If you're a hip hop buff, the phrase "Enter the 36 Chambers" probably gets you excited for a particular East Coast US rap group. After much speculation, caused by mysterious social media posts and posters plastered around the city, it has been confirmed that Wu-Tang Clan is coming down under.
Time to prepare your dollar dollar bills — the group will be hitting Kiwi soil this December, playing two shows in Christchurch and Auckland. This will be the first time New Zealand audiences will see the full lineup perform.
The shows will coincide with the 25th anniversary of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chamber), which features hit tracks 'C.R.E.A.M.', 'Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing ta Fuck Wit' and 'Protect Ya Neck'. All nine members — RZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, GZA and Cappadonna — will perform the acclaimed album in full.
Earlier this month it was announced that Kendrick Lamar was bringing his much-hyped 'DAMN.' pop-up to New Zealand, and we can only hope Wu-Tang Clan follows suit, bringing its 'Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues' Pop-Up down under, too.
