back to hosting duties. Just before he brought Mobb Deep to the stage, the RZArector brought out two unsung heroes: Matty C and Scott Free of Loud Records, the first label to sign Wu-Tang Clan. Quoting GZA’s classic line, “Who’s your A&R? A mountain climber who plays an electric guitar?” RZA explained that Matty C and Scott Free were the first A&Rs he met who were actually from the hood and truly understood hip-hop culture. They didn’t get much of a reception from the crowd but the props were richly deserved—if you don’t know now ya know.
