As HHK previously reported, two of the biggest brands in Hip-Hop history have collaborated on a joint project that had fans in anticipation one year before its release. Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block (Wu Block) was released on 27th November 2012, and was a joint venture between the two groups, arguably two of the most recognised and talented groups we’ve ever witnessed in Hip-Hop history. Fans of the U.K will be delighted to hear that Wu Block will be performing in London on Tuesday 12th January 2013, and “The Garage” in London will be host to Ghostface and Sheek Louch who will be representing their individual groups. Tickets can be purchased from the link above, where I’ve also listed the official event flyer. You can listen to Wu Block – Stick Up Kids on the youtube player below.
RZA’s The Man With The Iron Fists. (2012)
Written by Adam Leivers
After years of flirting with film through bit-part acting roles and producing film scores for Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Ghost Dog: Way Of the Samurai’ and in part Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill’, the Abbott and founding member of what some would consider the greatest Hip-Hop collective to ever exist has finally struck out on his own.
His directorial debut ‘The Man With The Iron Fists’ sees RZA in his element, creating a truly modern martial arts film that acts as a collage of the Wu-Tang Clan’s noticeable influences and an homage to the classic kung-fu movies he loves.
Hip-Hop Kings are proud to team up with Educated Guests and Vision Music Promotion to give two fans the opportunity to see Shabazz The Disciple LIVE in London. Shabazz will be performing at Brixton Jamm on 31st October 2012 (this Wednesday) with support from Cyrus Malachi, Jon Phonics, Datkid (Split Prophets) and Baileys Brown. With co-signs from the likes of GZA, DJ Premier and many others, the Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Disciple is ready to tear down the London stage by performing tracks from “Death Be The Penalty” and “Crime Saga”. To enter the competition, simply post a comment below, or Tweet (@HHKDotCom) or drop a comment on the official Hip-Hop Kings Facebook page (link above) stating your favourite Shabazz The Disciple record. The winner will be chosen at midnight tomorrow (October 30th) and will win TWO free tickets to see Shabazz The Disciple on Wednesday 31st October. Participants must be 18+ and be able to make their own travel arrangements to, and from the venue.
Taken from “The Man With the Iron Fists” OST, this is the new track from Wu-Tang Clan ft Kool G Rap called “Rivers of Blood”. When the Hip-Hop world was given the news that RZA was nominated as the executive producer for the OST, we’ve been looking for new music daily, and Rivers of Blood features the legendary Kool G Rap makes track six on the OST. I’m fully expecting to hear more tracks ahead of the release which will be available to fans to download on 22nd October 2012, however in the meantime you can watch Wu-Tang Clan ft Kool G Rap – Rivers of Blood on the youtube player below.

During the Wu-Tang Clan‘s tour of the U.K, Method Man, U-God and Masta Killa dropped into BBC Radio 1 to spit a number of freestyles for Tim Westwood on his Tim Westwood show on BBC 1xtra. The Wu-Tang trio rapped over a number of infamous instrumentals including “Yonkers” amongst others, and make the feature one of the most popular in recent times. The Wu-Tang Clan recently announced they will be releasing their forthcoming album “Legendary Weapons which has raised questions over the absence of GZA throughout the project. You can view the details of Wu-Tang Clan’s Legendary Weapons HERE – however you can watch the Wu-Tang Clan freestyle on Tim Westwood TV below.
About Wu-Tang Clan from Wikipedia.
The Wu-Tang Clan is a highly influential Hip-Hop group from New York City that consists of RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard. They are frequently joined by fellow childhood friend Cappadonna, a quasi member of the group. They were formed in (and are associated with) the New York City borough of Staten Island (referred to by members as “Shaolin”), though some of their members are from Brooklyn and one is from The Bronx.
They have introduced and launched the careers of affiliated artists and groups, often collectively known as the Wu-Tang Killa Bees. In 2007, MTV ranked Wu-Tang the fifth greatest Hip-Hop group of all time, and in 2008, About.com ranked them the number one greatest Hip-Hop group of all time, and stated “No weapon in Hip-Hop history can rival the chaotic cohesion of the Wu-Tang Clan. The Clan had so many characters, each with his own eccentricities. They were fearless in their approach. There’s a good reason no group has been able to successfully recreate their sound. The crew spawned countless loosely associated acts. Their classic albums spawned classic albums.”
