Wu-Tang Clan - Method Man
In 1994, we entered the slums of Shaolin and the world of hip hop was never the same. Tonight, on Showtime, at 9PM, we begin “Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men”, the four-part docu-series, on the legendary Hip Hop group.
Director Sacha Jenkins (BURN MOTHERF*CKER, BURN!) looks back on their career, combining intimate and reflective interviews from each of the nine living members with never-before-seen archival footage and performances. The series follows the founding members – RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon the Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Masta Killa and Cappadonna – many of whom were childhood friends in the hardscrabble world of ’70s and ’80s Staten Island and Brooklyn. Their ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit brought them together to overcome the poverty, violence and oppression of their neighborhoods. But it was music and their shared lyrical genius that allowed them to form the most recognized musical movement in the world, all while walking the treacherous tightrope that links business with brotherhood.
So, don’t be that fool that got his nuts laid on a dresser and smashed with a spiked bat. Learn the mathematics and the knowledge of the Wu-Tang Clan.
