Trivia / Wu-Tang Clan

  • Creator Backlash: Ghostface Killah, Method Man, and Raekwon are not keen with Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, Method Man finding the infamous "88 year ban" enforcement a bit too much (even more so when the media changed his words around), Killah saying it's "Not a Wu-Tang Clan album", and Raekwon finding the "88 year ban" bullshit.
  • Executive Meddling: Somewhat in a more darker kind. It seemed none of the members were told about RZA's idea of enforcing the "88 year rule" for Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, Method Man confirming in an interview that he wasn't even told about him, Killah and Raekwon finding the whole treatment of the album very degrading.
  • Name's the Same: Ghostface Killah made a song called "Baby" and it has nothing to do with the other "Baby" or the other other "Baby"
  • Old Shame: RZA and GZA's albums before the Clan was formed.
  • One of Us: Most if not all of them, but the GZA in particular. You'll notice many of them have a nickname referencing comic books.
    • He's also a huge chess fan, hence the song "Da Mystery Of Chessboxing" and the cover of Liquid Swords.
    • Method Man referenced Fist of the North Star in "P.L.O. Style" from Tical.
    • Inspectah Deck - 'Swinging through your town like your neighborhood Spiderman'
    • Raekwon has tracks on Only Built For Cuban Linx Pt. 1 and Only Built For Cuban Linx Pt. 2 named North Star and The Return of the North Star respectively.
      • Raekwon the Chef: "So, when you see me on the real, formin' like Voltron Remember I got deep like a Navy Seal!"
    • Ghostface Killah refers to himself as Iron Man or Tony Stark, and so naturally he lobbied hard for a cameo in The Movie. He got it, but it was cut from the release.
