The RZA speaks on the #SOURCE360 Wu-Tang Reunion, going down on 9/20
We’re 8 days away from the 1st annual #SOURCE360 Concert at The Barclays Center, and in case you didn’t know, it will be headlined by the OFFICIAL Wu-Tang Clan reunion, co-headlined by The Diplomats, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Lil’ Kim, Dom Kennedy and Curren$y. Tickets are available here, and you’ll want to get them fast before they’re sold out.
With just over a week left until the big day, The RZA came forth and spoke to the New York Times on what will be a historic day not just for Brooklyn and New York City, but for Hip-Hop as a culture. He had this to say about what will go down Saturday, Sept. 20 at The Barclays Center.
This show is our first time in Brooklyn as a whole in over 15 years. With 4 members being born in that part of New York there is a strong connection with us to that city. We have been touring sparsely through out the year with partial members making and not making their appearance, but this performance will have every surviving member present. Wu-Tang can be considered a pillar of New York Hip-Hop. With no less than 7 gold and platinum solo artists and a combined multi-platinum group all under one banner, you will be hard pressed to find this much Hip-Hop royalty on one stage in unity.This is our first Barclays Center appearance and for most of us the first time we will step into this modern monumental landmark in Brooklyn. After growing up in the rough times of that city trying to find ourselves, it’s a honor to return to it and carve our names into a piece of its history. The Source has been, since the early days, a voice of Hip-Hop music culture and politics and as they celebrate their milestone in history we are delighted to be a part of it and celebrate with them. Brooklyn be prepared to enter the 36 Chambers.
In addition to the #SOURCE360 Concert, the 1st annual #SOURCE360 Expo will start on Saturday, Sept. 18th and continue through Sunday, Sept. 21st, bringing a weekend full of panels, conferences, marketplaces, showcases, performances and film screenings to Brooklyn’s Culural District.
