The Wu-Tang Clan Has Opened A Surprise Pop-Up Shop In West Hollywood

 


The Wu-Tang Clan announced on their official social media channels that they’d be setting up in West Hollywood, California with a surprise pop-up shop that runs from today, Thursday, October 15th, until Sunday, October 18th. What will you find at the Wu-Tang pop-up? We have no clue at this point, but we’re expecting all sorts of limited-edition apparel drops, maybe a vinyl pressing or two, and, if we’re lucky, the black and yellow Wu-Tang Nike Air Force 1s.


Right now details on what is going down at the pop-up are scarce, few if any social media posts linked to the event exist right now, all we really know is that the shop has the operating hours of 11 am to 7 pm and we can assume you’ll need a mask to enter, per county regulations. The Wu-Tang Clan twitter account has been steadily posting images of Wu-Tang apparel so we’re assuming this is a mostly apparel-focused drop.

Many say that the best rapper in Wu is easily Ghostface Killah, yeah Method Man had a great voice but he has 1 great solo project, ODB is one of a kind but to say that he is the best rapper in the group isn't true, he definitely had the most presence.

RZA and GZA of Wu-Tang Talk 'The Game Of Life'


For as long as the two leaders of the Wu-Tang Clan have known each other, it still shocks GZA that he never played chess with RZA as a kid.


The pair are busy practicing this week for their Twitch debut on Saturday, where they will play and compete in a chess tournament hosted by Chess.com and Hennessy. It’s to benefit Black, Latinx and Asian small businesses struggling with the pandemic. GZA says he still remembers vividly to this day when his cousin taught his 9-year-old self how to play chess.


“I guess I remember it well because he had a black and red checkerboard, but the pieces were like clear plastic neon,” GZA tells The Washington Post in a video interview, who said he never forgot the lesson. “And they were weird colored, and they were caked in green. And he showed me the names of the pieces and how they moved.”

The Story Of Wu-Tang Clan


In the summer of 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan emerged from the slums of Staten Island and took the hip-hop world by storm. Their legacy spanned over a decade, garnering fans worldwide and generating sales in excess of $50 million.

Back in the day, Method Man used to be a cleaner at the Statue of Liberty. The symbolism feels apt because the story of the Staten Island hip-hop collective is the American dream as it should be written.

RZA Talks Second Chances and Cut Throat City Film

 


There calling him the leader of Wu-Tang Clan. RZA, or Bobby, as he is known to close friends and colleagues, had a particular way of putting beats to razer-sharp lyrics that made you feel part of a song’s creative process. Fans feel RZA’s music, both from Wu-Tang and his solo and collaborative efforts, on a cellular level.


An urban-bred intellectual who expresses through a mic or camera lens, RZA is considered prophetic to his community and perhaps a unicorn to mainstream culture. With a penchant for Eastern philosophy as is evident in the name Wu-Tang Clan and lyrical nods to Shaolin Kung Fu, RZA shared, “One thing I’m looking forward to doing in the near future… I’ve never been to India, and I have to check that one off,” referring to the top item on his bucket list. I recommended he connect with Indian author and yogi, Jaggi Vasudev, also known as Sadhguru, when he makes the trip. RZA is so well-read and well-versed, it felt novel giving him someone and something beyond his scope to Google.

WWE Rejects Wu-Tangs Offer

 


WWE allowed plenty of Superstars to make their way to the ring with special music at WrestleMania. For some reason they rejected RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan’s offer to add new lyrics to Batista’s track for no charge.


The Animal jumped on Twitter and he told a very interesting story. This was in reply to a fan who didn’t like Saliva’s version of Batista’s song much.


Dave Bautista is a likeable guy, and he has some famous friends. RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan wanted to add his own spin to Batista’s WWE entrance music, but the company declined.


This might be a surprising story for some fans to hear. After all, we’re talking about the Wu-Tang Clan, but WWE rejected the idea and went their own direction.


CM Punk didn’t seem surprised by this story at all. He tweeted back saying: “Sounds about right.” At least we now know what could have been.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Vs. Wu Tang Clan


At the 1996 Def Jam Holiday Party, tensions between the two camps surged to a boiling point after Ghostface Killah confronted Wish Bone as he was walking through NYC club Mirage (now Terminal 5).

According to Cons, a confrontation between members of the Wu-Tang Clan and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony ignited a pretty serious brawl around the height of their fame.

At the time, the East Coast and West Coast feud was in full swing, and Ghostface apparently didn’t take too kindly to a rapper signed to Eazy-E’s Los Angeles-based Ruthless Records label hanging out at the NYC hot spot.

Key Moments In Hip-Hop History

 


Hip hop is more than music; it’s a cultural movement that incorporates different elements of art. Before there was Lil Yachty, Young M.I.A., or YNW Melly, there was a world of hip hop artist who's name rain supreme even still today.


Back when music was real, artist had the opportunity to shine in their own distinctive way. Rap is one of the most distinctive features of hip-hop. Rappers use rhythm, lyrics, and vocal tone to express themselves. The best rappers are distinguished by their “flow” – the way the words run together without the performer getting tongue-tied.


Take this journey with me into the world of hip hop as we define all the odds to our culture. Note: When I mention hip hop, I don't mean rap music. They do not fit into the same category as each other.
