For a ‘Hip-Hop Head’ like myself, this is one of the dopest things I’ve heard in a minute, proving things are truly cyclical. The 4 sons of Wu-Tang are here.
In 1993 a group of emcees so razor sharp, if you stepped to them in the booth you’d leave needing stitches, crashed onto the scene. Nine brothers repping Staten Island changed the landscape of Hip-Hop forever.
2nd Generation Wu
Today the sons of U-God, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and Old Dirty Bastard have followed in their father’s footsteps.
Future Begins Now
This month the group released their first single “7 O.D.” on Dock Street Records. The single dropped around the 26th anniversary of Wu-Tang Clan’s classic album “Enter The Wu-Tang.”
PXWER and iNTeLL are related by blood through their mothers. The duo have been pressing music their whole lives. Thought out the 10 year journey of networking and showing up they met two more Wu-Tang offspring.
“2nd Generation Wu” took the stage for the first time at a local Hip-Hop show at Amendment 18 in July.
“Once I was aware that we all do music, I was like ‘holy s***.”
“We aren’t really in communication like that but we all have music in our DNA. Now imagine if we all get together. How powerful that would be.”
IMUer’s please let us know what you think of the 4 sons of Wu-Tang in the comments section below. I feel like I was transported back in time.
