After hours of torrential downpours and chants of “WU-TANG CLAN AIN’T NOTHIN TO (you know)”, 7 out of the army of rappers that is the Wu-Tang Clan finally made it to the RBC Bluesfest stage for the first time. While a large majority of the crowd were soaked to their bones, the Wu-pride was still at an all-time high as a sea of W’s raised upon their entrance. Method Man’s magnetic personality overtook the show as he was more amped than the rest of the collective. Having seen members of the group perform numerous times in Ottawa before (Raekwon, Ghostface, and Cappadonna to name a few) we noticed the show was more toned down and orderly than normal. Regardless, (almost) all members of Wu-Tang performing on the same stage was an incredible “cross it off your bucket list” moment to see. Wu and weed in the atmosphere, the dismal weather couldn’t keep back the exhilaration of every hip hop head in the city.
