... in its own ramshackle way, it is a far more authentic representation of the Wu-Tang Clan than anything HBO might get a big name Hollywood director to produce. Full Review

Product Description:

The Wu-Tang Clan arose in 1993 to change hip-hop forever, with complex rhymes, dissonant soundscapes, and a personal mythology inspired by martial-arts flicks. The nine-person rap crew from Staten Island was an A-Team of verbal warfare--with GZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and others contributing a unique flavor to the mix. And while some rappers become embarrassing by their second album, Wu-Tang continued to produce shockingly original music for a period unrivaled by other artists. Narrated by Gerald "Gee-Bee" Barclay, this documentary examines the history of the Wu, their rise and fall, and what the future may hold for one of the greatest teams in hip-hop.

Description by Paramount:

In the summer of 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan emerged from the slums of Staten Island, NY and took the hip-hop world by storm. Their legacy spanned over a decade, selling more than 20 million albums. Their talents brought them success and their music made them legends. This is their story..."WU: The Story of the Wu-Tang Clan" is an inspiring tale of the Clan's rise to power, fall from greatness and phoenix-like rebirth. This gem of a documentary includes a spectacular presentation of never before seen rare concert footage and interviews intimately narrated by acclaimed, Gerald "Gee-Bee" Barclay.
