Despite the War Iraq and the volatile situation in the Middle East, WU-TANG CLAN, one of the world’s biggest rap groups, are heading out to tour Israel.

Wu-Tang members Cappadonna and Remedy are have announced plans to perform in Tel Aviv, Beersheva, Haifa, Eilat, and Jerusalem in May.

“As Americans and hip-hop artists, we want to show solidarity with the people of Israel,” Cappadonna told Launch music. “No one thinks that a Hebrew-speaking country has anything to do with hip-hop, but hip-hop is alive in Israel and we are going there to foster the new generations’ way of communicating.”
