New York City is set to honor the legendary Wu-Tang Clan by declaring November 9th as “Wu-Tang Clan Day.”

This celebration is a fitting tribute to the iconic rap group’s enduring legacy. To mark the occasion, the Empire State Building will be illuminated in the signature black and yellow colors associated with the Wu-Tang Clan.

In addition to this honor, the Wu-Tang Clan is teaming up with Rock The Bells and SiriusXM for an exciting partnership, according to The Line of Best Fit. The choice of November 9th for the celebration is significant as it marks the day when RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa joined forces to release their groundbreaking album “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).” This album not only revolutionized hip-hop but also played a pivotal role in shaping the New York hip-hop scene, influencing artists like Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep, and Jay-Z, among others.

New York City has planned various Wu-Tang-related events for the special day. RZA will host “The 36 Chambers 30th Anniversary Celebration” at New York’s Gramercy Theatre from November 7th to 9th.


The 36 Chambers company will also open a pop-up shop in the East Village, featuring signed copies of RZA’s graphic novel “Bobby Digital and The Pit Of Snakes,” along with other Wu-Tang apparel, records, and collectibles. Additionally, a screening of “A Wu-Tang Experience: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre” will be hosted by The Hip-Hop Education Center (HHEC), Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and 36 Chambers ALC on November 15th.

As part of RZA’s partnership with SiriusXM, he will present ” #WuWednesdays,” a weekly show on LL COOL J’s Rock The Bells on SiriusXM channel 43. The show will feature new and classic tracks from all Wu-Tang Clan members, exclusive DJ mixes, interviews, and more. The inaugural episode will reflect on Wu-Tang’s recent performance in Queens, New York, for SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop 50 celebration.

Wu-Tang Clan fans have a lot to look forward to, with these exciting events and collaborations on the horizon.
