WU-TANG CLAN Intersection, Grand Rapids Jan. 6, 8 p.m. $40 in advance, $45 day of show sectionlive.com, (616) 451-8232


FEW HIP-HOP GROUPS HAVE been as influential as Wu-Tang Clan. The group shot to fame in 1993 with the release of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Wu-Tang consists of some of the most famous names in rap music, such as RZA, GZA, Ghostface Killah, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard (who sadly died in 2004), a.k.a. Big Baby Jesus, a.k.a. Dirt McGirt, a.k.a. Osiris. The group has spawned


a global empire consisting of a clothing line and video games, as well as having a considerable impact on pop culture. RZA and GZA have both appeared in multiple Jim Jarmusch films, and RZA wrote the score for the classic Quentin Tarantino movie Kill Bill. Now promoter Mike G, of Grand Rapids based hip-hop act La Famiglia, has gotten most of the original line-up to perform in the Gun Rue. On Jan. 6, U-God, Raekwon, GZA, Ghostface, Methodman, Masta Killa, and Inspectah Deck will all take the stage at the Intersection. This show is guaranteed to sell out, so whether you are a hip-hop fan or not, be sure to get tickets early, and rest assured, Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to f*ck with. Reported by Nick Manes
