When You Interview a Wu Tang Clan Member, There’s the Potential It Might Not Go So Smoothly


The Onion A.V. Club’s Nathan Rabin had the joy of interviewing rapper Ghostface Killah in which Killah answered 36 questions in just over 13 minutes.

In other words, I’m not sure Killah was all that into being interviewed.

The A.V. Club: What’s your favorite part of touring?
Ghostface Killah: Nothing. Just performing.

AVC: What can you say about the new album?
GK: What do you want to know about it?

Then, later:

AVC: What do you listen to?
GK: I listen to shit. I listen to old music, man.

AVC: Like soul music?
GK: Yeah, soul music.

AVC: Who are some of your favorite soul artists?
GK: [No answer.]

When Killah does open up, though, the A.V. Club doesn’t do him any favors in cleaning up some minor grammar points:

AVC: Why do you think Bulletproof Wallets wasn’t as well-received as your other albums?

GK: Because it didn’t get marketed and promoted right. And I got a lot of songs tooken off of it. That’s all.

A trainwreck of an interview, to be sure, but blindly fascinating, too.
