Wu-Tang Clan Perform With The Roots On Jimmy Fallon


Every rap act should be lucky enough to have the Roots back them live. (Whose drums thump like Questlove’s?!) Last night, Wu-Tang Clan was. I’ve been enjoying the soundtrack to RZA’s The Man With the Iron Fists this week. But not as much as I enjoy the soundtrack he made for Jim Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai back in 1999. If you’ve never listened to that, you should check it out. It’s the sound of a musical mastermind throwing a party, inviting a bunch of friends over, recording it, and editing together the good parts. Like a Wu-Tang version of James Brown’s Funky People albums. Which, if you’ve never listened to those, are like the best thing in the universe.
