  • songfacts ®
  • Asked during a Reddit AMA what track from Anything But Words moved him the most, RZA replied: "The song 'I'm Gonna Make it' on the album is the one that touches me the most, reason be the third verse touches upon teenage depression and Americas youth epidemic of antidepressant addictions.

    Seeing that my family is not excluded from this epidemic I wanted shed light on it. I think music has the power to change people because music may make us aware of things in a poetic way where regular life and TV can't."
