"How can Hip Hop be dead if Wu-Tang is forever?" - The RZA
This summer, on the 25th anniversary of the iconic 1997 album, Wu-Tang Forever, explore the many faces of rap's ultimate supergroup in this specially curated tribute series.
Emerging in 1993, when Dr. Dre’s G-funk had overtaken the hip-hop world, the Staten Island, NY-based Wu-Tang Clan was the most revolutionary rap group of the ’90s – and not only because of their music.
With their kung fu movie references, wildly popular Wu-Wear, and the virtuoso sampling of production jedi The RZA, this loose congregation of nine MCs looked and sounded like nothing before them. Their unorthodox business model, in which individual members negotiated solo contracts, delivered a collective roundhouse kick to the record industry.
Over four rarely screened films, relive the life-changing concerts, all-night parties and martial arts movie marathons that made Wu-Tang into modern legends. Celebrate the art and legacy of Shaolin's Finest.
