Wu Tang fans will soon get the opportunity to be serenaded by Ghostface Killah while enjoying a full course meal that consists of 36 flavors.
Han Dynasty is partnering with Dogfish Head Brewery and Founders Brewing Company to host a Wu Tang-inspired dinner complete with 20 dishes. The event began at Han Dynasty’s original Philadelphia location, and when the word got out that a Hip Hop inspired dinner was happening an unidentified Clan member reached out to the owner Han Chiang and said, “Hey, how are you going to do a Wu-Tang dinner without us?” Then the rest was history.
“So they came in, Han met them and they collaborated [on] the dinner,” Liang said. “Han’s always been a big fan of Wu-Tang.” The 36-flavored smorgasbord is a salutation to the group’s debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
The event is taking place at Han Dynasty’s Brooklyn location on November 20th. Stay tuned for exclusive coverage from The Source. Tickets for the event are $185, and must be purchased in advance. To reserve your seat inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org

Twenty-four years ago yesterday, the Wu-Tang Clan brought the muthafuckin’ ruckus and taught us all about Shaolin shadow boxing and their own special sword style. The release of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) transformed the rap landscape, as kung fu flick samples, dirty basement beats and raw free associative rhyme patterns set the stage for an East Coast renaissance one year after The Chronic.
After that it didn’t matter how many times RZA told us the Clan was nuthing ta fuk with, everybody was fukkin’ with them heavy. And subsequent generations have continued to do so over the course of six official group albums (not counting that one-of-one joint that nobody’s ever heard).
The Wu-Tang brand may be the most powerful in hip hop history, but even the most ardent Wu head will admit that the Clan has had its ups and downs over the years. (And speaking of Wu heads, have you tested your Wu IQ?)
Between Enter the Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang Forever, The W, Iron Flag, 8 Diagrams, and A Better Tomorrow, there is a LOT of music out there and it’s time someone took the trouble to evaluate it all carefully as a public service to hip hop and to the Clan. MASS APPEAL is that someone and today is that day. We’ve subjected all the cuts from their official albums to the sharpest scrutiny. (That means no soundtrack or compilation joints, and the solo albums are a whole different chamber, which we’ll be dealing with one day… soon). So without further ado, let’s step inside the room and prepare for the boom.

In 2016, Ghostface Killah released video single “Worldwide” with French DJ/producer Wax Tailor. Always prolific, Tony Starks made a song about acquiring stamps in his passport as he kicks science and rugged raps while trotting the globe.
Some a la carte singles come and go for any artist, but “Worldwide” has been given second life by way of an official remix. Veteran MC, producer, drummer, DJ, and author J-Zone was commissioned to rework the song with his band, The Du-Rites. The duo is comprised of the Queens, New Yorker on the drum kit and keys/organ with Pablo Martin on guitar and bass. Playing double-duty each, they create a sound that’s greatly informed by so many of the ’60s and ’70s 7″ Soul, R&B, and Funk records that Zone has long collected and curated.
For Ghost’, who is influenced greatly by the precise break-beat concoctions of Ced Gee, The 45 King, and Paul C., this is a great re-working. The band does not just create a groove. Their music hugs the vocal track and create movements within that give Ghost’ (and Wax Tailor’s creation) the perfect second-go-round the globe.
