Wu-Tang: The Mystery of Chessboxin
Wu-Tang Clan's raw and rough sound has been and is still inspiring me and my own musical approach. The imperfect touch, the gritteness is joy to my ears. The album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is my absolute favourite record of all times. Timeless music.

The strong expressions of his art is imposing me a lot.
