Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin Comes Out In 88 Years

Last spring the world got a brief preview of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, the secret Wu-Tang Clan album that will be released in a limited edition of 1 and auctioned off to the highest bidder. That might be all most of us hear from the project for the rest of our… More »

Run The Jewels, YG, And The Magnetic Appeal Of Male Friendship

Anyone can do something once. The early announcements on rap blogs, like this one from HipHopDX, were innocuous enough: "After the critical and commercial success of 2012's R.A.P. Music, Atlanta, Georgia's Killer Mike and Brooklyn, New York's El-P are taking it one step further. While Mike already confirmed a follow-up to the album o… More »

Album Of The Week: Wu-Tang Clan A Better Tomorrow

The problem with the new Wu-Tang Clan album A Better Tomorrow is that it's not the last Wu-Tang Clan album. The last time the whole group came together, it was on 2008's 8 Diagrams, a messy psychedelic boom-bap splooge that fully indulged RZA's wandering acid-samurai sensibility. It was glorious. More than The W or TheMore »

Wu-Tang Clan – “A Better Tomorrow”

(Most of) Wu-Tang Clan performed on Letterman last night and they've followed that up by releasing the title track from their forthcoming album A Better Tomorrow. The track samples the Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes and Teddy Pendergrass collaboration "Wake Up Everybody." It follows a long string of singles that have included "More »

Watch Most Of Wu-Tang Clan Reassemble On Letterman

Anytime you go to a Wu-Tang Clan show, it's always interesting to see how many of the crew's nine members will actually show up. (The most I've ever seen is eight; the least is four.) This apparently holds true even for the group's late-night TV appearances. While the entire group managed to come through for… More »

RZA Wants You To Go Vegan “For A Better Tomorrow”

Trust RZA to find a way to promote A Better Tomorrow, the forthcoming Wu-Tang Clan reunion album, while talking about something completely unrelated. In this case, that unrelated thing is the cause of veganism. In a new promotional spot for PETA, RZA talks about his reasons for going vegan and advises anyone watching to… More »

Wu-Tang Clan – “Necklace”

The assembled forces of the Wu-Tang Clan are due to make their big return in a few weeks with their long-awaited reunion album A Better Tomorrow, and we've already heard tracks like "Ron O'Neal" and "Ruckus In B Minor." "Necklace," the latest track the group has shared, is a woozy, stumbling psych-rap lurch… More »

Wu-Tang Clan – “Ruckus In B Minor”

The Wu-Tang Clan will celebrate their twentieth anniversary by releasing a new album called A Better Tomorrow, which will be their first record for Warner Bros. We've already heard lead single "Ron O'Neal" and promo track "Keep Watch," and now here's another new one. "Ruckus In B Minor" mashes up rap and… More »

Wu-Tang Clan Unveil A Better Tomorrow Bluetooth Speaker

A few months back, the Wu-Tang Clan appeared on The Daily Show and said that their 20th anniversary album, A Better Tomorrow, would be out later in the year. Now that album has an official release date: Black Friday, which is on 11/28 this year. In a new interview with Billboard, RZA revealed… More »

Wu-Tang Clan – “Ron O’Neal”

Last night, all nine surviving members of the Wu-Tang Clan were on The Daily Show, where they all sat for a group interview and debuted "Ron O'Neal," the first single from their much-awaited new album A Better Tomorrow. But it's not real until it's on Soundcloud, and so now it's real. The studio versio… More »

Watch All 9 Wu-Tang Clan Members Reunite & Debut “Ron O’Neal” On The Daily Show

It's almost impossible to get the nine surviving members of the Wu-Tang Clan in one room together, especially if that's where they're supposed to be. (I once saw a Wu-Tang festival set with four guys.) But on last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart somehow got everyone (Cappadonna included) to assemble on the set, getting them… More »

Watch Nardwuar Interview The Wu-Tang Clan

Recently Nardwuar The Human Serviette took on the Wu-Tang Clan for an interview, including RZA (who, as expected, does most of the talking), Ghostface, and Raekwon (who recently reconciled with the group). To account for the large number of interviewees, it's an extra-long video, filled with plenty of talk about obscure kung fu movies,… More »

Wu-Tang Affiliate Who Cut Off His Penis Was On PCP, Now Wants To Do Porn

A few months ago, we heard the bizarre and horrifying news that vaguely Wu Tang-affiliated rapper Andre "Christ Bearer" Johnson had cut off his own penis and jumped from a second story balcony. After fortunately having his penis surgically reattached, he spoke to TMZ, explaining that he had been feeling alone and depressed… More »

Wu-Tang Affiliate Explains Why He Cut Off His Penis

A few weeks ago we heard the bizarre news that the vaguely Wu-Tang affiliated rapper (and half of the LA duo Northstar) Andre "Christ Bearer" Johnson was in critical condition after cutting off his penis and throwing himself out of a window. Adding insult to injury, Wu-Tang quickly distanced themselves from the rapper. Now… More »

Raekwon And RZA Reach Truce

The internal dymanics of the Wu-Tang Clan have always been a fascinating thing, but lately, they've been fascinating in the bad way, with Raekwon publicly bickering with crew leader RZA over the direction of the group and their in-progress album A Better Tomorrow. Last month, Rae announced that he was "on strike" from the… More »

Bumbershoot Lineup 2014

The Bumbershoot Festival goes down in venues around Seattle every year on Labor Day weekend, and the lineup for this year's festivities on 8/30-9/1 just came out. As usual, it's a unique assembly of talent, not just a retread of your basic festival mainstay. A sampling of notable acts: Wu-Tang Clan (featuring... who knows?), the… More »
