Earlier this week Showtime announced that it has acquired the TV broadcast rights to Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men. The first two episodes of the four-part docuseries about the legendary hip-hop group will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 28th, with the docuseries scheduled to air on Showtime in the spring. According to the Showtime website, the series will give us the real story of the Wu-Tang with never-before-seen footage and interviews recounting the obstacles traversed to stay united as one Wu family.
The most recent time I saw one of the members of Wu-Tang was just under four years ago, when I shot the Ghostface Killah & Badbadnotgood show at The Opera House. Though it was just under a week before the release of their joint album Sour Soul, they only ended up performing one song (“Raygun”) from the album. Instead, they leaned heavily into Ghost’s extensive solo and Wu-Tang back catalogue, and threw in a few covers (The Jackson 5, Ol’ Dirty Bastard & Nas, respectively), which suited the fans just fine.
