A section of Staten Island honors the Wu-Tang Clan, whose members hail from the community. RZA, who is also a producer and actor, serves as a role model to the students.
"I really want to emphasize that any time somebody who has roots in the community comes back to share their successes, that's the most priceless thing we could have for our school," Principal Jodi Contento told the Staten Island Advance.
The students peppered RZA with questions and requests including if he would work on a song about their school.
To show gratitude, the school gave RZA a piece of wood shaped in the Wu-Tang logo and the school number 78 signed by all the students.
"I still got dreams to fulfill," RZA told the students, the Staten Island Advance reported. "Never stop dreaming, all right?"
