This is special.
Does NPR miss with this Tiny Desk concerts? Nah. Today, we were reminded of that and the fact that Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to fuck with. In celebration of 25 years since the release of their groundbreaking album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, Masta Killa, U-God, and RZA stopped by to deliver some old classics like “Triumph.” A highlight of the over 20-minute set was Young Dirty Bastard, son of the late Old Dirty Bastard, hopping on a desk and bringing the same energy ODB was loved for.
The “superfriends,” as Raekwon describes them, reminded fans that they still can connect and they support what’s right. They touched on the #MeToo movement and even avoided using certain profanities. The success and impact of the group still resonate to this day. Even though they’ve found individual success in addition to what they achieved as a group, it’s great to see them come together for something as special as this.
They’re riding a wave of a positivity since the release of their short film titled For The Children, and something tells us there’s more to come from the legendary group. Check out the Tiny Desk Concert at the link here.
