The legendary hip hop crew Wu-Tang Clan will be reuniting in the UK to mark the 20th anniversary of their classic debut album Enter the Wu-tang (36 Chambers).
As stated on their website…”Since 1993 the NY-based Wu-Tang Clan proved to be the most revolutionary rap group of the mid-’90s – and only partially because of their music. Turning the standard concept of a hip-hop crew inside out, the Wu-Tang Clan were assembled as a loose congregation of nine MCs, almost as a support group. Instead of releasing one album after another, the Clan was designed to overtake the record industry in as profitable a fashion as possible – the idea was to establish the Wu-Tang as a force with their debut album and then spin off into as many side projects as possible. In the process, the members would all become individual stars as well as receive individual royalty checks…
The performance dates and locations are July 25th at O2 Apollo in Manchester and July 26th at O2 Academy, Brixton, London.
The UK tour is part of a year-long celebration of the Wu Tang’s anniversary.
Congratulations Guys!!! Hip Hop Lives On!! and R.I.P. Ol’Dirty
