The American musician RZA has released his new hip hop track called ‘Be Like Water.’ – Listen Below.

“His quote ‘Be water my friend’ is profound and multi-tiered in the definition. It inspires the idea that in adapting to life situations, sometimes we have to flow smoothly as a stream, while other times we have to crash like a tsunami.”
