Yo RZA, yo razor,

from Wu-Tang Clan – Shame on a Nigga Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

While the origin of his name is adding the -za to R(obert), his first name, Wu-Tang members were quick to liken his name to the word “razor,” often used to praise his “sharp” rhyming and production.

Also, the names RZA and GZA came from the sound that was made when you’d scratch the words “razor” and “genius” respectively on a record. Hence RZA the Razor, as well as GZA the Genius. There also have been those who have said that in the early days of Wu RZA’s style was described as short and sharp like a razor, where GZA took more of a slow, thoughtful approach like a genius. Wu Tang is for the children.
