Wu-Tang Clan in Edmonton
In support of their 20th Anniversary and upcoming reunion album A Better Tomorrow – The Wu hit the Edmonton Expo Centre Saturday night with classic tracks from their Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) debut album – “Bring da Ruckus” “Da Mystery of Chess Boxin’” “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuttin to Fuck Wit” brought the house into a frenzy of WU TANG chants. Topping it off was an assortment from recent albums like The W‘s Gravel Pit and the ultimate classic “Triumph” off Wu-Tang Forever that had everyone chanting along.
Despite the huge absence of Raekwon and Method Man, and of course the late Ol Dirty Bastard, the U-God, GZA, RZA, Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa and Cappadonna filled in along with help from the sold out crowd. RZA would spray the audience with champagne as the mosh pit went wild!!
Audience participation in hip hop shows is a must as the crowd was asked to wave dolla dolla billz y’all as the familiar hook to “C.R.E.A.M.” filled the scene.
Wu-Tang DJ and designer of the iconic Wu Logo, DJ Allah Mathematics took the spotlight as he showed off his turntable skills. Each member got their turn to spit classic tracks from their solo works, such as Cappadonna dropped “Run” Ghostface spit severalIronman tracks some he NEVER BEFORE did live except here in Edmonton! Even U-God got to perform “Dat’s Gangsta” off his solo debut Golden Arms Redemption. Despite the main leads, the Clan spit out one for the ladies with “Ice Cream.”
And no Wu-Tang show would be complete without a tribute to the late Ol Dirty Bastard with the infectious piano beats of “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” to the break yo neck “Brooklyn Zoo” nods to his hooks throughout the night like “Shame on a N****” and of course his most commercial hit “Got Your Money” – the chants of “RIP ODB, GOD” echoed throughout the venue.
The BAD of the Concert: The sound system was pure garbage. Way too loud to even hear anything, Deck and u-God’s mics didn’t work. It almost seemed they had to give up cuz shit was so wack.
The Other: Meet and Greet for $250, it was a quick rushed autograph session with a bit of organized chaos, packed in a small room with the occasional power outage. Despite all that, got to spread dat message to RZA HIMSELF. As I told him what an influence he was on our community, gave him my card and a copy of our pamphlet to spread DA WERD. He was like to his handlers “THIS IS FOR ME!” so now THE Chief Abbott knows what thatSNSD vs Wu-Tang theory we started here at JPHiP.com
I was able to squeeze in a few words with GZA “Hey when you coming to OUR university to lecture?” Spent some quality time with the reserved Masta Killa and U-God. One of my all time favorite Wu Members, Deck was the funniest reacting to the poster itself “Girls Generation?!?”
This all being held BEFORE the concert, missed almost all the opening acts except Killa Beez Black Knights, and since it was close to show time, the “sign anything, take pictures with group” I imagined wasn’t what it seemed.
Turn dat NEGATIVE into a POSITIVE. THE Legendary Wu-Tang Clan that had hit the stage for a once in a lifetime event. HiP HoP fans of all generations and backgrounds under one W. The Clan wowed us with grimy tracks and witty unpredictable talent and natural game!

In support of her latest album of the same name, her RED Tour brings along a wide range of dazzling spectacles from shoop-shoop “You Belong to Me” to 50s style “Lucky One” to an EXPLOSIVE hard rock number “Trouble” to being picked up by and butt surfed to the solo stage rocking to “22″ – there was no shortage of hits for fans young and old who fell for her country roots or idolized her through her string of Top 10 hits.
