WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN premieres Friday May 10th at 9 PM ET/PT on SHOWTIME
Throughout the history of hip-hop, no single group changed the game in the same way the Wu-Tang Clan did. SHOWTIME’s new docu-series WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN premiering Friday, May 10 at 9 PM ET/PT poignantly captures their struggles and triumphs in intimate detail. Director Sacha Jenkins (Word is Bond, Burn Motherf*cker, Burn) creates a group portrait that transcends music and delves into broader themes of race, economic strife, and brotherhood while weaving their distinctly raw and resonant sound throughout.
Robert Diggs knew that there was something special about the way he and his friends from Staten Island and Brooklyn told stories. They were apostles of hip hop culture, fans of kung fu cinema, members of the Five Percent Nation. They were survivors. Brilliant kids with absolutely no social capital. Then they cut a song – “Protect Ya Neck” – and the world hasn’t been the same since. The RZA, The GZA, ‘Ol Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon The Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, Cappadonna, Masta Killa, and Method Man were on their way.
WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN is a Mass Appeal production in association with Endeavor Content. Peter J. Scalettar, Peter Bittenbender, and Chris Gary serve as executive producers.
