Everybody who knows Jonathan Hay, knows that he is a huge fan of anything and everything Wu-Tang Clan. So it was a great honor for him to be in the recording studio with RZA during this filming earlier this year. This isn’t the first time Jonathan Hay has worked with RZA, no, actually, it started about 10 years ago when Cilvaringz (Tarik Azzougarh) asked Jonathan Hay to join Ringz & Partners Entertainment, the international representation of RZA.
Read the story by clicking here of the Scratch Magazine cover story placement orchestrated by Jonathan Hay for RZA on behalf of Ringz & Partners Entertainment.
On a side note, we ABSOLUTELY love what RZA and Cilvaringz are doing with the Once Upon A Time in Shaolin art. It’s brilliant!!! Read about it here at Rolling Stone or The Guardian.
Jonathan Hay and DJ King Tech (Shade 45) have just wrapped up the production phase of a project that is Executive Produced by Mike Smith. The album was mastered by Bernie Grundman and is being released through major retail in June of 2015 and features major rap stars and high-profile collaborations.
This project is one of the most expensive debut albums in recent memory, as this project is loaded all across the board with world-class talent from top to bottom of this creation.
The trio of Smith, Hay and Tech will be debuting a single on Sway in the Morning sometime here within weeks. #PRIMETIME
