The Wu-Tang Clan is more than a pioneering rap group. Over their legendary 20-year span in the music industry, they’ve become global pop culture icons with strong ties in not only music, but also fashion and film. Tune in as Frank The Butcher speaks with Power, the executive producer and founder of The Wu-Tang Clan and Wu Tang Brand, on the Clan’s Legacy and upcoming 20 Year anniversary. Wu-Tang Clan still ain’t nothing to f*ck with.
Lead by Ghostface Killah, the beat for “Black Out” is classic Wu, all busy drumwork and expensive strings. No matter who’s rapping, the track holds its own and stays interesting for a full four minutes. Check out “Black Out” below. The soundtrack in stores now!!!
The Brooklyn-born Killa said that while he has yet to see the Abbot’s film in theaters, he’s exceedingly proud of RZA’s work. He recalled frequenting a number of kung fu film screenings with the new-found director, and said that it’s fulfilling to him to witness RZA’s career lead him to this moment.
“To tell you the truth, brother, I haven’t even see the movie as of yet,” he said. “But just knowing my brother and this has been his vision since we watched kung fu movies on 42nd Street back in the days. So to see his vision finally come to the level of what he saw it? That’s what’s more fulfilling for me more than anything because he finally lived it out how he wanted to do it… I listened to the soundtrack. Oh I definitely listened to the music. I just didn’t get a chance to see the movie yet. I listened to the soundtrack from top to bottom. I gots to do that.”
