Hip-hop icons Wu-Tang Clan and Nas have announced the 2023 co-headline run of their “N.Y. State of Mind” tour, which will be hitting multiple continents this year. The tour was also recently nominated for Pollstar’s “2022 Hip-Hop Tour of The Year.”
Founded in New York City's Staten Island in the early 1990s, the Wu-Tang Clan is comprised of members RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, and the deceased Ol' Dirty Bastard (ODB). Their name is a reference to a 1983 martial arts film.
Led by the production of RZA, samples from martial arts films have thematically appeared throughout the group's music, as have samples of classic funk and soul tracks from artists like Rick James, James Brown, and Syl Johnson. As a group, Wu-Tang Clan have three platinum albums among their eight LPs, and the group's complete anthology (including solo albums) has more than 85 full-length releases. More than just rappers, Wu-Tang Clan are entrepreneurs and successful cultural influencers, with an empire that features everything from clothing lines and video games to books and acting credits.
Nas (Nasir Jones) first reached an international audience when his track “Halftime” was tapped by producer MC Serch as the opening cut on 1992’s “Zebrahead” movie soundtrack.
In August 2020, Nas released “King’s Disease” which marked Nas’ first new album in two years. The album was entirely produced by Hit-Boy, and Gabriel “G Code” Zardes serves as the albums co-executive producer. The album won “Best Rap Album” at the 2021 GRAMMY® Awards, marking Nas’ first ever GRAMMY® win.
In August of 2021, Nas released “King’s Disease II,” a sequel to the GRAMMY® Award winning album. “King’s Disease II” was executive produced by Nas and Hit-Boy and features collaborations with Eminem, EPMD, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, YG, Lauryn Hill, Hit-Boy and more. The album earned a nomination for “Best Rap Album” at the 2022 GRAMMY® Awards. Most recently, Nas released a surprise album, “Magic” featuring A$AP Rocky and DJ Premier.
