Last year the group went on a sold-out run of the 2022 N.Y. State of Mind Tour, being nominated for Pollstar’s 2022 Hip Hop Tour of The Year. Founded in New York City’s Staten Island in the early 1990s, the Wu-Tang Clan is comprised of members RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, and the deceased Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB). Considered by many to be the most significant hip-hop group of all time, the group has three platinum albums among their eight LPs, and the group’s complete anthology (including solo albums) has more than 85 full-length releases.  They are also entrepreneurs and successful cultural influencers, with an empire that features everything from clothing lines and video games to books, and more.

Nas (Nasir Jones) first reached an international audience when his track “Halftime” was the opening cut on 1992’s Zebrahead movie soundtrack. His first full-length album arrived in 1994, Illmatic, becoming RIAA platinum, featuring “It Ain’t Hard To Tell,” “The World Is Yours,” and “One.” In 1996 he released the breakthrough double-platinum It Was Written with his first major crossover singles “Street Dreams” and “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That).” He has released many albums since then, his 2012 album, Life Is Good earned him 4 Grammy nominations including Rap Album of the Year, and is certified RIAA gold. He won the “Best Rap Album” Grammy at the 2021 awards for the 2020 release King’s DiseaseKing’s Disease.
