Holy shit. The Man With The Iron Fists -- the long-gestating collaboration between Quentin Tarantino, Boston-based Bear Jew Eli Roth, and RZA -- had its first red-band trailer released the other day, and it sure as fuck looks like the logical endpoint for all things WU TANG CLAN. Watch the eye-popping (I am certaintly not the first person to make that joke) teaser below, once you've fully digested the image up top.
Wu-Tang, while always good for an unexpected turn or two, did something absolutely unprecedented at their Boston show last week: they showed up on time. In fact, the show ended at least an hour before they usually go on.
Despite the early onset, Meth, Ghost, and every other living member besides RZA brought much ruckus, pain, and so forth.
