2nd Generation Wu has fully embraced the Wu’s legacy.
Wu-Tang Clan is forever.
The sons of four founding members — Method Man, Ghostface Killah, U-God and Ol’ Dirty Bastard — have formed a group called 2nd Generation Wu.
Last, month the group — which consists of iNTeLL (son of U-God), PXWER (son of Method Man), SUN GOD (son of Ghostface Killah), and Young Dirty Bastard (son of the late Old Dirty Bastard) — released their debut single “7.O.D.,” which is a clever flip of the Wu’s iconic single “C.R.E.A.M.”

We are proud to premiere the video for 7.O.D., which features the members roaming the streets of New York City. There are little visuals tricks — like black and white shots — that give the video a retro feel.
Speaking about the song and video, iNTeLL, via email, told us:
We hit parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island To emphasize the hip-hop unity the boroughs have had from way back.
PXWER talked about how the hip-hop community has embraced the group, telling us:
This experience so far has left me extremely humble & grateful, the love has been overwhelming. I’m excited for what the future has in store.
