The Wu biographical series on Hulu was awesome, but some facts got altered for dramatic purposes. This is a respectable breakdown separating fact from fiction in the Hulu show (so watch the show before you watch the video), from the part I observed. I watched about half of it just to make sure it was on point, so let me know what you think after you watch the whole thing. Leave your comments below!
For a long time now, Rza has been committed to the vegan lifestyle, which involves not killing animals for your food, clothes, or lifestyle. he speaks more about it in the video above. As part of that commitment, Rza just launched a new vegan puffer jacket, so you can keep warm this winter without killing an animal to do it. Instead of animal by-products like leather, the coat is made of recycled plastic bottles, which deals with another environmental problem, how to re-use waste we’ve already created (such as plastic). Most importantly for the b-boy aesthetic, the coat also looks fly as well! You have to act fast though, because only 100 of these limited edition jackets are made available for purchase at this site. 15% of the proceeds will be donated to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
(Rza also keeps the kung-fu tradition alive by naming the coat The Flying Guillotine)

This interview has them discussing the early days of the label. The interviewer (Vlad) notes that Tung Twista (now Twista) and Madcap were the first two acts signed up there. I guess that means Wu was fourth?
Almost to the day, but I missed the anniversary by a few weeks. Noreaga keeps interrupting Raekwon throughout SMH
