Who knows if Wu-Tang Clan will be around forever, but for one night they were all hanging out with Jon Stewart.
All nine members of the Wu entered The Daily Show last night (Aug. 7) to treat fans to not one but two performances, and to finally announce the release date of their long-delayed reunion album, A Better Tomorrow.
Raekwon, GZA, RZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna all sat down with Stewart (yes, they managed to fit around his desk), who thanked the guys for coming by for this historic moment.
The nine members discussed how hard it is to keep things together and announced that their new album will be out in November. They also paid tribute to Ol’ Dirty Bastard with a T-shirt that they gave to Stewart as a present. The host says he will be wearing it to bed.
Along with playing their 1997 track “Triumph,” the guys also debuted a new song, “Ron O’Neal,” which starts with Method Man declaring, “Coach, put me in the game” over a blaring horn and later has RZA calling out his narcissistic ways. Apparently Raekwon really knocked some sense into him.
Watch the clip of “Ron O’Neal” below.
