"That's what make Wu-Tang forever. If you don't plant seeds, it won't be forever. You have to give something back in order for something new to grow..." -- Masta Killa
In addition to my Wu-Tang Clan/ATCQ tribute roundup, you need to check out the Wu-Tang Clan’s short film For The Children: 25 Years of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
In conjunction with the YouTube channel Certified Classics, the film features Wu-Tang members RZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, Masta Killa and U-God reflecting on the cultural impact of their 1993 debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), which turned 25 years old today (Nov. 9). Also, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Rocky and others share their viewpoints as well.
The short film was directed by Shomi Patwary who does a great job of documenting critiques from two generation of rappers about the influence Enter the Wu-Tang had on their lives. In our current times, there appears to be a generational gap between the rap veterans and today's new school of rappers. This film brings it full circle. In short, we have to teach the babies without preaching to them.
Wu-Tang Clan is forever...and yes, they are for the children. R.I.P. Ol' Dirty Bastard.
