    You should hear the RNS remix of it, even doper. His drum game was more advanced than RZAs then. "Gotta Have Game" and "Life Is A Struggle" are two other songs off the same tape. This is the very first demos ever sent to Tommy Boy to promote RZA and the Clan. I think I have the cover of the actual tape on my Instagram somewhere.

    I assume this is from the monica lynch podcast (forgot whos it was) a year or two back. She showed the song there. They said full thing was on their patreon or something. I just know it was her and she spoke about rza a lot.

    Yeah it's from The Cipher Show. The Cipher Show is run by one of the found of RapGenius as far as I can remember. A lot of germs can be found there

    Here's the instrumental from the tape https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icVVl6SotaQ
