Check it, RZA talking about their Messenger Days:
“GZA always had a job: he was a bike messenger for at least three years. He was making good money though – I think a bike messenger, at that time, they could make up to five, six hundred dollars a week. I was a foot messenger, me and ODB. Like, in Derailed, I played a mail clerk, and the character I played was actually thinking of myself back in those days as a messenger. Dirty would walk in these places with a package and a 40! We got a 40 for breakfast every day, man. That was just us.”
Thanks Joe from http://messmedia.org/ for the history!
