Following last week’s Showtime premiere of The Wu-Tang Clan docuseries, Of Mics and Men, a grip of supplementary scrolls have rolled out.
Earlier this week, Nas detailed his first introduction to the Shaolin assassins — meeting RZA when he was still Prince Rakeem, getting acquainted with a cross-borough crew that spoke the same language as his QB clique. And in a new bonus clip, the lens dials in on a park bench along The Hudson, where Masta Killa is locked into a round of chess with GZA, recounting how The Genius brought him into early Wu-Tang sessions and tasked him with learning one verse, which would eventually close the 36 Chambers assault, “Da Mystery of Chessboxin’.”
You can watch GZA and Masta Killa recount Wu-Tang origins over a game of chess below. Of Mics and Men is available to stream in its entirety on Showtime.
