In honor of the 25th anniversary of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Wu-Tang Clan returned to television for a performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Friday night (Oct. 19).
Capping off Kimmel’s week-long visit to Brooklyn, the iconic rap group hit the stage to perform two classics off their seminal 1993 debut album, “Protect Ya Neck” and “C.R.E.A.M.” The reunion featured all living members of the Wu including RZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, GZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Cappadonna, and Masta Killa, in addition to Young Dirty Bastard, the son of the late ODB.
As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is reportedly being remade with nine other rappers. “We’re gonna make the album with nine MCs from today and each new MC will play a character in the original 36 Chambers,” Loud Records co-founder Steve Rifkind told XXL in May.
A “major tour” is also in the works as well as a 10-episode Hulu TV series, Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
