Wu Tang Clan in Staten Island: RedBull Tour

Peace to the world,

As I promised, you have the second part of my RedBull Tour. Two days after Slick Rick’s show in « Le Bronx », another show was organized : Wu Tang Clan was performing at home!


I remember that I left the office around three something, I speeded everybody in order not to be late because the club where we were supposed to go was at « Noman’s Land »… For real ! The club was located at Arthur Kill road… Weird name, isn’t it ? But let me explain to you something… In Staten Island, there were so many crimes, centuries ago and streets are testimonies of murders: Arthur Kill Road, Great Kills Road…
After more than one hour of buses, rain and wait, we finally arrived at the EVE ULTRA LOUNGE in Staten Island.

I took a sit because a discussion was organized from 5:00 to 7:00. Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, Cappadonna and DJ Mathematics were there to explain how they realized “Enter the Wu Tang, 36 Chambers“, what was each’s role, how they wrote it, how they had been inspired for the beats, the rhymes and evrything, where was their studio, the atmosphere, the importance of DJ Mathematics, how they had to represent the Islandtheir neighbourhood…

Here for you, some explanations:

Then we had a break, time for us to find a place to eat but, believe it or not, it was like “Mission Impossible “!!! We found something in a “western bar” (not really good and quite expensive…). Back from the food adventure, I met my brother from another mother Chu Gotz, to take pictures of his artist (he is artist manager and CEO for Mafia Magazine)

Around 09:00 pm, we came back in the club where I met so many Wu fans.

DJ Mick Boogie gave us an amazing set so we enjoyed by dancing, singing and freestyling.

We were waiting for the expected Wu Tang but during the discution, just Raek, Ghost, Masta and Capp were here and a show with just four rappers out of nine… Sorry but that sucks!!!! We were kind of desappointed but still happy to see them :-)

I definitly LOVE the Shaolin Style Dance ;-p

You can notice that Ghostface has a pager… This guy is oldschool jajajajaja!

 

But finally.. SURPRISE!!!!! Inspectah Deck, GZA and U-God came too!

This video is a special dedication to a woman who rapped Method Man’s verse on “Protect Ya Neck“. She was perfect!

The show ended up with “Reunited“, and at once again, I was half professional and half fanatic ;-)

Unfortunatly, RZA and Method Man were absent… I thought it would be so different without Meth’ because he is the power on stage, but I forgot that I had real entertainers on stage, especially Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna! A huge shout out to Ghostface Killah, I love the way you move!

Outside, I saw Raekwon’s team who were so suprised to see me here and they laughed at me because they say they see me in every part of the globe!

I also took a picture with GZA and met SunGod (Ghostface Killah’s first son) and his manager Skrapp. SunGod is a rapper too, here are two links of him that I like:

With them, it was the beginning of a brotherhood…

 

Peace n kiss,

  1. Mortel ! :D avec la caméra qui tremble et tout ha ha ha ha :D

    C’est bon t’entendre les sons du premier Cuban linx en live avec Cappadonna & Masta en +
    Frais ! D’ailleurs Masta Killah ne lâche pas Fila, il a raison.

    Et puis super la surprise (GZA, U-God & INS)
    Clan in Da front (my favorite 36 chambers track)Yeah !!!!
    Ils auront du balancer “Assassination Day” (Ironman) comme dans les anciens live…
    My favorite Wu-tang track !!!!

    Mais bon un grand dommage quand même car le Wu sans RZA (le scientifique) et
    Meth(le bébé du clan à l’énergie débordante) surtout en live… c’est très bizarre !

    Sinon c’est du lourd tout ça, j’ai kiffé, merci pour ce grand moment virtuel avec le Wu c’est bien Lya ;).

    Randy Dims.

    • Ca c’est du commentaire! Merci beaucoup Randy de partager tes impressions sur l’article!
      Au début j’étais calme mais plus le show avançait, plus mon corps bougeait dans tous les sens jajajajajaja!
      Moi aussi j’ai vraiment aimé voir/entendre Cuban Linx! Masta il a raison! Moi même je ne lâche pas Fila :)
      Clan In Da Front c’est fait parti aussi des mon top 5 Wu Tang! Ce son est juste trop fort! GZA est tellement à l’aise sur ce son, c’est incroyable!
      Moi j’aurais bien kiffé un “Guillotine” de Raek! Ce son’t m’emmène loin loin loin!
      Un show Wu sans Mef’ ça fait peur mais ils ont quand même bien géré! Ca ne veut pas dire que RZA et Meth doivent encore se permettre de ne plus être là!

      La suite au prochain épisode!

      Peace n kiss
