Editors’ Notes

In the past Rza has used his Bobby Digital persona as an outlet for his more experimental impulses. The first two Bobby Digital albums were unrepentantly unorthodox, defiantly dissonant exercises in near avant-garde Hip-Hop productions and cryptic rhymes, based in Rza’s obscure but often compelling personal cosmology. Digi Snacks, represents a significant about face and is easily his most accessible solo album. HereRza trades the moodily abstract soundscapes of Wu-Tang’s The 8 Diagrams for rough-hewn old school funk reminiscent of his recent soundtrack work for Quentin Tarantino. The autobiographical “You Can’t Stop Me Now” yokes the boxy rhythm’s of the Whatnaut’s take on the Temptations’ “Message From a Blackman” with an ominous keyboard line, all to truly impressive effect, while the abstract keyboard noodling and ghostly vocal loops of “Money Don’t Own Me” recall the more adventurous moments of Rza’s earlier Bobby Digital efforts. His trademark lo-fi atmospherics are evident throughout and provide just the right amount of vintage Wu-Tang grit.

Customer Reviews

RZA-Digi Snacks

Seven years since he made an album under his Bobby Digital alias. RZA is back with Digi Snacks and his alias Bobby Digital. Long Time Coming: Rain pours, while unique production of piano, drums, rising and falling xylophones create the backing. Danny Keyz vocoderized hook is a nice touch, as RZA brings you into the world of Bobby Digital. 3.5/5 You Can’t Stop Me Now: With a group of people singing on the chorus, RZA spits stories over a simple drum pattern and a subtle guitar melody. With a smooth bassline and sleek feel, RZA speaks on Wu’s past, as Inspectah Deck fires off about his past. An excellent reflection on the past, Deck spits “I’ma hold my head, stay true to where my heart is, either you play with your life, or you pay dues to homage”. 4/5 Straight Up The Block: David Banner samples a Jay-Z line, while creating an eerie block bumper. Random sounds create a freaky and experimentive track. RZA’s flow is deeper, but the track is a little too weird for me. The odd sounds are unique, a little too out of the world for me. 2.5/5 Booby Trap: With a hilarious hook of “snap it's a booby trap, would you rather have Scooby or a digi snack?” A low riding bassline makes this track, RZA flexes his lyrical expertise throughout. 3/5 Try Ya Ya Ya: Monk adds a decent verse, while Thea Van Seijen sings in a high pitched voice of “try yayayayay”. The track is a decent cut but once again somewhat too experimentive in its creativeness. Decent. 3/5 Good Night Kiss: Thea Van Seijen delivers a soft croon similar to Chrisette Michelle or Billie Holiday. This is the sex track of the album, as Bobby Digital gets to his business. Amongst moans from a girl, RZA adds vivid lyrics about getting it on. Rev. William Burk and Crisis add solid appearances. Solid track. 3.5/5 No Regrets: A dark composition of heart pumping bass and bell rings, as RZA spits with caution and unique flow. The intensity and anxiety is a nice aspect to the track that makes it so effective. 3.5/5 Money Don’t Own Me: With countrified guitar and crooning of Stone Mecca recall the production of “Windmill” off of 8 Diagrams, except much slower in tempo. Monk delivers an energized appearance and the track is decent. 3/5 Creep: From its explosive intro to the unique instruments to create a creepy and perfect environment for the lyrics. Thea Van Seijen provides vocals on the hook, as Northstar, Black Nights and Dexter Wiggles all assist. An experimentive track that works well, props to King Tech on the beat. 3.5/5 Drama: Charmful piano plunks sound straight out of a high school play, as does the production, with Thea Van Seijen delivering a smooth verse. RZA & Monk trade verses on this solid cut about how the hood continues to struggle, while Monk speaks from a gangsta perspective, as RZA has a conversation with him. 3.5/5 Up Again: Solid production of keyboards keys and thumping bass. A load of guests assist on this fun and playful track. Rev. William Burk reflects on his educational upbringing and musical experience. Excellent track here that works nicely and has some introspective lyrically. 4/5 Put Your Guns Down: Star delivers a mediocre hook, while an impactful production works well. RZA’s flow is okay, but lyrically is where he shines, speaking on hood violence. 3/5 My Love Love Is Digi (Pt. 2): A booming bass, slow piano plunking and a soft croon from Thea Van Seijen make for a relaxed and subtle feel. Crisis and Beretta 9 deliver solid performances, as the rapid flow in verse three works really well. 3.5/5 Old Day: Decent track here that has RZA spitting about coke tales and random topics that work well with the beat, as it goes into an old school sound and chase scenario of Bobby Digital. 3/5 The Wolf: A short bonus that has a dude in the background going “uh!”, as RZA lets the lyrics flow. 3/5 RZA’s ever growing imagination works well here. As evident earlier on the 8 Diagrams album, many of the members were disappointed in its diverse sound. However, RZA fully embraces this aspect on Digi Snacks, as his character Bobby Digital is brought back to life and the productions are weird, imaginary, mood setting creations. Lyrically RZA is on point, having fun (Booby Trap), serious (Don’t Be Afraid), love (Good Night Kiss). What makes the album so appealing is its unique productions and hooks that are catchy. “You Can’t Stop Me Now” is an interesting reflection on the past that shows RZA and Deck spitting solid bars. “Long Time Coming” works well to start things off, as “Creep” and “No Regrets” feature some eerie, yet effective anxiety. “Money Don’t Owe Me”, “Try Ya Ya Ya” are decent, as “Up Again” and “Drama” are solid cuts. The album is a testament to RZA’s ability in staying creative, and combining it with hip hop. While he may miss at times, clear example the ill advised David Banner creation “Straight Up The Block”, RZA’s creativeness is welcome in a genre that is suffering from uncreative rehash. Solid album that will be liked by all RZA fans and unique hip hop music. Rating: 8 out of 10

Bobby Digital is an innovator. This C.D. is like musical crack. You've been fiending for it, when you listen to it you’ll get high and zone out, and when you’re not listening to it you’ll go through withdrawal. The only difference is, you don't wake up naked with your hand in a half eaten bag of Cheetos. Buy this C.D.; it’s pure dope. Whoever you are, where ever you come from, BUY THIS ALBUM.

Amusing

It is as good as any other Bobby Digital album. I would recommend it if u liked the other Bobby Digital albums. A Bobby Digital album is basically RZA just screwing around in the studio and making some experimental stuff he wouldn't usually produce or rap about in a Wu-Tang album or as a guest appearance. This covers the same topics as other Bobby Digital albums. The beats definitely have a more martial-art feel to them and some of the instruments used are experimental stuff for RZA. It's cool to see RZA still trying new stuff. It might take a listen or two to understand this album and once you do you will like it. The beats are slower, too, and don't contain "In Your Face" action that is seen in RZA's earlier work. But compared to other Bobby Digital albums, it is not so different. There are so many guest appearances by singers that it's almost annoying. But this album is doing a lot of the same stuff as 8 Diagrams did. Don't be afraid to pick this up because it is definitely a good addition to the Bobby Digital collection.
