We have recently had the 10 year anniversary of Ghostface’s album “Fishscale” which not only makes me feel incredibly old, but also has inspired a Ghostface day, I’ll be playing classics from the album and his other records, including newer material from the likes of “Twelve Reasons to Die” parts 1 and 2. We will be expecting Ghostface to play plenty of records from his entire discography when he performs in Leeds, which is part of an extensive worldwide tour.

TICKETS | Wu-Tang Clan UK 2015
The Wu-Tang Clan have announced two exclusive dates for UK fans in June 2015. The cities of London and Glasglow will be blessed with the presence of (what we expect) to be all members of the Wu-Tang Clan on the 4th and 5th of June 2015, with tickets being available from the Gigs and Tours website (link above). The Wu-Tang Clan have recently released their album “A Better Tomorrow” which has received mixed reviews from fans, make sure you’ve downloaded the album from iTunes. Also check out the Wu-Tang NAN’S video from Noisey below.
In one of the most anticipated Nardwuar interviews ever, the Vancouver-based character interviews the Wu Tang Clan. In a 25-minute feature, Nardwuar, in typical fashion, is introduced to the full group and proceeds to speak on a number of Wu-Tang Clan influences, including Shaolin vs lama, 10 Fingers of Death, Return of the Street Fighter and more. Feel free to search Nardwuar in the search to view previous Nardwuar interviews. However, you can watch Nardwuar vs The Wu-Tang Clan on the YouTube player below.

It isn’t a secret that the Wu-Tang Clan haven’t been the best of friends over the years. From reported fallouts dating back to as early as 2008, the most recent truce was made between RZA and Raekwon as reported by Rolling Stone. RZA explained the differences were due to a lack of communication (something that appears to be continually an issue for the Wu) however, a truce has been called and the two artists will continue work on the Wu-Tang Clan’s upcoming album “A Better Tomorrow” which is set to drop in July 2014. Hip-Hop Kings have previously reported the secret Wu-Tang Clan album “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” and you can watch the 51 second preview of the album below.
As Hip-Hop Kings revealed earlier this year, the Wu-Tang Clan are releasing a new album titled “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” which will break records as only ONE copy will be pressed. Forbes have released a video today showcasing a 51 second preview of one of the tracks from the album (a Ghostface clip), which was uploaded as a video to their YouTube channel. Reactions from fans are mixed, and we’re expecting to see and hear plenty of other promotion and news ahead of the release. In related news, RZA was interviewed speaking on the album which you can watch on the link listed above. You can watch the Wu-Tang Clan Secret Album – 51 Second Preview on the YouTube player below.

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.
