The "Wu Classics" were performed for NPR's "Tiny Desk" series.
Whenever NPR releases a new video from their Tiny Desk series, you already know it'll be worth tuning into. The intimate setting offers a space for artists to truly connect to their audience, allowing Jorja Smith, Saba, DVSN, and more to wow the concertgoers in an original manner. While you wouldn't expect all the current members of the Wu-Tang Clan to fit on such a small stage, the classic group made their way into the house and shut it down.
The Wu recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of their legendary album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), which was released in 1993. Led by RZA, the collective brought along select members Raekwon, U-God, Inspectah Deck, and others to perform some of the "Wu Classics." As always, this is another amazing episode of Tiny Desk, as Wu even graced the crowd with "one of the top hip-hop songs made in history," transitioning into "C.R.E.A.M." The chants were in full force as the crew were clearly feeling themselves on stage.
Earlier this week, Wu-Tang Clan announced a few shows in New York City and Philadelphia to celebrate the anniversary of one of their most important works. Here's to another 25 years of 36 Chambers. Check out the video above and let us know who you're dying to see at NPR's Tiny Desk.
