  • Summary: The Wu-Tang producer returns to his RZA moniker with this latest solo release, after two previous albums under the "Bobby Digital" name.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 11
  2. Negative: 2 out of 11
  1. For Wu-Headz, this is the piece of the RZA puzzle we've been waiting a decade for. It's that important.
  2. It's as esoteric as you'd expect RZA to be. But it's also more Wu.
  3. The latest in a long line of frustratingly hit and miss solo efforts.
  4. 60
    Makes a fair case that few hip hop beat men can match the prolific musical canon of the RZA. [Dec 2003, p.214]
  5. While many will no doubt see this as an unfocused record, those who take it on more of a song-by-song basis will value it as a respectable addition to RZA's body of work.
  6. On most of this album he doesn't sound completely off his game, just uninspired, both as an MC and a producer.
  7. All in all, Birth of a Prince seems more like a stepping stone to better things than a fully fledged work in its own right.
