The RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa have been honored by their city. As reported by XXL, the Wu-Tang Clan members were immortalized in Staten Island when a district was named after them on Saturday (May 4). The naming ceremony took place at the intersection of Targee Street and Vanderbilt Avenue, which has officially been renamed Wu-Tang Clan District. The rainy weather did not stop a crowd of people from attending the ceremony.
Ghostface Killah was at the ceremony and spoke to the crowd about the historical moment. “It’s like a dream right now,” he stated. “It’s like, yo, 25 years later to come back and to have district, a block named after your crew. It’s like, yo, it’s unbelievable. First of all, people don’t get to make it 25 years later. To come from Staten Island, I wanna tell y’all anything is possible. I never saw this day coming. I knew that we were some ill MCs, but I didn’t know it would take it this far.” Now that the Wu-Tang Clan has a district, can RZA accomplish his goal of getting the crew into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame? Anything is possible.
