In addition to the great news that there is a new Wu project in the works, the news that Ghost is quarterbacking the whole situation is icing on the cake. For those who don’t know, Ghost is one of the best beat pickers in the crew. In this interview, Raekwon also touches on what we mentioned here in a prior post: the number of children named after Raekwon, including the apparent revelation that multiple college basketball players are named Raekwon (here’s one). In addition to the recently drafted Raekwon McMillan, there’s also a college football player named Raekwon on the come-up.
Rza and his newfound collaborative partner Paul Banks go back and forth on life and music, including some Rza anecdotes about Nas and Busta Rhymes.
ESPN ran a fascinating story on freshly drafted Miami Dolphins rookie Raekwon McMillan, who was named after Wu-Tang general Raekwon. The story also touches on the fact that almost 1500 children were named Raekwon in the United States between 1995 and 1999, the peak of Wu’s musical influence. Here at WuTangBook, we hope the younger Raekwon goes on to massive success in the NFL and lives up to his legendary namesake!
RIP Ol’ Dirty, Wu-Tang really is for the children!
Some lucky Brooklynites got an opportunity to watch Rza show off his production skills live in an Apple Store in New York City.
Rza continues spreading his musical wings with new music from his joint project with Paul Banks of Interpol, Banks & Steelz.
I self-published a comic book (The Liberators), so I think it’s pretty cool that the interview above (courtesy of Nas-owned outlet Mass Appeal) was shot in a comic book store.
Considering everything that is going on lately, from the Trump administration’s Muslim ban to the Syrian refugee crisis, this song couldn’t have been more timely.
Dame Grease on the beat. That classic gritty NYC sound…
Christmas came early for Wu fans!
(Red’s verse ends on an anti-climactic note with a bit of unnecessary misogyny though)
