The surviving members of Wu-Tang Clan reunited on chat show ‘Kimmel’ last night (October 19) to play two tracks from their seminal debut album ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).’
The group’s living members, RZA, GZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Cappadonna, and Masta Killa, got together to play ‘C.R.E.A.M’ and ‘Protect Ya Neck’ live on the show – you can watch footage of the performance below.
In place of the late rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard, his son, Young Dirty Bastard, joined the rap collective on stage as part of a celebration of the 25th anniversary of their breakthrough record.
The performance was part of a special week of the late night ABC shows, that were filmed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York. Fellow New Yorkers St. Vincent and Cardi B have also made appearances on the show in the last week.
RZA and Method Man were also subject to Jimmy Kimmel’s classic game of “3 Ridiculous Questions.”
Kimmel asked the rappers questions including, “If you could only choose one, hip or hop?” and “Where do goose bumps go?” The latter question prompted RZA to launch into his “scientific theory” on goose bumps.
It was recently announced that the group would be the focus of an upcoming Hulu TV series, dubbed ‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga.”
Last year, Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA sued dog walking company Woof-Tang Clan for trademark infringement – while entrepreneur Martin Shkreli hit the headlines for incidents relating to the fabled Wu-Tang Clan album ‘Once Upon A Time in Shaolin’ – the sole copy of which he reportedly bought for $2 million in 2015.
