Wu-Tang Clan documentary to be released next month

Wu-Tang ClanWu: The Story of the Wu-TangBETavailable

Barclay, a childhood friend who grew up in the same Staten Island neighborhood as some of the group, said he graduated film school around the same time the Wu-Tang Clan really started to gain traction in the minds of the public and critics in 1993. Barclay intuitively felt they would accomplish something special and recorded some candid footage from the group's beginnings and decide to compile it over a decade later.

Following the untimely death of Ol' Dirty Bastard in 2004, the Clan reunited in 2007 for the favorably reviewed 8 Diagrams. A new Clan release will hit stores the same day as the DVD, featuring a melange of solo and Wu-Tang hits.

To watch a brief interview with Barclay where he discusses the back story behind his long-time-coming documentary, go here.
