Wu-Tang Clan – “People Say” feat. Redman (Prod. By Mathematics)

BANGER! More proof that Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to f*ck wit’… Unless you got the skills, like Redman, to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and hold your own on a track. Reggie Noble did that, “People Say.” Check it out for yourself though.

Raekwon speaking on how songs came together for Wu-Tang Clan back in the day; especially recounting how he was there to grab the beat for his classic “Criminology” from RZA right ‘off the stove’ at the home studio (because if he wasn’t, someone else would…that’s just how the wolves ate in the studio)!

That’s just the beginning. Check out all this good content; a series of shorts that start above and continue after the jump.

Wu-Tang Clan – “A Better Tomorrow” (Video)

Black lives matter. Hip-Hop matters, especially when it is bringing truth to light like this. Great flip of the “Wake Up Everybody” music by Teddy Pendergrass for today’s cause. Respect to Wu-Tang for putting this out; especially now.

This visual was created by Wu-Tang Clan in the hopes of inspiring change and promoting unity throughout the world.

Nardwuar Talks Old School And Kung-Fu With The Wu-Tang Clan (Video)

Ahaaaaha! RZA and GZA may want to bury some of that stuff Nardwuar dug up on them, but hey…that’s what he does. Great interview. Plus Nard brought gifts, as always. Very cool conversation with the Wu crew. Thought you were just gonna come rock Vancouver and chill in the dressing room with crew and [eye] candy? Nah, Nardwuar is coming through. And before you know, he will have impressed you…with his knowledge and genuineness. That’s likely why artists either know him or warm up to him…and clown his fashion sense (ha).

(Tense in some spots. You MUST watch to the end. Will Nard get to wrap with his ‘doot doola doot doo’?)

RZA Speaks on ‘Iron Fist’ and More on ‘Last Call With Carson Daly’ (Video)

RZA is ‘on Cloud 11’ speaking on his new movie “The Man With the Iron Fists.” Directing and starring in it… incredible responsibilities and power to make a lifelong dream come true. Watching Kung Fu flicks since a pre-teen, RZA finally got a chance to make one happen. But to master the art, he had to study with a Master. As he tells Carson Daly on ‘Last Call’ RZA became the willing student of Master filmmaker Quentin Tarantino! Watch as RZA schools Carson on martial arts films and more in the video clip above.
