Wu-Tang Clan coming back to Epic January 7

Almost exactly a year after the killa bees descended on Epic last winter, the Wu-Tang Clan plan a return to Minneapolis on January 7 this year.  It takes brave souls to rap in the dead of winter in this town, but the New York crew is no stranger to snow -- or the warm support of Twin Cities hip-hop fans.

The last time Wu were in our local news was back in June when Doomtree unveiled their "homage project" mashing up the sounds of Wu with Fugazi:

Last January, Wu's Inspectah Deck told City Pages he was impressed by the dedication of Minneapolis fans, and first announced to our city his plans for a new album. Backstage, Method Man was in "high" spirits and posed for a picture for our photographer. Even ODB's kid showed up, which only partly made up for RZA's absence.

If last year's show is any indication, we're in for a raw performance. Word from the promoter is that RZA, Raekwon, Method Man, GZA, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, U-God and Inspectah Deck will all be performing at the show.

Speaking of the devil psych, no it's the God, get the shit right

Mega trife, and you're I killed you in a past life

On the mic while you was kicking that fast shit

You reneged tried again, and got blasted

Half mastered ass style mad ruff task

When I struck I had on Timbs and a black mask

Remember that shit? I know you don't remember jack

That night yo I was hitting like a spiked bat

and then you thought I was bugged out, and crazy

strapped for nonsense, after me became lazy

yo, nobody budge while I shot slugs

Never shot thugs, I'm running with thugs that flood mugs

So grab your eight plus one, start flipping and tripping

Niggas is jetting I'm licking off son

Wu, Tang Wu, Tang Wu, Tang Wu, Tang

It's pretty much impossible to miss this show if Ghostface is going to be there.
