This week’s #OldSchool Artist Of The Week is Wu Tang Clan. One of the greatest rap groups ever is now immortalized on a street corner along with receiving its own day. Staten Island’s own, The Wu Tang Clan, is now apart of the corner of Targee Street and Vanderbilt Avenue.
WWETV always celebrates the old school on Saturday and what better day to have the Wu-Tang Clan District Day on Saturday, May 4, which featured members of the collective alongside community leaders and Councilwoman Debi Rose.
The late great Ol’ Dirty Bastard once proclaimed “Wu Tang is for the children”, so it was only fitting that today’s event had bounce houses, rock climbing, face painting and games were on hand for young and young-at-heart residents alike.
Wu Tang stepped onto the album charts with the instant 1993 classic, Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers), which was followed by group standouts like Wu-Tang Forever and solo efforts from its members like Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and Ghostface Killah’s Ironman.
