The Wu’s new collection is inspired by the ancient Chinese philosophical text, the I Ching.
The Wu-Tang Clan has released a limited edition makeup collection through Milk Makeup. The Wu-Tang x Milk Makeup line includes eight different lipstick colors inspired by the eight trigrams of the ancient Chinese philosophical text, the I Ching. Sacred, Fire, Chi, and Flow are some of the ones featured in the collection. According to the website for the collection, the lipstick is vegan and gluten-free.
To promote the set, Wu enlisted the help of Teyana Taylor, who’s featured in a short video for the collection.
The set is available for $440 in total, or $55 for each individual shade.
Previously, it was announced that Wu-Tang is getting its own television series.
Titled Wu-Tang: An American Saga, the 10-episode show will be based on the Wu’s origin story, as well as RZA‘s books The Wu-Tang Manual and Tao of Wu.
A press release described the series as follows: “Set in early ’90s New York at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.”
“I’m delighted to be partnering with Hulu and Imagine to explore the vast story of the Wuniverse,” RZA said. “Wu-Tang through our music has always strove to inspire as we entertain. This opportunity to continue the Wu – Saga in a 10-episode series will exponentially increase our inspirational style of entertainment. In the immortal words of ODB ‘Wu-Tang is for the Children.’”
An American Saga will be available to watch on Hulu but doesn’t have a release date yet. RZA and Alex Tse (SuperFly) will serve as writers for the show; RZA and Method Man will executive produce alongside Tse, Brian Grazer, and Francie Calfo, and Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, GZA, and the Estate of Ol’ Dirty Bastard will serve as consulting producers.
